Reviews - What do customers think about Benny's Had Enough!?
We all feel like Benny sometimes Sep 12, 2007
Benny just doesn't want to do what he is told. He is one grumpy little piglet. But, during his foray into the outside world, he realizes what a great life he has at home with his Mama. Very fun book in every way. I love too how it validates feeling grumpy sometimes. Fun references for the adults reading it aloud too.
"Oh, Benny" Mar 3, 2001
Benny's not the only one getting angry in this book, Mama is just as frustrated as all her cleaning is being sabotaged by uncooperative Benny. Benny has had enough when Mama tries to wash Little Piggy and declares "I can't live here" as he walks out the door with Little Piggy in tow. I love Benny's facial expressions of mad, happy, mischevious and finally happy as he returns home after an adventure that ends up with a clean Little Piggy.
Can't Get Enough! Dec 2, 2000
This is my new favorite book. I read this to a group of preschoolers and their parents, and the adults liked it as much as the kids. It's wonderful to see a character in a picture book get frustrated and really mad! But the book is also sweet and very funny in a modern, quirky way.
Benny's had enough Apr 6, 2000
Benny's had enough is a wonderful book about a litle pig who doesn't want to cooperate with his mama while she is cleaning. Finally, Benny decides he's had enough. He and his dirty side-kick, Little Piggy, go out to find a new place to live. Benny realizes life on his own isn't as wonderful as he thought. My 2 year old daughter LOVES this book. (I love this book!) She relates to Benny and Little Piggy and the trials of having to clean up. The pictures are so good you can "see" what's going through Benny's head. Especially realistic is the look on Benny's face when he decides he just has to have a roll in a mudhole. Most parents can relate to trying to clean up after a little one and the struggle to clean a dirty lovey drug around by their child. Mama's response when she sees Benny returning and Little Piggy cleaned is upbeat and positive.
