Benjamin would rather read about adventures in a giant peach than eat one!

Unlike his family members who are happily munching away on scraps, Benjamin is a different kind of worm. He loves to read. Yet, all he finds are old newspapers and magazines full of tomato splotches. Not one to give up on his dreams, Benjamin sets off on a quest to find "real" books.

Witty illustrations by Uliana Barabash are a great accompaniment to this delightful story written by R.G. de Rouen.

Join Benjamin on his book-hunting adventure and watch your little ones search for Benjamin's famous signature in their books!

The perfect choice for parents, teachers, and librarians looking for:

  • Inspiring the love of reading and the value of libraries
  • Books for reluctant readers
  • Role model books for children
  • A humorous read for bedtime

BUY NOW and rekindle the joy that you had as a child of going to the library and discovering that first book!
