horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Oink, Oink Benny
by Barbro Lindgren
Age Range: Under_5
Benny is bored of hanging around inside so he decides he’s going out and his little brother is going too.
“Stay away from the mud hole,” says Benny’s mother. “Oink, oink,” says Benny. But what does Benny do? He heads straight for the mud hole where all his friends are, especially his favourite friend Klara. When bully Rafe pushes Benny’s brother into the mud hole, Benny is envious of Klara’s solicitous response so he decides to do the same thing! Now Klara will have to rescue him too.
Cleverly composed with simple text and witty, expressive artwork from Swedish author, Barbro Lindgren, (Winner of the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award 2014), and Olof Landström who have together created the award-winning ‘Benny’ books.
