PreS-Gr 1-Super El is not feeling very super. He ripped his costume and needs a way to get it mended without all of the animals seeing him in his less-than-super state. The always-kind Elmer volunteers to distract the other animals while he gets it fixed. Elmer uses jokes, sticks, and bird friends to keep the elephants, lions, tigers, hippos, rabbits, crocodiles, and monkeys from noticing Super El as he slinks past them. When the two finally make their way to Aunt Zelda, readers are treated to her hard-of-hearing humor before Super El zooms off into the sky. The spreads are done in vivid colors and have everything Elmer fans have come to expect. This adorable tale shows young readers that even superheroes need help once in a while.-Kris Hickey, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH (c) Copyright 2012.
