One day Benny the woodpecker awakens to the best tummy-rumbling smell ever and discovers it’s something called waffles. He must taste them!

He pecks on the door of the waffle house, but he gets the boot.

He tries to sneak in, but he gets swept away.

Each time Benny tries, he just can’t seem to get to those delicious waffles. The other forest animals laugh at him: “Woodpeckers don’t eat waffles!” they say. But Benny has a brilliant plan. . . .

Steve Breen has created a delightful picture book with pitch-perfect humor and tons of visual gags that will keep readers coming back for more!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Kids…will love [having] the little guy outwit both the humans and the other animals. Breen…offers a short, satisfying text…This funny number celebrates determination, nonconformity, and creativity. And, of course, waffles.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Breen delivers a whimsical, alliterative story of animal high jinks…Benny’s outlandish plans do give way to a sly and satisfying ending…A wonderful offering for story times.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Breen’s adorable and determined woodpecker knows what he wants as surely as Willems’ Pigeon does, but Benny may be a bit smarter. His attempts (and final success) will have preschoolers giggling…Serves up fun (and likely a waffle craving).”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Guy Olivieri packs as much enthusiasm into being a woodpecker as woodpecker Benny does into his imaginative plans…Olivieri’s alliterative ‘s’ sounds have gusto…[and] Benny pulls off his most inventive plan yet—one that has break dancing, a comedy act, and fireworks.”
