Donald & Benoit Summary


Donald & Benoit by John Patrick Byrne

A whimsical and magical tale of friendship is brought to vivid life by the award-winning and heralded Scottish artist and playwright. Benoit lives a life of mundane ordinariness in his seaside town. What could ever liven his droll existence? Enter Donald, the small and mischievous black kitten. While waiting for Benoit's father to return from his fishing trip, this team makes life more interesting for everyone around them. This odd couple shakes things up by raiding the library, taking drum lessons, and befriending the coolest troupe of dancing dogs this side of Glasgow. Filled with all the fun and fancy of a classic European tale, readers of all ages will be enchanted by Byrne's lyrical prose and magical drawings of the sleepy seaside town turned upside down by the rambunctious duo.

Donald & Benoit Reviews


"The scale and ambition of the artwork in this debut by a Scottish painter set it apart immediately, and the modest solve-a-problem plot is transformed by a captivating narrative voice into rattling good entertainment.... With a nod to early cubism, Byrne paints bulky, curvy figures whose swoops and angles have the rhythmic energy of Donald's drums; their impact is heightened by the book's large trim size. Dreamy, melancholy hand-lettering and graceful design add even more charm." Publishers Weekly
