Benny is going out. He is tired of hanging around inside. Benny’s little brother is going out, too. He’s also sick of hanging around inside. “Stay away from the mudhole,” says Benny’s mama. “Oink, oink,” says Benny. Then Benny and his little brother head straight for the mudhole.

Witty, expressive art and a simple text make this a delightful addition to Barbro Lindgren and Olof Landström’s award-winning Benny books.

About the Author:

BARBRO LINDGREN, author of Benny and the Binky and Benny’s Had Enough!, both of which appeared on Fanfare, The Horn Book’s Honor List, is one of Sweden’s best-known children’s book authors. OLOF LANDSTRÖM, together with his wife, Lena, has written and illustrated numerous books, including the Will books, the Boo and Baa books, and Four Hens and a Rooster, a Washington Post Best Book of the Year. Both author and illustrator live in Stockholm, Sweden.

Review:

"With a palette as suitably brown and earthy as the sticks and potatoes that constitute Benny's favorite toys, Landstrom's cartoon illustrations revel in the free-spirited joy of the pig brothers as they sprint around the mudhole with other children. . . . Lindgren comically portrays Benny's reaction, showing him flinging into the mudhole on purpose so that, like his brother, he can be rescued and comforted by their friend." — The Horn Book "The indefatigable pig is back for his third adventure. . . . Lindgren tells the story with spare text and understated humor, and the simple illustrations are packed with personality. It is amazing how much emotion Landstrom can express just through the characters' eyes." —School Library Journal "Brisk and engaging" —Kirkus Reviews "This is another delightful story about sibling love and rivalry. . . . Preschoolers respond to the wry adventure, the envy, and cozy affection." —Booklist "Benny remains a boon companion for little ones, who will recognize the joy of forbidden tomfoolery with friends." —Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
