Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Kids…will love [having] the little guy outwit both the humans and the other animals. Breen…offers a short, satisfying text…This funny number celebrates determination, nonconformity, and creativity. And, of course, waffles.” Booklist (starred review)
“Breen delivers a whimsical, alliterative story of animal high jinks…Benny’s outlandish plans do give way to a sly and satisfying ending…A wonderful offering for story times.” School Library Journal
“Breen’s adorable and determined woodpecker knows what he wants as surely as Willems’ Pigeon does, but Benny may be a bit smarter. His attempts (and final success) will have preschoolers giggling…Serves up fun (and likely a waffle craving).” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Guy Olivieri packs as much enthusiasm into being a woodpecker as woodpecker Benny does into his imaginative plans…Olivieri’s alliterative ‘s’ sounds have gusto…[and] Benny pulls off his most inventive plan yet—one that has break dancing, a comedy act, and fireworks.” AudioFile
