Benji is a dog who will eat anything; from daffodils to Brussels sprouts, ice cream to avocados, sandwiches to bones! Unfortunately, Benji’s young owner isn’t quite as adventurous. Our Dog Benji tells the story of how Benji gradually inspires his child owner to try different food, and their discovery that they’re not as fussy as they thought!
We all know that kids’ tastes generally aren’t very wide-ranging. While ice cream and pizza might be devoured in the blink of an eye, the dreaded vegetables are often pushed to one side of the plate. Author Pete Carter understands this phenomenon well, as he shows in the adventures of Benji. Of course, there is one food that neither dogs or kids will touch!
With amusing antics brought to life by delightful duotone illustrations and engaging text, Our Dog Benji will delight young readers. Illustrator James Henderson also happens to be Pete Carter’s nephew, making this picture book a family affair, full of heart. The perfect book to encourage fussy eaters to try a few more vegetables!
