This book is about benny and penny, who just got a new neighbor. They were being nosey about who their neighbor was and seemed to have gotten themselves into some trouble.

The book depicts two mice deal with the relationship with their neighbor kid. At the beginning, they mistakenly thought the kids steal their pail and almost have a fight with the kid. Finally, they realized that it is a mistake and get along well with the kid. The characters in the story are all animals, which makes it become a fantasy story. Children can learn how to build friendship with each other by reading this story. ( )

In this book, Benny and Penny find out that they have a new next door neighbor. As they play in their backyard, they play and talk about who their neighbor could be. Benny can't find his pail and they believe it is in the neighbor's backyard so Benny and Penny get into the neighbor's backyard (which was a big no-no) and see the new kid's footprints. They believed the new kid might be a monster but eventually found out that the new neighbor is actually very kind and she had not actually taken Benny's bucket. ( )

This is a great beginner graphic novel. It's also very funny and kids will be engaged and identify with Benny and Penny's sibling relationship. This book could be use to teach what the right thing is to do if you accidentally take something that is not yours. It's one in a series that will surely delight any reader.

As far as the story goes, this book is not my favorite, nor the most engaging for young students. Yet, I think it would work as a mentor text to introduce students to books with dialogue and text bubbles included as a text feature. ( )

The drawings are simply lovely, beautiful to get lost in, and softly colored. They have a good sense of both action, capturing just the right moment, and character.
