“I love that book! I love bears. I love not grizzly bears - I love nice bears!"
“I love honey on my porridge.”
“The rabbits are putting mud on their faces to be camouflaged!”
“Like the army.”
“But look! PRICKLES! What do you think will happen to Mole..?”
“The twins make me read it every evening before bed and have made their own 'Big scary bear' game which they play in the garden! : ) So cute.”
"The delightful surprise ending is sure to bring smiles – along with the words 'read it again!'"

Hands Off My Honey!
By Jane Chapman
Illustrated by Tim Warnes
Little Tiger Press 2013
Bear has a great, big jar of delicious honey, and he’s NOT in the mood to share! Will Mouse and her team get a pawful without that scary bear seeing them?
Jane wrote this story, but I wanted to illustrate it so badly that she gave in to my pleading and let me - now apparently I owe her...! It’s inspired by those simple childhood games where a willing adult (for Jane her Grandad) would pretend to be really grumpy and then CHASE YOU (cue hysterical squealing)!!!
I especially like the Rabbit Brothers, who never say a thing, and use mud to camouflage themselves from Bear.
