Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero by Anne Cottringer
My son loves this book by Anne Cottringer, who is from Niagara Falls, Ontario. Eliot Jones is one very quiet little boy by day, but at night he transforms into one incredible superhero. It's his job, and his job alone, to save the earth from an approaching meteor. He travels all over the world during the night doing amazing feats. No wonder he's so tired (and quiet) during the day!Link
