Summary: Evolved Publishing brings you the first of the "Bird Brain Books" by
Emlyn Chand, "Honey the Hero." This children's picture book, with full
color illustrations by artist Sarah Shaw, is for kids 4 to 6 years old.
an inquisitive, young parakeet living in the Australian Outback,
decides to become a superhero after she spies a human family watching
Superman. Since she already has the power of flight, all she needs to do
is create a costume to conceal her true identity and then fly off in
search of animals that need rescuing.
Unfortunately, every time
she tries to help, Honey only ends up making matters worse. She spoils
Kangaroo's game of hide-and-go-seek by revealing his hiding place to
Wallaby; Mr. Anteater must go hungry when she alerts the ants to his
presence, and Mrs. Koala is made a laughingstock among bears when Honey
pretends to be her Joey. Finally realizing that she's not as heroic as
she'd like, Honey gives up her day-saving efforts.
But what happens when someone actually needs Honey's help? Will she rise to the challenge?
This is one of the sweetest kid stories I have ever read and Honey is absolutely adorable. I loved the costume she made - very creative. When she was sad, I was sad. And I really liked the artwork. Great job. Definitely a book that I will be sharing with many kids in the future. :)
