Deep, rich illustrations and a witty text tell the story of Benjamin, a happy man who lives with his parents, seldom speaks, and always hums.
"...one of the most original and different books to come along this year (or any year)." - The Reading Edge
"The rich, witty drawings in this book have an almost European, sometimes dark, flavour to them, bringing to mind some fairytale illustrations of yesteryear." - Edmonton Sun
"Stéphane Poulin's gently humourous, offbeat fable springs vividly to life through his superb illustrations. Poulin's witty paintings are richly textured and deeply tinted--gloriously different from the bright, cartoony pictures we often see in children's books." - Today's Parent
"Well-wrought canvasses combine folksiness and pizzazz, and lots of the architectural interest at which Poulin is so adept..." - In Search of Canadian Materials
Winner of the Governor General's Award for illustration.

Stéphane Poulin was born in Montréal in 1961. In 1984, as he was completing his studies in graphic arts at Collège Ahuntsic, he won first prize for children's illustration in the Communication-Jeunesse contest. The next year Stéphane published his first book to wide critical acclaim. His numerous prizes include the Canadian Council in 1986, the Elizabeth Cleaver Award in 1988, and The Boston Globe Award of Excellence, 1988.
Stéphane still resides in Montréal, where he divides his time between illustrating children's books and pillow fighting with his family.
