Synopsis

Gently Bentley by Ian Whybrow

Gently Bentley! Bentley was fond of his squashy caterpillar. But one day Bentley, who was a little rough, bit it and the caterpillar went bang!! Sticky and Bun, Bentley's friends, try to help him find something else to play with. Cars are fun but easy to break, tennis is hard to get the hang of, skipping is too tangly and bricks are easy to knock over. Will Bentley ever find that something else to play with!

Reviews

Perfect for a two year old who likes to crash and bang. * Gloucestershire Echo * Whybrow's text is snappy and effective, and Melling's Bentley Bear is distinctive and cuddly. It'll be a favourite forever. * Ink * A lively fun book about playing and sharing * Carousel * Gently Bentley is a gem. * my BOOKS mag *
