Brother and sister mice, Benny and Penny, spend a day arguing and playing make-believe. They cover issues that many siblings face, like getting annoyed with one another, calling each other names, and butting into each others' games, but in the end they come to appreciate each other and play nice. This graphic novel/picture book is available online with a "Read to Me" feature that allows kids ages 4-6 to read it on their own. The cartoony illustrations are done with muted, natural colors, but they spring to life on each page.

This time around I'm reviewing the first three books published in this series of graphic novels for emergent readers. The struggling reader (8yo) enjoyed the others so much we went out and bought the first three. So he has now read the entire line of Toon Books and anxiously awaits the publication of the next set.They are around 30-odd pages each and first published April 2008. This book is in the mid-range for reading level of the suggested ages, aprrox. RL 1-2. Benny and Penny have been in another book of the series and they are a fun brother and sister pairing. In this book Benny wants to play pirates and just wants Penny to leave him alone. He isn't very nice to her. But by the end he has learnt his lesson and they are friends together and Benny learns sometimes little sisters can play "boy" stuff too!

My five-year-old son and two-year-old daughter LOVE this book. They can relate to the characters and have fun reading the story. We've read it many times!
