…when the honey guide lands on
a distant bush, rock, or tree, follow
where she leads.
When she flies to the top
of a hill overlooking a herd
of elephants, follow.
Carefully carry your lighted stick.
Do not drop embers where
they may burn.
Follow the honey guide as she leads you through the African landscape to a sweet rewared. Symbiosis, Africa, birds, zebras, bees, and honey all show up in this award-winning nonfiction picture book about the honey guide, a unique bird that has an extraordinary relationship with people.
Also available in a French edition: L’oiseau a Miel, Archimede publishing, Paris.
