DK Superfan of the Month: Mr. Flip

DK Superfan of the Month: Mr. Flip

Meet our first DK Superfan of the Month, Benjamin "Mr. Flip" Filipowicz!

Age: 27

Tell us why you should be “DK Superfan of the Month”?

I use my DK Batman Character Encyclopedia on a daily basis! It is part of my always-there group of sources I use whenever I need to defend a stance or opinion. DK books have always played that kind of role for me. When I went to the library as a child, I always got a fiction novel and a new DK book on some topic I was interested in. When I taught 2nd grade, I used many DK books for project and experiment ideas. I love DK!

What is your favorite book?

How could I choose?! I love books--all books! I love things like The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Hunger Games. I also love classics like Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World, and Siddhartha.

Who is your favorite character in the pop culture universe and why?

Batman. I love superheroes and adventure heroes (especially ones played by Harrison Ford ;)), but Batman has been my favorite for as long as I can remember and back even further than that. There are pictures of me playing with Batman toys, wearing a cape and mask at two. As a 7th grade English teacher, Batman figures prominently into my classroom and teaching. My room is decorated with Batman quotes and Batman grammar memes. I use Batman in as many examples as I can. Whenever I model an assignment, Batman is featured. I dress up as Batman whenever the opportunity presents itself. They say every teacher has a thing--some do apples, some do frogs or owls... I have Batman. My students refer to me as "Batflip" often in writing.
