Overview


The PATCHES OF POWER and the BUTTONS OF BRAVENESS lead to super strength -- and super trouble! -- in this triumph of the small.

Every night, Timothy tries to make himself stronger. He drinks milk. He exercises. He thinks STRONG thoughts ... all with the help of his faithful stuffed monkey.
Then his mother fixes up his holey, missing-button favorite pajamas, and suddenly Timothy has super strength! He catches an elephant falling off a cliff! He rescues a princess in a tipping tower! He drags an alligator back to the zoo! But when Monkey gets trapped -- and the pajamas rip! -- Timothy finds his real power in his friends.
Sweetly funny, utterly charming, this is the debut of a brilliant new author-illustrator.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Timothy Smallbeast is a little guy who does everything in his power to get stronger. When his mother repairs his favorite pajamas with strong thread, sturdy patches, six very red buttons, and an extra secret button inside, Timothy finds he has super powers. With his faithful companion Monkey, he uses his new strength for good, saving an elephant falling from a cliff, rescuing a princess from a tower, capturing a crocodile escaping from the zoo, and helping a kitten down from a tree. When he finds a frightened and very large bear that is too tired to walk back to the deep forest, Timothy gladly carries him home. That is when disaster strikes! As he sets the bear down, Monkey is trapped beneath him and Timothy's pajamas rip and his super powers are gone. Not to fear, his rescued friends hear his cries for help and come to his aid. Delightful, full color cartoon illustrations brimming with detail extend the text of this humorous adventure with a spunky hero. Every child who has ever dreamed of being a super hero will find his role model in Timothy. A super debut picture book by a new author. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey
School Library Journal

K-Gr 2- Timothy Smallbeast longs to be big and strong, so he drinks "fortified" milk, exercises, and "thinks STRONG thoughts." However, it is only when he wears his favorite pajamas, repaired by his mother with "PATCHES of POWER and the BUTTONS of BRAVENESS," that Timothy becomes the superhero of his dreams. Using his abilities, he catches a falling elephant, carries a mountain of packages for an elderly woman, rescues a princess, rights a sinking ship, drags an alligator back to the zoo, and carries a huge bear into the "deep dark forest." When he tries to pull his sock monkey from under the sleeping bear, though, his pajamas rip and his power disappears. But never fear-all those recipients of his help now come to Timothy's aid and deliver him and his stuffed toy safely back home. The watercolor illustrations vary from small vignettes, to vertical and horizontal paneled scenes, to full pages and spreads. Especially dynamic are the depictions of tiny Timothy carrying a bear so huge that he encompasses two pages, and the close-up rip of his pajamas (you can almost hear the material tear) as he tries to pull sock monkey from under the bear's giant paw. Youngsters who long to be strong and powerful will enter into this fantasy with gusto.-Marianne Saccardi, formerly at Norwalk Community College, CT

Timothy Smallbeast wants desperately to be strong. Every evening before bed he follows a routine to make himself superhero strong: fortified cookies and milk, exercises and strong-thought meditation. All that is hard on his favorite pajamas. Mom suggests new ones, but new ones wouldn't be favorite ones. She mends his old pajamas and suddenly Timothy is superstrong. He puts his powers to good use with the help of his sock monkey, Monkey. They save an elephant lady, sailors, a princess and several others. Just before bedtime, Timothy helps a giant bear find the forest to hibernate. The bear accidentally falls asleep on Monkey and tears Timothy's pajamas. His super strength gone, Timothy doesn't know how to save Monkey. Good thing he has made plenty of new friends. Half of the team behind the surreal Adventures of a Nose (2002) has created an absolute winner. The comic-inspired thick-line illustrations are a perfect marriage of the sense of humor of Lauren Child's Charlie and Lola and Kevin Henkes's Lilly for toddler boys (and girls). (Picture book. 2-8)
