Big-Top Benn

Written by David McKee

Big-Top Benn Synopsis

Mr Benn is Back! First published forty years ago, 'Big Top Benn' is one of a series of adventures by author and illustrator David McKee that inspired the legendary TV series that made Mr Benn part of the folk memory of the nation. Mr Benn is an ordinary man who has extraordinary adventures. In this entrancing story he swaps his bowler hat and black suit for an extravagant clown costume and finds himself transported into a world of big-top tents and circus performers. Through the inimitable charm and unique style of David McKee's original artwork this enchanting book brings to a new generation the glories of a golden age of children's book illustration and story telling. Big-Top Benn, along with Counting Birds and Noisy Neighbours, are our first books on a newly dedicated paperback list for children's picture books. Produced with the same care and attention to detail as all of our books for children, we hope this series will make the innovative and creative artwork, for which Tate Publishing has become so well known, accessible to even wider audiences.
