Engie Benjy and His Friends by Bridget Appleby


Engie Benjy and His Friends by Bridget Appleby

Meet Engie Benjy, the boy mechanic with blue hair. In Engie Benjy's world, almost anything can happen. Planes creep out to have parties at night, trees go leaping into the sky to play with Spaceship, and Farmer Fred's fruity fizz cloud waters the iced-lolly fields every day. This is where Engie Benjy shares his fabulous workshop with his friends Dan the Van and Jollop the Dog. Unlike many pre-school shows, Engie's world is imbued with child's logic and imagination making it off-the-wall, but also realistic.
