Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS - These small, easy-to-handle picture books feature a black bunny wearing striped overalls and his stuffed-toy sidekick, Flop. In the first title, the energetic duo pack items for an outdoor picnic, which eventually gets rained out. In the second, they turn on a music player and experiment with makeshift instruments such as keys that go "jingle jing." After Bing inadvertently smashes the music player, the friends resort to singing instead. Visually, these titles are invigorating. Bright colors, white backgrounds, and black text are combined for dynamic effect. The typeface changes in size, style, and boldness, and isn't always square on the page. Unfortunately, both story lines are marginal and use repetitive phrasing. The books end with similar phrases, "Go Picnic. It's a Bing Thing" and "Making music. It's a Bing Thing," causing readers to wonder what exactly a Bing Thing is. This gimmick seems more of a bid to attract a franchise than an integral part of the tales. Ultimately, these offerings are all about style with too little substance. - Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI

From Booklist

PreS. The Bing franchise continues, targeting the same audience as Max and Ruby, Maisy, and their ilk, with another volume in the series' signature, unjacketed format, which combines the durability of a board book with the physical appearance of a picture book. Like all titles in the series, this begins with hearty hellos for main characters Bing the bunny and his forbearing stuffed pal, Flop, who are planning an afternoon picnic. They debate options for plausible spots in terms that kids will appreciate (the town square has "too much dog poo," says Bing) and pack a blanket, snacks, and other things they might need. Then a drenching rainfall scuttles their plans. That's OK; an indoor banquet is a fun "Bing Thing," too. Set forth in a shorthand grammar borrowed straight from newly verbal children, this series' stripped-down tales of creative problem solving will easily involve preschoolers, as will the artwork's crisp forms and glossy sherbet colors. Make Music, about Bing's enthusiasm for "going bongo" (drumming), is also now available. Jennifer Mattson

We received our first BING book when my son turned 2. He loved it so much that I immediately hopped on Amazon to try to get all that were available. Now my son is 4, and he still loves hearing the BING stories, as I read them to his 2 year old sister. BING makes our whole family smile. Thank you Mr. Dewan for books that are funny, silly, colorful, and truly a breath of fresh air.

I wish Bing were as popular in America as Barney is. These books are a hoot and my son just can't get enough of them. I checked all 8 out from the library and had to end up buying them.

Bing is a bunny who interacts with his stuffed animal Flop. The books show Bing learning colors, foods, potty training, etc., all in the course of a day.

Adults will enjoy the '60s vibe of the cars, houses and furniture in the books.

Maybe an animated Bing show in America will make these books as popular as they deserve to be.

The wonderful, consistant message of Bing books is that when something goes wrong, or isn't quite what you had hoped, there's always a way to regroup and turn those lemons into lemonade. Imagine, for instance, you've packed everything you need for a fantastic picnic and it starts to rain...

"It's no big thing," as Bing and Flop say, is a great mantra for the sensitive toddler.
