There is an East African bird that loves honeycombs but sometimes cannot reach them. So the honey guide calls to a person or a honey badger and leads them to a bee nest. The writer's powerful voice takes readers on a journey through beautifully and evocatively painted African landscapes. Carrying a burning stick (its smoke will subdue the angry bees), we move cautiously past a herd of elephants, a hidden snake, a sleeping lion, and hungry crocodiles - until, at last, we and the bird reach the honey. A remarkable relationship between people in East Africa and a species of bird is the basis of this compelling picture book.
