The Story of Superman, Part 1 - How Superman Came to Earth

So, interesting story (I think, anyway) about this particular book set. A long time back, I was preparing future posts for The Fortress of Solitude Trophy Room, when I came across a photo of the boxed book set you see above. Now, I had completely forgotten I had that photo, so I went straight to eBay and did a quick search, figuring I'd need to save a search on it, and wait and wait.

Didn't have to do that this time! I found a copy of this offered for sale at a pretty reasonable price, put in my bid, and a few days later, was the winner! I've read the books in this boxed set to my kids for story time a few times by now! Now, I know, I've already posted the Fisher-Price Superman book here a while ago, which covered much the same ground... but that one didn't have artwork by Ramona Fradon, for starters!

After the jump, the first book in this set, How Superman Came to Earth!

This design was on the insides of the front and back covers... don't worry, I didn't scan it for all the books in the set, just this one time!
