Children's LiteratureWhat a perfect present—Oliver gets a "Mighty Pig" cape. He suddenly feels like a real superhero. He can rescue people (his stuffed animals) from a major car wreck, a rocket ship on a collision course with the earth and can defeat the bad guys trying to take over the town. His imagination knows no bounds, but as much as he tries he just cannot get the knack of flying. All seems to be going well until he decides that he is much to busy to undertake the chores his mother has requested, but clever Mom—she does not get angry but finds a way to engage the superhero in the tasks. The only sad day that Oliver faces is when his wonderful cape has to be washed and dried. Then it seems like it will take forever and while he waits he feels like all of his superpowers have vanished. It is a happy moment, indeed, when he gets his cape back and is once again "Mighty Pig." A Dial "Easy-To-Read" Level 2 book which features short sentences and simple dialogue. 2004, Dial/Penguin, Ages 5 to 7.
