Barnaby Bennett - Hannah Rainforth

Big brother moaned.  Sissy Girl mumbled.  Dad muttered on and Mom, well, she grumbled.  But Barnaby said, "I'm Barnaby Bennett.  I only wear red."  (From back of book - Image from barnesandnoble.com - Book given free for an honest review.)

My Review:  Barnaby Bennett is stinkin’ adorable.  He’s also rather determined, and will only wear the color red despite the pleadings of his parents.  Since red clothes are in limited supply at the Bennett house, Barnaby soon becomes quite dirty…and stinky.   Will his parents be able to change his mind, broaden his wardrobe, and banish the stench?  Read it and see!

Some books come and go and our house, but Barnaby Bennett is staying on our bookshelves.  It’s alliterative, rhyming prose, colorful illustrations, and varied fonts make it fabulous for little readers – all three of mine adored it. 

My Rating: 4 Stars.

Sum it up:  Super cute.
