CBT: Superman Giant Games Book!

supermangiantgames_01
And we're up to the first Children's Book Theatre installment for 2011, and this time the featured item is this Superman Giant Games Book published in the UK! Now, when you see a book is referred to as "Giant," there's two interpretations possible: The first is that the book has large pages; the second is that the book has a lot of pages. In this case, it's the former, so I'll be able to present this as "done-in-one," if you will!

First feature is "Superman Vs. Super-Foe!"!

An hour later, the story's hitting the streets? That's wicked fast! And I'm not sure why the paper's being referred to as the Metropolis Planet, either.

And now, for the games! These aren't puzzle-type games, they're more like board games! Here's the page with the rules:

    Re: "I'm not sure why the paper's being referred to as the Metropolis Planet"

    It appears this book is from 1967. I think, even then, afternoon papers were beginning to disappear or move to morning schedules. Perhaps, in the struggle to survive, the Daily Planet dropped back to weekly editions?
