Honey, 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?
I am in love with this series of books! My boys love them too. In this book Honey the parakeet wants to be a superhero. Every time he tries though it goes awry. Thank goodness she doesn’t give up though because in the end she is a hero. I love the keep trying message in this. My boys both have some issues that frustrate them, and it’s so nice to sit and read a story where it’s encouraging them to keep going. The story is so engaging and the illustrations are bright and attention catching. 5/5!
