Stay, Benson! by Thereza Rowe is a treasure. Benson is a mischievous dog, who despite being told to “Stay!” by his owner, cannot resist the strong urge to chase. He sneaks out the back door as soon as she leaves and wreaks havoc in his yard and the larger neighborhood. His antics literally leap off the page due to the clever and eye-catching die-cut illustrations. Benson has conveniently heard "Play!" rather than "Stay!” and takes his version of the instructions to heart.
