Benjamin and Bumper to the Rescue by bestselling author Molly Coxe is a truly unique picture book that delivers a pint sized view of a larger than life adventure.  Photographs of incredibly detailed dioramas and a story chock-full of ingenious plans, humorous situations and surprising twists make this endearing tale of Benjamin, a fuzzy mouse and Bumper, his true-blue elephant friend, an instant bedtime classic.

Skillfully photographed by Olivier Toppin, Coxe’s uncommonly endearing felted wool characters are wonderfully alive, and her carefully gathered props of buttons, antique toys and cracked dishes are perfect for kids who delight in searching the illustrations for all of the tiny details that reveal themselves at the turn of every page.  

This story is sure to inspire young artists to create their own little imaginary shoe-box-sized worlds.  A very fun homeschool project!  Take a “Squeak Peak” of Benjamin and Bumper to the Rescue.
