Lost and Found (A Benny and Penny Story) by Geoffrey Hayes –ADVISABLE

Hayes, Geoffrey Lost and Found (A Benny and Penny Story) EARLY READER/GRAPHIC NOVEL Toon Books, 2014. $12.95 Content: G
In this early reader, Benny has lost his favorite pirate hat. That put him in a bad mood. He and Penny go looking for it and have some adventures and some arguments but his mood only gets worse. Then the pair realize they are lost and remember some great advice from their mom!
This reminds me of old fashioned comics and this series functions as a really cute early reader introduction to graphic novels. The stories are sweet and very present an authentic brother/sister friendship. The artwork is adorable, though sometimes I wish I could turn up the light on the illustrations, as they can be a bit gloomy. A fun addition to your school library.
