Format: Hardcover
The 22-page story "All Creatures Great and Small... Part Two" from the comic book Superman Adventures #8 is reprinted in this volume. This is the second half of a two-part story - the first being Tiny Problems (Superman Adventures) - and is an excellent adventure story for younger readers (and older ones too!) who are interested in the exploits of Superman and his supporting cast. The style of the artwork is heavily influenced by the animated TV / DVD series of DC Comics' superheroes, and so is likely to be familiar to readers. The story is well-written with a clear storyline, characterisation, and well-described action and problem solving situations. As well as the comic story, there is a supporting page of writer & artist biographies (all of whom, as well as the colourist, are veterans of the comic book industry), a general and a Superman-specific glossary, and two pages of Visual Questions and Prompts.

"All Creatures Great and Small... Part Two" continues from the end of the previous volume, where the Kryptonian villain Jax-Ur has used Professor Hamilton's Molecular Scaling Generator to become giant-sized, while leaving both his accomplice Mala and Superman stuck at being two-inches tall. In the ensuing fight, Mala is returned to normal size, but before Superman can be restored, the giant-sized Jax-Ur swallows the machine. He and Mala then march towards Washington DC as Superman and his friends try to stop them. Eventually, Professor Hamilton builds a `space suit' to allow Superman to dive into Jax-Ur's throat and search for the machine...
