I love the Toon series from Candlewick Press. They are easy readers, I know. But they offer readers a rich experience nonetheless. In BENJAMIN BEAR IN FUZZY THINKING (Candlewick 2011) by Phillippe Coudray, readers will meet the lovable Benjamin Bear and his friend rabbit. Each page contains a complete story in 4-6 frames. Funny (Benjamin using his friend the rabbit to dry his dishes) and inventive (when he gets lost, Benjamin uses food to attract ants and then follows their trail out of the maze) and endearing (the scene in the grocery store), this book is sure to please early readers as much as it did this more experienced reader. <483>
