Superhero Joe by Jaqueline Preiss Weitzman
Joe use to be afraid of everything: monsters in his closet, the dark, new things, getting hurt, getting left behind, everything. Then he discovered he had the Cape of Confidence (towel), Torch of Radiance (flashlight), Shield of Invincibility (garbage can lid), etc. Now with the proper attire he is ready to take on any challenge presented at him. Illustrated similar to Cloud With A Chance of Meatballs (same illustrator) with a more "graphic novel" flare, this book is sure to be a winner with reluctant readers (especially boys due to the boy main character and topic).
