Gently Bentley Synopsis

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!
