    One thought on “Benjamin's Treasure”

    1. A happily married rabbit sets out for a day's fishing but is swept away by a storm and stranded on an island.This was adapted from Williams' longer story "The Adventures of Benjamin Pink by Rosemary Wells, who also added color to the original black-and-white illustrations.

    2. This is apparently adapted from Garth Williams's 1951 novel, The Adventures of Benjamin Pink. "This delightful picture book was a labor of love for illustrator Rosemary Wells (of Max board books fame), who also added color to the original black-and-white illustrations. She carefully colored each drawing using the exact paints available to Williams in the '50s, in a palette chosen from his color work in other books." We enjoyed the sweet story of Benjamin going out to fish, getting caught in a st [...]

    3. Wouldn't it be nice if there were a lovely young couple somewhere named Benjamin and Emily, and they had never heard of this book, and some auntie or granny were to give them this wonderful Benjamin and Emily Pink book?This memorable story is from The Adventures of Benjamin Pink.Rosemary Wells added watercolors to drawings by Garth Williams. What a splendid idea! In the exact colors that Williams used in the fifties.

    4. Garth Williams illustrations of (humanoid) rabbits? Check. A charming adventure story? Check.My son, seeing his namesake, immediately sat down to read it himself. However, this seems to be a read-once for him; perhaps if he were younger, he might have enjoyed it multiple times. Should play well with fans of other Garth Williams books and with Richard Scarry fans.
