Benny and Penny in the Big No-No! (Toon Books)by Geoffrey Hayes
Synopses & Reviews
What will Benny and Penny find when they cross the line in the Big No-No? Benny's favorite pail is missing, and there are mysterious muddy footprints... In this charming whodunit, Benny and his little sister Penny team-up to investigate, braving the dangers of the new neighbor's yard, and finding something unexpected on the other side of the fence. Bestselling children's book author Geoffrey Hayes captures all the strong emotions of childhood in meticulous drawings that leap off the page. Any kid who has ever crossed the line will fall for these two little mice and their fence-hopping adventure.
"In the second comic book — style title to star brother and sister mice Benny and Penny, the fussy duo track down a mysterious 'new kid' who may have climbed over the fence into their yard and stolen Benny's pail (a 'no-no'). But when they meet the culprit (a mole in a polka-dot dress, green flippers and goggles), they re-evaluate the situation. Thought bubbles and dynamic expressions make the simple story come to life; early readers will easily identify the emotional states of the three characters and predict the playful outcomes. Ages 4 — up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
