Austin. Una y otra vez, oirás a Austin preguntar, “¿Dónde está Mi Bennie?”
“Where is my Bennie?” This is a young boy’s first question when he awakes from a nap to discover one of his
most prized possessions missing: his stuffed blue bunny, Bennie. Bennie had been in his arms when Austin fell
asleep – he can’t sleep without him – but is now nowhere to be found.
With beautiful color illustrations and a fun, engaging story, Where is My Bennie? follows Austin and his
grandpa as they try to solve the mystery of the missing bunny. Children will delight in knowing all along that
while Austin was napping, his grandma and grandpa’s Brittany spaniel, Hunter, slipped into his room and
snatched Bennie. Austin and Grandpa search everywhere. They find lots of missing things – Grandma’s
slipper, Grandpa’s cup, Hunter’s bone – but no Bennie.
Fortunately, Grandma arrives back from her trip to town just in time. She knows Hunter’s secret hiding
places and, noticing that he looks a little guilty, decides to investigate his kennel. Sure enough, Grandma pulls
Bennie from the stuffed-animal-loving dog’s cage. His ear is torn, but he is otherwise unscathed, and Grandpa,
Grandma, Austin and Bennie all share a big group hug.
Every small child has a favorite toy and can easily imagine how they would feel if it were lost. This personal
relationship with the subject matter, along with the subtle mystery of Austin’s missing toy,
Hunter’s visible involvement and the ultimately happy ending, makes "Where is My Bennie?" a delightful
bedtime story for parents or grandparents to read to their children age 2-8.
