Benjamin Bear is a funny bear that comes up with creative and funny solutions to every day problems and things that aren't necessarily problems. Very few words, great extremely entertaining premise. Read full review

Benjamin Bear is out of the box thinker that influences the reader to abstract problem solving. The comic novel is comprised of more than one brainteaser short story. The panels are clear distinguishable with black borders. The eccentric life of the Benjamin Bear appeals to the problem solving reader. The panels of the story line ranges from 3 frames to 6 frames per story. Each panel encourages the reader to contemplate the outcome of the rising climax. The context clues give aid to the reader to better predict the Benjamin Bears thinking.
