The PATCHES OF POWER and the BUTTONS OF BRAVENESS lead to super strength -- and super trouble! -- in this triumph of the small.

Every night, Timothy tries to make himself stronger. He drinks milk. He exercises. He thinks STRONG thoughts ... all with the help of his faithful stuffed monkey.
Then his mother fixes up his holey, missing-button favorite pajamas, and suddenly Timothy has super strength! He catches an elephant falling off a cliff! He rescues a princess in a tipping tower! He drags an alligator back to the zoo! But when Monkey gets trapped -- and the pajamas rip! -- Timothy finds his real power in his friends.
Sweetly funny, utterly charming, this is the debut of a brilliant new author-illustrator.
