Ben Draws Trouble

Ben Draws Trouble
By Matt Davies
Roaring Brook Press, 2015. Picture Book

Ben Draws Trouble is Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Matt Davies’ follow up to the acclaimed Ben Rides On. Ben Lukin loves to draw. In fact, he loves it so much that he draws during every class, which makes them more entertaining to him. However, it also gets him into trouble. Ben is very good at drawing people so when his sketchbook goes missing Ben worries about who would see his drawings. Eventually the book ends up in the hands of his teacher, Mr. Upright. How he reacts to Ben’s drawings will bring a smile to your face. Davies’ scratchy and cartoon-like illustrations add to this simple but fun tale about a boy and his talent for drawing. Be sure to also check out Ben Lukin’s first adventure in Ben Rides On.
