Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
"Eliot is such a quiet little thing," say all the grownups. So begins the adventure of Eliot Jones, a mild-mannered preschooler who morphs into an amazing superhero when the clock strikes midnight. It is a familiar tale, but kids will enjoy the way the story is told here. Elliot's challenge is no small mission: a gigantic meteor is on a disastrous course, threatening to smash the earth into a billion bits. Luckily, Eliot had already built a "meteor-busting rocket launcher" for just such an occasion. Unluckily, it is hidden in a spot not easy to get to…but luckily, Eliot is a supersonic jet pilot. The adventure races to its conclusion using the repetitive luckily/unluckily phrasing (a tried-and-true interactive storytelling device). The quirky illustrations invite interaction, too: maps, diagrams, and lots of funny background action just beg kids to stop, linger and look closely at each double-page spread of this oversized paperback picture book. Does Eliot save the world from certain destruction? I will not spoil the surprise…let us just say that the next morning, Eliot is very tired from his night of superhero work; and that may explain why, by day, Eliot is a very, very "quiet little thing." Reviewer: Dianne Ochiltree
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—By day, Eliot is a quiet boy who likes to read, but when the clock strikes midnight, he becomes a superhero. The youngster, who sports curly orange hair, large round glasses, and a green cape and matching boots, returns teddy bears to babies, rescues his town from rampaging lions, and stops a ship from crashing onto the rocks. Now he embarks on his "most dangerous mission ever"—saving Earth from a gigantic meteor. Eliot's adventures are fast-paced and exciting. A variety of fonts are used, making the text feel integrated into the action-packed illustrations. Done in vibrant pastel hues, the collage-style spreads match the tone of each adventure and include many details that youngsters will enjoy exploring. A worthy addition to kids-as-superheroes collections.—Laura Stanfield, Campbell County Public Library, Ft. Thomas, KY
