Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero by Anne Cottringer

We love this book....and are on the hunt to find a copy as the library will soon be showing up to take this copy back!! Eliot Jones is a quiet boy....he reads, he feeds his goldfish, he watches the neighbor wash the car....BUT......AT NIGHT HE IS A SUPERHERO!!! Eliot leads a group of escaped lions back to the zoo, saves a ship from crashing into rocks, recovers stolen royal jewels, etc. No wonder he is so quiet during the day!! We are TOTALLY into the superhero idea at our house and I am avoiding some of the other, better known superheros. This is a great book because it fulfills the need for SUPERHERO-NESS while still being appropriate and more importantly NON VIOLENT for preschoolers! And and I love this book!
