Benji is Back!

Follow the adventures of Benji and his wacky sidekick, Lizard Tongue, in this exciting novel based on the new movie!

This brand-new story was written by Benji's creator especially for the new Benji after the huggable mutt was rescued from an animal shelter in Mississippi.

The famous pup now finds himself lost and alone on the streets of a small southern town. He struggles to save his mom from a backyard puppy mill, while trying to avoid a pair of bungling dogcatchers and a goofy stray mutt who manages to demolish everything he touches. Add a caring teenage boy and a dog-sitting bird and this Benji story is hilarious, heartwarming, and full of tingling suspense.

Joe Camp, film writer and director, author, passionate speaker, and the man behind the canine superstar Benji, has become one of the nation's most-respected and inspirational voices for responsibility in the media. Camp has written, produced, and directed seven theatrical motion pictures cumulatively grossing well over the equivilennt of $600 million in today's dollars; he has authored, in addition to Benji and Me, three novels and a host of children's books, and has written, produced and/or directed four netwok prime time specials for ABC and a series for CBS. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review Text

  • By Daniel Jolley on January 3, 2004

    Allison Thomas really did a wonderful job with this novelization of Joe Camp's original screenplay of the movie Benji. Much of the magic of the greatest family film of all time is translated remarkably well into these pages. While mere words on a page can't capture the depth of emotion and intelligence Benji expressed visually in the film, the spirit, pathos, fright, wonder, and excitement of Benji's heroic adventure are all here. There is no embellishment to the story, as this is a truly faithful adaptation of what you will see in the film, but it is well worth reading. Children in particular may attain a better understanding of certain aspects of the film by reading this book or having it read to them. I should emphasize the fact that this does make a wonderful children's book; it is by no means written "down to" children at all. Benji is a gift to children (and adults) of all ages.The story itself revolves is a tale of adventure, love, friendship, sacrifice, and incredible courage, all viewed through the eyes of a very special dog . Benji has many friends all over town, but he calls home an old abandoned house that has stood vacant for at least forty years. He enjoys his independence, though, and greets each day eagerly, always heading first to the Chapman house for breakfast with his special friends Paul and Cindy. From out of the blue, though, Benji's life changes dramatically. First he meets a little white dog, a pedigreed little cutie with class and charm; it's love at first sight for Benji, and he settles into a new life, one shared with little Tiffany. Then a group of people invade his happy home, soon bringing in two kidnapped children who turn out to be Paul and Cindy Williams. Only Benji can save the children, but he will have to risk everything he values the most in order to save the day.Benji will forever be the world's most huggable hero, and he really was an important part of my childhood. This story means a great deal to me, and I feel sure it will continue to touch the lives of all children who are fortunate enough to discover and come to love this most remarkable of canines.
