Book Description

8 Nov 2001
As if by magic, the shopkeeper appeared. Learn the lessons of life from Mr Benn's adventures, as shown in the original TV series, as the Red Knight, Hunter, Cook, Caveman, Balloonist, Zoo-Keeper, Diver, Cowboy, Wizard, Clown, Magic Carpet, Spaceman and Pirate. Be taken back into the wonderful whimsical world of Mr Benn and his charming adventures - dressed in his distinctive black suit and bowler hat, Mr Benn first leaves the ordinary world of 52 Festive Road 'where nothing remarkable ever happened' when he receives an invitation to a fancy dress party. In the costume shop, he finds in the back lane, the mysterious shopkeeper guides him in his choice of fancy dress. After the quickest change ever, he walks through the other door and into extraordinary adventures where 'there are only two kinds of people. Those who are good and those who have yet to become good.' Mr Benn rights all wrongs before being guided home by a suspiciously familiar looking individual - the shopkeeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Benn we missed you! 12 Nov 2001
By A Customer
It takes you back! I could only remember the red knight and couldn't for the life of me name all 13 episodes (yes, there were only 13!) Just looking at the beautiful pictures by David McKee, the original illustrator and author of Mr Benn, and that jaunty theme tune starts going round and round in your head!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring back your childhood 22 Mar 2005
I loved Mr Benn as a child, yet reading this book I can now see how he helped shape me to become the person I am today! He's a lovely character who doesn't need to get in trouble or cause hassle to people to be interesting and exciting. He takes pleasure in the ordinary and has extraordinary adventures with the help of the Shopkeeper, who always appeared, "as if by magic". His ordinary world also changed a little as a result of his extraordinary adventures. A fantastic book to remind you of the ideals we would all do well to live by. Beautiful pictures by the original artist. Wonderfully nostalgic.

I bought this book as a little jokey present for my cousin ben when he turned 17, but even though it was for fun, everybody loved it and were reading all the little stories that it has. It is a very nostalgic little gift and great fun if you used to watch this as a kid!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling condition to sell a book in 5 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book from World of Books and it was in a disgraceful condition despite being marked as 'very good.' Looked like it had been in a bin. Bent pages, massive scuffing to the cover, rips on cover and all round tatty condition. Wouldn't pay 20p for it in a charity shop never mind the over 2 quid I paid. So insulted that a bookstore would sell this to anyone. Why should I waste money on ink for my printer to return? Yet, it seems I am to be forced to return this - costing me time and printer ink.
