The charmingly oblivious elephant Little Jumbo "saves the day" in a superhero story that s perfect for fans of Ian Falconer s Olivia
Being a superhero isn t easy. All Little Jumbo wants to do is fight crime and defend the weak, by doing things like halting traffic for snails to cross the street and stopping Dad from sneaking cookies. It s not his fault grown-ups don t appreciate his heroic deeds Luckily, Little Jumbo doesn't give up easily. He even powerfully resists cake (his greatest weakness ) to help a new friend in need
"Super Jumbo" is the hilariously sweet companion to Fred Koehler s standout debut, "How to Cheer Up Dad," which received three starred reviews."
