Benny's Brigade

Foreword Review — Fall 2012

Two sisters find a wiggling nut on their way to school and crack it open to reveal a miniature walrus! Disbelief is followed by acceptance and admiration, and a plan is made to return Benny to the sea, where he belongs. Lessons in difference and ingenuity abound. This eccentric, beautifully illustrated story could have been created by a child—quite a compliment. Ages four and up.
