Review of _Benny and Penny in The Big No-No_

Geoffrey Hayes' latest Benny and Penny book features the two cuddly mice siblings trying to discern the identity and nature of the new kid next door. After some misplaced notions of ownership and threat are worked out, the three become fast friends. And there's a mud fight thrown in too!

Cute, sweet, and true to the capricious nature of very young children, the Toon Books release is charming and prettily rendered. This is the type of book parents and children should enjoy together in a rocking chair and is a great text for practicing say-back comprehension after several readings.
