A delightful story about a group of friends and a rather large jar of honey. In Hands Off My Honey by Jane Chapman, Bear has a big jar of delicious honey, but he refuses to share. The Rabbit Brothers, Mouse, and Mole plot on how they can get their hands on some before Bear spies them.
Loved, loved, loved this book. In addition to the fabulous artwork by Tim Wanes, Chapman has created a superb story with a surprise ending. I honestly didn’t see it coming. At first I thought this book would be a message-driven story teaching children how to share, but that’s not what this book is about at all. It’s about friendship and fun. I won’t spoil the surprise for you, but it’s a great one. Many of the action words are bolded so they stand out, just like some of what Bear says is printed in a larger, bolder font to give the impression of him speaking loud. He is, after, all, a Scary Bear.
Kids will want to read this one time and again. Highly recommended.
