A Real Stretch by Carla Jablonski - OPTIONAL

Jablonski, Carla A Real Stretch: An Elastigirl Prequel Story, 240 pages. Disney Press, 2018.  $11. 

Content: Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: G. 
Elastigirl likes to work on her own as a Super in Municiberg.  She doesn’t need much praise, so when the Super Agency holds a special awards ceremony for all the Supers, Elastigirl is a bit concerned and annoyed.  Her concern is that during the Supers’ ceremony, a villain will pick that opportune time to wreck havoc.  Her annoyance is all the cocky Supers who think they deserve the awards.  As a side story, Elastigirl is also getting to know Mr. Incredible better. 
I love the Disney movie The Incredibles, so I was excited to read this prequel.  I think I would rather watch a movie about Elastigirl than read a novel because as the action is being described it’s not as entertaining as watching it.  Also, the book portrayed Elastigirl as kind of boring and annoyed with everyone which isn’t how I picture her at all.  Overall, I think the reading level for this book is upper elementary, but nobody is going to read a book this long when they could just watch the upcoming movie and enjoy it more.  Great cover though-which makes me excited for Incredibles 2.
