A Kinkajou on the Town
Illustrated by Lorence Bjorklund

Benny the kinkajou looked deceptively angelic—rather like a live teddy bear— when Tim persuaded his father to buy him for a pet. Tim soon discovered Benny's mischievous nature, but the little kinkajou's Houdini-like cleverness was not really tested until, because Tim was sent to boarding school, Benny was sent to the zoo.

Determined to get back to his master, Benny escaped from his cage again and again. His search for Tim led him into some hilarious escapades, then into danger in the desert, and finally to a poignant reunion.

The California desert, the rugged hill country around Santa Barbara, and the animals native to that part of the West are vividly described by one of Ameri ca's great nature writers. In Benny the kinkajou, Rutherford G. Montgomery has created a particularly engaging animal character. Pencil drawings by Lorence Bjorklund perfectly portray the appealing characters and the beautiful natural setting of this fine story of the loyal friendship of a boy and his unusual pet.
