Benny McBride had five new pennies.

"What should I buy?" he asked.

"Buy something beautiful," said his mom.

"Buy something good to eat," said his brother.

"Buy something nice to wear," said his sister.

"Woof! Woof!" said his dog.

"Meow!" said his cat.

"OK," Benny said. "I will."

So Benny McBride, with five new pennies, strolled out in the morning sun.

"Well-chosen language, cumulative refrain and judiciously placed rhymes lend the text a pleasing musicality . . . sunny and unusually textured torn- and cut-paper collages." - Publishers Weekly
