Written by French artist, Philippe Coudray, BENJAMIN BEAR IN FUZZY THINKING is a collection of comic strips aimed at children that follows the misadventures of Benjamin Bear and his unnamed rabbit friend. Even though Benjamin isn't supposed to be a role model, he's clearly a character created for children. For instance, in one page Benjamin paints a picture of a cow. The picture is horrible and the cow laughs because it's so bad. Then Benjamin beats her up and she looks exactly like his painting of her. I don't find that gag funny, but I know children do. My favorite strip in the collection is when Benjamin takes his pet fish and bird on a trip undersea (the fish ends up in the bird cage and the bird is kept in the fishbowl while underwater). BENJAMIN BEAR IN FUZZY THINKING isn't a very long book, but it is entertaining. The illustrations are rather simple and enduring. Recommended for children from 1st-4th grades.
