Who Chains You Books is pleased to announce the release of Brave Benny, out now from author Heather Leughmyer and illustrator April Pedersen.
Benny the bat always did what was right; hiding during the day and hunting at night. His bed was a tree and he slept upside down, in a quaint little forest just outside of town.
Each night at dusk he’d stretch and he’d yawn, then drop out of bed, and be home before dawn. By daybreak the bats would be sleeping away, but bored little Benny just wanted to play.
He wished to discover the world in the light; he was tired of darkness, fed up with the night. Then one dewy morning, he passed by his tree; he was nervous, but eager, about what he would see…
What will Brave Benny discover on his adventure? Find out in this wonderfully illustrated, rhyming children’s book, a perfect bedtime story for ages 4 and up, and independent readers age 7 and up. Includes activities for kids, and some good batty questions and answers, too!
