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!
"Koehler's artwork continues to impress: his thick black outlines give his characters a reassuring emotional groundedness, and he finds the comic sweet spot in each composition." —Publishers Weekly
"Very funny...Pair with Ed Vere’s Max the Brave (2015) for another tale about a sweetly bumbling, well-meaning little hero." —Booklist
"Koehler's chunky, bold lines and varying perspectives are comical and lively, while the simple text offers several moments of nicely silly contrasts between the elephantine wannabe superhero's intentions and his results...Broadly entertaining." —Kirkus Reviews
"This heartwarming story is full of humor...A terrific purchase for storytime collections." —School Library Journal
