This is, I think, one of the lesser known David McKee books (people will be more familiar with Elmer the elephant and the unforgettable Mr Benn characters). Published around the time when the mighty Superman films would have been at the peak of their popularity, this book would come as humorous alternative! I love all of McKee's work but I find his line drawings a bit more special - they are fresher, funnier and more experimental. Here's a brief biography and further links: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_McKee
