About the Book:
Benny was different…
Benny was special…
Benny was a robot…
Benny had a bright red button in the middle of his tummy. On the button, written in big, bold letters were the words ‘Only Press in an Emergency’. Benny had never pressed his button but often wondered what would happen if he did get to press it… One day he found out!
One Button Benny is a story about heroes and the unlikely places you find them. With strikingly beautiful retro-style illustrations by Chloe Holwill-Hunter. This colourful, fun tale for three-to six-year-olds, sees loveable robot Benny becoming a surprising hero when the hairy, scary collectors try to take over his planet. Along with this picture book, you can download the specially-written ‘Zing Zang Zoom’ song and an audio book of the story.
