Review by: William Woodall on Aug. 11, 2012 :
I enjoyed this story very much, and finished it in one sitting. It reminded me a little bit of Tom Sawyer, or maybe The Sugar Creek Gang. I think it would be something especially suitable for a middle-grader between about ten and twelve years old. The story is mostly simple and straightforward, without many complexities, which is appropriate for that age group. I liked the cougar-face chapter headings; that was an especially nice touch. I also liked that it had a happy and satisfying ending.

I think Jeremy was actually my favorite character, maybe because he seemed the most complex and interesting, and changed the most over the course of the book.

There were a few things I thought could have been improved, of course, but they were minor. I would have liked to see a bit more action at times, and perhaps a little less description, especially near the beginning of the book, and also I thought certain characters like the boatman on the river used a little too much dialect. But as I said, those were minor things and on the whole I really enjoyed the story very much.

I would recommend this series to anyone who is looking for a Christian adventure series for children.

Review by: Emmy Swain on Jan. 22, 2012 :
Benny and the Bank Robber was shared with me by the author, Mary Findley. It is a good book for children, as there are lessons about life, taught in this historic adventure. It is interesting to go back in time and let your imagination take over, to a time where when things were simple. Still, some things never change.
