So I need a climbing rope,
a cape, skis,
a special superhero suit,
some really big glasses.
Hello. I'm Jonas and I was just reading in this book
what equipment I need to be a superhero.
Everything makes sense, even the superhero suit,
but I'm just not sure about these glasses.
Apparently, all the really cool superheroes have them.
There's a superhero in tonight's story.
It's by Anne Cottringer and Alex T Smith
and it's called Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero.
By day, Eliot is quiet.
He reads books, he feeds his goldfish.
He watches Mr Smith wash his car.
"Eliot is such a quiet little thing," say all the grown-ups.
Tick, tock. Tick, tock. Bong!
But when the clock strikes midnight, Eliot is a superhero.
He hangs out of helicopters, skis down glaciers,
returns teddies to babies. Sometimes the Mayor needs Eliot's help.
"The lions have escaped and are rampaging through the streets!"
But luckily, Eliot is an expert lion tamer.
He leaps from his bedroom window, races through the crowds
and comes face to face with lions.
He stares into the eyes of the roaring beasts.
One by one, Eliot stops them in their tracks.
He leads the lions back to the zoo as the crowds cheer.
Sometimes, the coastguard call on his services.
"Help!" they shout. "A ship is about to crash onto the rocks!"
Luckily, Eliot is a champion swimmer.
He dives into waves, grabs the anchor and tows the ship to safety
as the sailors shout, "Hurrah!"
Sometimes the Queen requires his assistance.
"A criminal mastermind has stolen the royal jewels,"
announces the royal butler. Luckily, Eliot is an excellent sleuth.
He sneaks into the criminal mastermind's hideout,
cracks the code, opens the safe
and returns the jewels to the grateful Queen.
Eliot receives an urgent message
from the world's most important scientists.
"A gigantic meteor is heading this way!
"It's going to smash into Earth!"
This is Eliot's most important mission ever.
But luckily, Eliot has built a meteor-busting rocket launcher
for such occasions.
Unluckily, it's hidden in a deep cave in the mountains of Tibet.
The only way to get there before the meteor strikes is by supersonic jet.
Luckily, Eliot is a skilled jet pilot.
Eliot sets off.
Over the Alps, over the Caspian Sea.
Across the Himalayas.
Uh-oh, clouds are forming in the mountains.
Eliot can barely see.
A snow-capped peak flashes past the window.
Another looms straight ahead. Eliot swerves just in time!
To reach the cave, he must land on the shortest,
most dangerous runway in the world. He grips his controls.
The wheels bump the ground. Screech!
Eliot skids to a halt!
The sky is blazing with the light of the meteor.
Closer it comes. Eliot can see the entrance to the cave above him.
Luckily, Eliot is an experienced mountaineer.
He scrambles up the cliff and into the cave.
Eliot swings the rocket launcher towards the sky.
He aims, holds his breath, waits until the right moment.
He fires - kapow!
Eliot saves the world from destruction. Hurrah!
Phew! That was close.
The Queen gives Eliot an award for his courage.
The Earth trembles with deafening applause.
But being a midnight superhero is very tiring.
And it doesn't leave Eliot with much energy.
So by day,
Eliot is quiet.
And that story was called Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero.
I should get some sleep in case I have a midnight superhero adventure.
And it's time for you to go to bed, too.
I'll see you soon for another story.
Hmm. I wonder how Eliot wakes himself up.
Maybe I should set my alarm clock.
