I received a complimentary download of this book from Netgalley in exchange for a review.

This book is a great blend of a chapter book and a comic book. The story centers around Catwoman and her complicated relationship with batman. After a successful robbery and escape from Batman, Catwoman finds that the Penguin has broken into her apartment. He blackmails her to perform some errands for him leaving Selina between a rock and a hard place. I really love how Vecchio portrays Batman and Catwoman. His style is gothic yet beautiful and he manages to not over sexualize her.
I loved seeing the Penguin as well and the ventriloquist. A great chapter book for independent readers. The prose and comic book portions of the story also flow seamlessly together.

This is my 1st book for Coyer Summer Vacation
