'In a sea of new picture books, Alan Windram’s stories stand out, with humour, characters and situations (who doesn’t hate chores!) that speak directly to the little readers they are meant for.'
' This engaging mystery story is utterly appealing and fun. The character of Benny the robot is very relatable for children and they will love the cute robotic cats. The mix of text and speech bubbles keeps the story moving with exciting events and humorous dialogue.' Scope For Imagination
'Young robot Benny returns for a new adventure (hurrah! I hear fans shout) ' Red Reading Hub
'Robots and aliens are a winning combination for Early Years and Key Stage 1 children. For Y1 particularly, this would be a great book to use as a read aloud at the beginning of the year but by July, many of the children would be able to read it independently.'

'Alan Windram’s sequel to the award-winning One Button Benny, will have young readers on the edge of their seats as they urge Benny on his latest adventure. This fabulous story is about friendship and of saving the day, one emergency button press, at a time. One Button Benny is brought to life by Chloe Holwill-Hunter’s fabulous illustrations, taking us on a fantastic colourful journey with Benny and his friends.' My Book Corner
'It is testament to the likeability of this character that T remembered Benny even though its over a year since we first met him at the 2019 Bradford Literature Festival (my wife also remembers the song the author sang at that same festival)! This story is a lot of fun, and the Trojan Horse twist was definitely unexpected! We also enjoyed the illustrations, with T particularly taken by the variety of robots and their pet pussy cats! There is definitely scope for more of One Button Benny! T told me, “I liked the cool robots and it was fun.”
