Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—The indefatigable pig is back for his third adventure. Benny and his younger brother are bored and decide to go to the forbidden mud hole. When the toddler is pushed into it, Benny's friend Klara comes to the rescue and comforts him. Benny feels jealous and decides to fall in, too. Now both boys are muddy and fear their mother's wrath. They try hiding among the pines until a rainstorm washes away the evidence of their guilt. As in Benny's Had Enough (1999) and Benny and the Binky (2002, both R & S), Lindgren shows a clear insight into sibling relations. The confederacy between the brothers balances their rivalry. Lindgren tells the story with spare text and understated humor, and the simple illustrations are packed with personality. It is amazing how much emotion Landström can express just through the characters' eyes.—Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT

From Booklist

Like Benny and the Binky (2002), this is another delightful story about sibling love and rivalry. Benny the pig and his toddler brother go outdoors to have some fun. Though Mama warns them to stay away from the mudhole, they head straight for it. When bullies push Benny’s brother in the muck, lovely Klara rescues him and cuddles him close. That makes Benny jealous, so he “falls” into the mudhole, too. Then they have to go home; fortunately for the very dirty pigs, it rains. Preschoolers respond to the wry adventure, the envy, and cozy affection. Preschool. --Hazel Rochman

Format: Hardcover
This is a cute little picture book that is perfect for reading-aloud. The antics of a pair of sibling pigs will have you and your little one grinning. Benny and his little brother get bored staying inside their house and go out to play with a warning from mom not to play in the mudhole. Guess what? That's precisely where they head to and meet up with their friends. Of course by the end of the day the little piggies will have had lots of fun and even some anxious moments, but all ends well. A delightful book for young ones.

As a children's librarian I have encountered many children's books.
"Oink, Oink, Benny" is one of those I keep coming back to. The book
is funny, and the drawings are worthy on thier own as some of the best
of it's kind for conveying the story. The book is great to read aloud and
children just enjoy it.

A sweet story about Benny and his little brother playing outdoors. The pictures are wonderful. My 3 year old loves it and makes funny references to what he has done together with his younger brother while reading it.

This could be the worst children's book I have ever read. We borrowed it from the library and I was astounded at how inane it was. Avoid it at all costs.
