Benjamin Bear walks on water, rides a square-wheeled bicycle, and wears a fishbowl helmet under the sea. Told in the form of one-page comic strips, each of Benjamins adventures is a hilarious gag, a puzzle, a mini physics lesson, or sometimes all three. Of the first Benjamin book, Horn Book wrote, "Original, deep-down funny . . . steeped in the rare quality of imaginative kindness." Kirkus called it, "A visually formatted joke book to inspire thinking as well as laughs."
