When Oliver gets a Mighty Pig cape for his birthday, he's thrilled. As soon as he puts it on, he imagines he has incredible superpowers. It takes his family a little longer to adjust, but soon Mother Pig has Oliver doing some rescue operations that look suspiciously similar to setting the table and emptying wastebaskets. Then one morning Oliver discovers his cape is missing!
All beginning readers who have ever wished they were superheroes will delight in the humorous antics of one very determined pig. With clever wit and simple vocabulary Jean Van Leeuwen has created another wonderful addition to her easy-to-read series, colorfully illustrated by Ann Schweninger.
