Recently, I shared a book review for Velma Gratch and the Way Cool Butterfly. Now it is the boys’ turn! Here is another great children’s book featuring a bespectacled main character. The book is not about glasses at all, but about a fun and surprising super hero. The book is titled Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero, written by Anne Cottringer.
Eliot Jones is a quiet boy. He does not make much noise throughout the day. But by night, when the clock strikes midnight, Eliot is a superhero! He scales mountains, hangs from helicopters, and helps the world to fight crime and control other dangerous situations.
This book is fun and exciting – I have read it to my 4-year old Amelia many times already. The story includes grown-up phrases like “criminal mastermind” and “meteor-busting rocket launcher”, which she found hilarious. Kids love big words!
Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero is available via both Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.
