The Exciting Adventures of Super-Grover

The Exciting Adventures of Super-Grover by Emily Perl Kingsley; ill. Joe Mathieu (Western Publishing Company, 1978) Grover’s quasi-heroic alter ego was good for laughs on Sesame Street itself but falls horribly flat in this oversized Golden Book. The illustrations are passable but the stories are pure cardboard, reaching futilely for humour while lacking both imagination and basic craft.
