Hero vs. Villain is a gently irreverent book of opposites with a slight narrative that plays on the popularity of benign villains and superheroes. Their adversarial relationship makes heroes and villains the perfect stars for a book about opposites. But can sworn enemies learn to be friends?

Praise

**STARRED REVIEW**
"This colorful, sturdy board book delivers a simple yet surprisingly satisfying narrative via minimal but powerful text and dynamic comic-book graphics . . . Artist Meyer's wildly bright colors and strong, playful images lend thrills and narrative continuity to the storyline. Positive, engaging, and, most of all, fun; an outstanding introduction to derring-do."
