Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero

I read this book in the morning and then was interrupted. Several hours later, I am still wondering – so is this book about a superhero and his secret life or a young boy with an avid imagination? Anne Cottringer’s story, Eliot Jones Midnight Superhero, will promote a lively discussion with your students. I guarantee your reluctant readers will be wanting this book for their personal library.

Eliot is a quiet boy. He enjoys reading and playing quietly in his room. But when the clock strikes midnight, eliot morphs into a super hero. He saves the world. Adventure awaits him as he saves the world. One major crisis arises and Eliot is on the scene.

I love the ending.

But being a Midnight Superhero is very tiring. it doesn’t leave Eliot with much energy. So by day … Eliot is quiet.”

    The book/story sounds terrific; my only wish is that sometimes it should be a girl. I will share this with the teachers of the younger students, Mary Helen. Thanks!

    Love the cover – looks very cute!

  3. How cute. I haven’t heard of this one before. Now going to add it to my TBR list. And … yes. It would be nice to have more girl superheroes, too. I can’t think of anything off the top of my head and that says something. Plenty of boy ones but no girls.
