Animal stories always have a strong place in my heart, so when I discovered Walt Morey's GENTLE BEN, I knew that I would adore the story. And I did. Much like Sterling North's RASCAL, GENTLE BEN captures the essence of falling in love with a wild animal, and keeping it as a pet, even when the world is against your decision. It's about the special bond that humans and animals hold with one another. Mark is a lovable character, whose small body, but strong mind, make him the ideal friend for Ben. While Ben is a character that will never be forgotten, based solely on the kindness in his heart, and his laugh-out-loud antics. A story that will stay emblazoned in your mind for years to come, and warm your heart.

It's a book about love between a little boy named Mark and a big brown bear named Ben who became true friends. It's a book about love and care for the wildlife, and also what a man can do if he don't understand or even don't like animals. It's a story which teaches us to listen sometimes to our children and not always only demand from them to act like we think it's normal, because we - grown-up people - can learn a lot from both, from our children and from animals regardless they're their pets or not.
I highly recommend to all of you to read this book. And those who already own one - take it down from the bookshelf and read it again. I think I'll do it in a while, too.
