Mona and Joey, game playing twins, get a big surprise when their mailman, Mr. Mojoski retires. It turns out he is really their favorite superhero, Mighty Mojo, with arms that can stretch over half a block and magnetic boots. Mojo is headed for Florida and gives Mona and Joey his suit containing magic powers. In a 'disagreement' over which of them gets the suit, it is ripped and each are left with only half of it. When the villain, Saw Jaw, threatens to destroy everyone's favorite hippo float at a parade, Mo(na) and Jo(ey) must learn to work together to battle the evil deed and save the day. Colorful illustrations and a lesson in cooperation make this a great read for younger readers.
