When it's time for Emily and Elmer's bedtime story, Dad picks up an exciting superhero tale. Following along with Emily and Elmer, readers experience the story of Townton, which is being attacked by monsters Filth and Vacuum. Steel Man swoops in to save the day, but he is quickly bested by the baddies. After Super-Flying-Through-the-Air-Very-Fast Man and Incredibly-Big-Strong-Green Man fail as well, it's time to call in Extremely Boring Man, who has the power to put everyone to sleep -- except for Emily and Elmer. This adventure-within-a-bedtime-story features the stereotypical characters and old-fashioned look of newspaper comic strips, but with a tongue-in-cheek twist.
