A cute book regarding turning the tide on the other and getting even. In Africa, two animals work together with end end result of sharing the reward. The Honeyguide and the Honey badger are partners. Usually, the honeyguide finds the honeycomb and the honey badger, with long claws, cracks open the honeycomb and both share the reward.

Until, one day, greedy, hungry honey badger selfishly eats all the honey. Honeyguide is not happy and decides to lead a chase to what the badger thinks is his share.

However, on his tail was a huge lion. Badger ran as fast as possible, missing the lion's claws by mere inches.

Jan Brett's books never cease to amaze. She is incredibly talented, and I simply enjoy looking at her marvelous astistry. Young Hedgie the hedgehog feels the chill in the air and knows snow is not far behind. This year, Hedgie vows to stay awake throughout the winter and enjoy the beauty of fresh snow that coats every thing around the farm. This year, Hedgie doesn't want to miss a minute.

This is yet another beautiul book that I've come to expect from Jan Brett. While Snowy wants to stay awake, she is having a difficult time keeping her eyes open. Young Lisa loves all the creatures that live on the farm. She makes a special basket bed for Hedgie and brings her inside. Every day there is something new to watch. The chicken coup sparkles; Lisa's skating around the ice with the ducks brings special job. And this year she is awake long enough to see the snowmen Lisa made. Every day Hedgie had a more difficult time staying awake. But, one day she awakes to all the animals that belong in the barn and in the woods now inside the house.

I always enjoy the creativity of this artist.

When Nicki drops one of his new white mittens in the snow, he doesn't even notice it's missing. One by one, the woodland animals discover the mitten and crawl inside, each one larger than the last.
