The story starts when BEnny and Babe start a bait selling business, which quickly involves other Irish locals. This leds to many adventures, such as scuba diving in a creek, dodgin dead cats, acting in vampire plays and throwing toys out windows. In the end, Benny has choose between his best friend or money.
The story isn't just about the two adventurous teenagers, it is also about them growing up and dealing with teenage problems (i.e. having dead cats thrown at them and have to kiss in a play).
Not only is the plot well written and the characters developed and are believable, but it is also the funniest book I have ever read. Jokes are on every page referrring to songs and events to more modern ones. This makes it enjoyable for people of all ages. A great read!

Colfer uses a very fun writing style that can be described as tongue in cheek at times. Although the main character is 13, Benny and Babe can appeal to older audiences because of the humor and writing style included. Themes include, coming of age, friends, entrepreneurship, juvenile delinquency, alcoholism, and responsibility. Colfer touches on all of these themes in a tactful and very realistic way, bringing a sense of truth to the story. Benny and Babe, is an excellent book that is definitely worth the read.
