From monkeys and mammoths to a midnight superhero, we review some great reads to get boys into books


Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero by Anne Cottringer and Alex T Smith (Scholastic, ISBN 9781407105284)

Meet Eliot – by day he’s just a normal book-reading, goldfish-feeding little boy, but when the clock strikes midnight, Eliot is a superhero! Every night Eliot is called upon to use his superpowers to carry out various life-saving and world-saving acts in his very important role. The text is simply written, taking readers through each of Eliot’s escapades, whether it is retuning lions to the zoo, reuniting the Queen with the royal jewels or his most important mission ever – tackling a gigantic meteor on a collision course with Earth. The cleverly presented text and illustrations are full of energy and detail, bringing the story to life. Labels and descriptions, along with speech bubbles, add a comic book feeling to this book that children, especially boys, will think is just super!
