Benjamin and the Pillow Saga

Author: Poulin, Stephane Set In . . .
 North America, Canada, Quebec
Genre: Children's
Time Frame: 20th Century
Published: 1989
Description:

Deep, rich illustrations and a witty text tell the story of Benjamin, a happy man who lives with his parents, seldom speaks, and always hums.

"…one of the most original and different books to come along this year (or any year)." - The Reading Edge

"The rich, witty drawings in this book have an almost European, sometimes dark, flavour to them, bringing to mind some fairytale illustrations of yesteryear." - Edmonton Sun

"Stéphane Poulin's gently humourous, offbeat fable springs vividly to life through his superb illustrations. Poulin's witty paintings are richly textured and deeply tinted--gloriously different from the bright, cartoony pictures we often see in children's books." - Today's Parent

"Well-wrought canvasses combine folksiness and pizzazz, and lots of the architectural interest at which Poulin is so adept..." - In Search of Canadian Materials

Winner of the Governor General's Award for illustration.
