An irresistible follow-up to Benny’s Had Enough!
One morning Benny awakens to find a bassinet standing next to him. Finally, Benny has a brother! All Benny’s new sibling does is scream and scream – until his mother gives him a binky. Benny wants a binky, too, but his mother says he’s too old for one. And Benny’s brother isn’t willing to share. Benny soon grows tired of his new brother – he’d rather have the binky. So when his mother isn’t looking, Benny runs away with the binky. He feels triumphant, until he meets up with some porcine bullies. Fortunately, he is rescued, and after running all the way home, Benny restores the binky to its rightful owner.
Olof Landström’s hilarious illustrations capture the frustrations and joys of having a new sibling.

After waking one morning to find a new baby brother in a basket by his bed, toddler pig Benny is thrilled--for about 15 seconds. Long enough for the baby to start squalling and their mother to give him a binky. "I want a binky, too," says a disillusioned Benny. But apparently he's too big for a binky. Benny, whose MO is to hit the highway when things don't go his way (Benny's Had Enough), manages to exchange his Little Piggy doll for his brother's binky, and takes off for an afternoon of peace, quiet, and binky-sucking. Unfortunately, it's not only his mother who thinks he's too old for a binky.
Barbro Lindgren and Olof Landström (Boo and Baa in the Woods) make an unbeatable creative team. Benny's ingenuous expressions even as he misbehaves, and his pure joy when he finally gets his first taste of the coveted binky, are simply priceless, as is Lindgren's understated narrative: "He is happy. The binky is good." We will follow Lindgren and Landström to the ends of the earth for the chance to read any of their books. (Ages 2 to 6) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
