Ben is a very interesting boy with a very big imagination, and he is probably exactly like someone you know. The good thing about Ben is he is the idea man of tomorrow, the guy with all the original thoughts; and being Ben is a very good thing for Ben to be! Penelope Dyan is a former K-12 teacher, published in 'The Kindergartner,' as well as in 'Instructor Magazine' and in 'Humpty Dumpty' children's magazine, and she is an award winning author. (She knows what it means to be a kid like Ben, because she was a kid like Ben; and her younger brother was exactly like Ben!) And once again, she has put all her expertise, love and knowledge of children to work in this delightful book of poetry and illustrations. Dyan is the author of 'Surfer Girl,' the first book in a teen book series about a girl named Summer who serves the waves of the ocean and life as she searches for her legacy. "Surfer Girl" was the winner of best teen book at both the 2008 New York Book Festival and the 2008 Hollywood Book Festival and is also recognized by Girls Voices In Literature Database, Miami University, Florida.
