In addition to Wonder Woman's big debut in theaters, June also holds another special significance to DC fans. June 3rd happens to be Wonder Woman day, and on June 1st fans can pick up a celebration of the character in Capstone's Be A Star, Wonder Woman children's book.
Capstone has teamed up with writer Michael Dahl and artist Omar Lozano once again (Good Morning, Superman) to bring the mighty Amazon to their adorable universe in Be A Star, Wonder Woman. The book will utilize the same format of Good Morning, Superman, and Bedtime For Batman, following a young girl in this case as she aims to be like her favorite superhero Wonder Woman. "When I was a kid I ate, breathed, and slept comic books. I wanted to be a superhero, so this book is for all those kid heroes out there. Be brave, be strong, and get out there!" says author Dahl.
The book will release on June 1st, right in time for Wonder Woman day, and you can find the official description below. More images can be found in the gallery.

Follow along as she demonstrates her greatest superpower (sharing), overcomes her worst fear (the playground),and conquers her archenemy (the spelling test).With courage, kindness, and other heroic traits of DC Comics' Wonder Woman, she'll turn a difficult school day into an AMAZING ADVENTURE! Along with Omar Lozano's bright, bold illustrations, bestselling author Michael Dahl (Bedtime for Batman and Good Morning, Superman) delivers an imaginative read-aloud for your littlest super heroes.

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins.

Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
