TOON Level 2
by Geoffrey Hayes
It's not even breakfast time but Benny is already in a bad mood. And when he sets out in the fog to find his missing hat, he leads himself and his sister Penny straight into... big trouble!

"With four delightful Benny and Penny titles already gallivanting around out there, Hayes’ work is a prime example of TOON’s high-level product...Hayes, as always, strikes exactly the right balance, allowing his characters to be both moody and reasonable, scared and courageous, appealing to young readers both as surrogates and role models. His art similarly hits the sweet spot dead-on, with mysterious shapes that are never too menacing, rounded and soothingly furry figures, and delicately rendered backgrounds filled with meticulous detail. His warmly classical picture-book technique never fails to be both animated and engaging as well." --Booklist
