About the Author

Jan Brett and her husband, Joe, have visited Botswana three times. Their guide, Ali Tiego, told them the true story of the honeyguide, and then the legend—if you don’t share the honey, the next time the honeyguide will lead you to a lion! “Ali taught us that large cats could be hiding anywhere, especially under the candle pod acacia,” Jan says. “In Tswana, the language of Botswana, this shrub is called ‘the house of the lion.’”

How does news travel without any telephones? “It’s a bush telegraph, we were told. Ali is always listening to the sounds. The yelp of a jackal or a guinea hen’s cackle spells out a whole story—if you know how to listen."

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–This title is based on the legend of the honeyguide, an African bird that leads an animal to a honeycomb and then shares the spoils once the stronger creature has broken it open. In Brett's version, Honeyguide takes revenge upon a greedy honey badger that refuses to share the sweet treat. She leads him on a merry chase that ends up not at a honeycomb but at the lair of a lion. Badger's pursuit of the honeyguide and flight from the lion are reminiscent of We're Going on a Bear Hunt, with each landmark and sound effect revisited on the return journey. Brett has created another lush winner with beautifully detailed illustrations of the animals and a clear, fast-paced story. Honeyguide's anger and subsequent punishment of Badger is witnessed by the other animals that form a bush telegraph, passing news along from individual to individual. This process is visualized on the edges of each page in typical Brett style–a story within a story. This lovely title works equally well for storyhours or for one-on-one sharing. Readers interested in other versions of the legend can check out Francesca Martin's The Honey Hunters (Candlewick, 1994).–Kara Schaff Dean, Needham Public Library, MA
