Benjamin learns what to do when strangers pay attention to him.

PreSchool-Grade 1 Didacticism in the guise of a story without an inkling of plot. Prompted by the disappearance of Katy Cottontail, last seen talking to a stranger (and never again mentioned in the book), a police officer instructs Benjamin Rabbit's class on the dangers of strangers. On the way home, he is approached by a stranger, but he is aware of the danger and runs away. The strangers are so obviously filled with malicious intent that any child would fear them; the fact that dangerous strangers could look perfectly friendly and non-threatening is not in evidence. Some of the information is simplified to the point of being inaccurate or generalizations ("Good strangers don't ask youngsters to help them.") The illustrations are static and in some instances don't follow the text. The time is a mixed bag; Benjamin knows his area code and number but it is obvious from the automobile, dress and old-fashioned telephone that Benjamin lived long before the introduction of area codes. The pedestrian and monotonous writing, coupled with the too-sweet illustrations of animals in fancy dress and frilly bonnets make this one to forget. Softening a difficult subject through a story coating doesn't work here. Children deserve the factsstraight out and honestly. Trev Jones, "School Library Journal"
