Super Jumbo by Fred Koehler - ADVISABLE

Koehler, Fred   Super Jumbo  Unpaged. Dial Books for Young Readers, 2016. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK

Being a super hero is a thankless job. It is never easy, but Jumbo tirelessly helps the weak and crusades against evil (whether the recipients of his actions want his "help" or not). When he sees someone truly needing his help, he resists his greatest weakness and comes to the rescue, finding a friend in the process.

Using the same characters from How to Cheer Up Dad, Koehler offers a humorous story where the illustrations add much to the meaning of each situation. This would be a solid addition for younger readers.
