Dry bear humor

Turns out that there quite a few Benjamin Bears out there, but I don’t think there are many with the whimsy and charm of the one imagined by Philippe Coudray.  This new Toon Book is deceptively simple – one page comics made up of several panels each.  Benjamin and his friends (and whoever else) are drawn very simply, in a way that doesn’t overshadow the joke.  Benjamin is a kind bear who sees the possibilities in life.  When he meets a skinny, crescent moon, he feeds the moon until he is full (and quite round).  A karate-choppin’ fox breaks some boards and taunts Benjamin to copy him, and instead of foolishly hurting his hands, he picks up the fox and uses the fox’s karate chop action.  Check out some others from Benjamin Bear in Fuzzy Thinking:
