The African plains provide a stunning environment for Jan Brett's latest animal adventure. For as long as anyone can remember, the honeyguide bird and the African honey badger have been partners when it comes to honey:Honeyguide finds the honeycomb, Badger breaks it open, and they share the sweetness inside.
But this day, Badger keeps all the honey for himself. Foolish Badger!
In no time, Honeyguide leads Badger on a fast chase. Badger thinks it's for honey; but Honeyguide has a surprise waiting for her greedy friend.
As they swim across a pond, push through a thicket of reeds, leap over a huge anthill, a menagerie of exotic animals passes the news along in a kind of animal Bush Telegraph. Finally Badger faces a lift-the-flap page, revealing the twist that teaches Badger a lesson. Can you guess who's under that flap?
Honey . . . Honey . . . Lion! will surely become a family favorite for readers of all ages.
Baker & Taylor
After working together to obtain honey, the African honey badger always shares it with his partner, the honeyguide bird, until one day when the honey badger becomes greedy and his feathered friend decides to teach him a lesson.
When greedy Badger decides to keep the honeycomb all to himself, instead of sharing it with Honeyguide bird, he is chased through the pond, over an anthill, and through a landscape of many exotic animals where something waits to teach Badger a valuable lesson.
