'Incredibles 2' Book Highlights Elastic Girl Kicking Butt Before She Became A Mom

A new Incredibles 2 book shows Elastigirl “kicking butt and taking names,” so to speak, before she became a mom. The new book, titled, “A Real Stretch: An Elastigirl Prequel Story” is a 240-page chapter book, which takes place in the golden age of the Supers.

The book tells the story of Helen – or rather, Elastigrl – before she married her husband Bob and had three kids: Violet, Dashiell and Jack-Jack. The book is for readers ages 9 to 12 (although parents can pick it up and enjoy it, too) and chronicles Helen’s life as she manages to escape risky situations and outsmart the villains with the confidence and razor-sharp wit that she is known for. Readers will also get to learn how she honed her special skills as Elastigirl as a young girl and woman.

Many fans of the book love the story because it shows how Helen didn’t settle down, even after she settled down. She’s fighting crime just as much as a mom as she did before she got married and started a family. In other words, motherhood didn’t slow her down from her day job. Instead, it only made her stronger and more determined to make the world a safer place.
