Description

The silly logic of a very serious bear!

Benjamin Bear does everything in his own funny way, whether it's drying dishes on a rabbit's back or throwing a ball at a friend to make him play. In this series of gags starring a very loopy bear, Philippe Coudray creates a zany world that makes kids think and solve puzzles, drawing all readers into the game.




About the Author

Philippe Coudray loves drawing comics, and his many children's books are often used in schools in his home country of France, where his work was chosen by elementary school students for the prestigious Prix des Écoles d' Angoulême. He relishes any opportunity to collaborate on children's books and comics with his twin brother, Jean-Luc, who is also a humorist. Philippe lives in Bordeaux and enjoys painting, creating stereoscopic images, and traveling each year to Canada, where he searches for Bigfoot.




Praise For Benjamin Bear in Fuzzy Thinking

The whole enterprise lies somewhere between fuzzy-wuzzy was a bear and an introduction to fuzzy logic. It is original, deep-down funny, and, most important, the adventures are steeped in the rare quality of imaginative kindness.
