Benjamin Bear does everything in his own funny way, whether it's trying to walk on water, ride a square bicycle or go on an undersea adventure with only a fishbowl for a helmet. In this series of one page, gag filled comic strips, starring a very loopy bear, Philippe Coudray creates a zany world that makes kids think and solve puzzles, drawing all readers into the game.

My 4 yr old and 6 yr old thought this book was hilarious. Benjamin Bear does some crazy things!

Each page is one cartoon, with a visual gag playing off the short dialogue. It’s more like reading cartoons in the newspaper than reading a story. Go slow with younger children, because they’ll need time to process the visuals and combine them with the wordplay. Once they start to catch on, it’s a lot of fun.

Unfortunately, the next volume we read, Benjamin Bear in Fuzzy Thinking, contains some pages where one character hurts another on purpose to make the joke work. A big departure from this one, and no thanks.
