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.
