Praise For Benjamin Bear in Bright Ideas!

The clever bear and his assorted crew of animal pals from Benjamin Bear in Fuzzy Thinking (2011) return for another collection of single-page strips, each one a marvel of economy in setup, delivery, and payoff...Honing a well-rounded sense of humor may be just as important as any other aspect of childhood learning, and you’ll find no finer choice for that than the ingenious exploits of this very clever bear.
—Booklist (starred review)

This book rewards what six-year-olds are already good at (scrutiny), encourages a new skill (reading), and enlarges the imagination (heaven).
—The Horn Book (starred review)

Kids will laugh out loud at Benjamin as he solves problems in zany, often misguided, ways. ... A funny, smart little book that is definitely interesting enough to hold the attention of reluctant readers.
