“I WANT TO DRIVE THE BATMOBILE!!!”
The arch villain Penguin really wants to drive the Batmobile, but the readers of this book have been entrusted by the Caped Crusader himself to make sure that doesn’t happen. Special pop-ins of various characters (good guys and villains alike) from the Batman universe encourage the reader to stand firm.
Like Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems, this MAD parody invites readers to interact with the book’s text by going off script and shouting “No!” at the pages. In particular, young superhero fans and Pigeon fans ranging from 2 years old to kindergarten will find a lot here to enjoy, especially if their adult reader puts some “whine” into Penguin’s pleading.
Go ahead, grab a reading partner, and remember, Batman is counting on you to not let Penguin drive the Batmobile.
