Mijo Style: Incognito Superhero


So I’ve officially stopped caring about school picture day. Does that make me a bad mom? I made my very last photo CD purchase last fall because I’d rather take them myself and save all my coins. #SophistiCheap I sort of dismissed the order deadline for spring photos, so to make up for that, Jayden and I ran outside for an impromptu photoshoot in the wind. Surely my camera added some special effects because my boy looks like a tween! I just don’t understand. How? Why? When? Sigh.

He’s wearing some of his latest big boy clothes that he won in the Polarn O. Pyret art contest. The shoes are PF Flyers that I scored from Amazon for $12. Oh and the book; Public School Superhero by James Patterson, a book that we recently received to add to our collection.

Public School Superhero tells the tale of, Kenny Wright, a good kid with a great imagination struggling in a less-than-ideal world. In his mind, he’s Stainlezz Steel, super-powered defender of the weak. In reality, he’s a chess club devotee known as a “Grandma’s Boy,” making him an easy target for bullies.

The African American middle school student wants to bring a little more Steel to the real world through his secret identity, but he is faced with challenges when peer pressure gets in the way of him recognizing his own true strengths. Through humor and sensibility, the comic illustrated novel provides a glimpse of middle school and the impact of everyday decisions.

Kenny Wright is totally incognito, disguised as an average kid. Keeping your identity a secret is a definite must for all superheroes! What might an incognito superhero look like? He might be wearing a gingham button-down, some twill pants, and sneakers. Jayden’s got the superhero in disguise look down pat!

Giveaway is open to US addresses only and ends 4/30/15. Good luck!
