This hybrid picture/chapter book is ideal for kids as young as 3 and as old as 8, depending on reading level and parental involvement.

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?

There’s only one way to find out: join Honey in her wayward adventure in this edition of the color-illustrated Bird Brain Books series for children 4-8 years old.

    Rating by Naiellen on May 20, 2013:

    This post was inspired by “How to write like ‘The Stig’ drives” on M J Wright’s blog. I read his blog specifically because I’m never sure what he’s going to write about next. He’s always got a different point of view, and can write from many different angles. His writing allows one to view different scenarios and possibilities rather than predictable ones. How to write like ‘The Stig’ drives centered around influential writers, and why they’re writing ‘Stig’s’

    If all you do is read his bio at the bottom of each post, you’ll understand why. I also read it because I can identify with him. I have one more economics course to finish, and I’ll actually be able to confer a 3rd degree.

    Wright, has this for experience:

    Matthew Wright is one of New Zealand’s most published historians and writers. He has qualifications in music, history and anthropology, among other fields, holds multiple post-graduate degrees in history, and is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society at University College, London. He published his first short story in 1976 and since the early 1980s has worked extensively as a writer, professional historian, reviewer and journalist. His work includes more than 500 articles, academic papers, reviews and over 45 books on topics ranging from travel guides to biography, engineering, military and social history. He is published principally by Penguin and Random House. Wright is perhaps best known for his historical work, which has received academic and popular recognition. His book ‘Hawke’s Bay – The History of a Province’ (Dunmore 1994) won a J M Sherrard Award in local and regional history in 1996.

    If he’s not my hero, he’s at least justification for pursuing 3 (other’s would say unrelated) degrees here in Brandon. And yes, perhaps, I’m just using this a self-fulfilling/self-efficacy educing self-therapy.

    This is also, why I still like to read/look at the pictures of children’s books. The stories are usually simple, moral based, and have cute characters.

    Also, a convenient segue to a small book review of Honey the Hero by Emlyn Chand.

    Honey is a parakeet, and an adventurous one at that. Her heart is also always in the right place, even if her intentions don’t always work out quite like she plans.

    First of all, cute images. I also have to say I like the cover of the next book in the series as well and I’m looking forward to reading the story that’s inside it too .

    Whole new level of ‘crazy bird lady’

    Davey the Detective

    All this coming from someone who doesn’t like birds much at all. I would love to have the ability to fly though, which is probably why I enjoy reading books about flying, but not being around flying things.

    I liked the story simply because it sounded like a story that my mom or dad would have made up when I was young. Their bed time stories were often about animals of some form taking on human qualities.

    This is a kids book with feeling, a moral, laughs, and tenderness.

    I think everyone needs heroes, even if they’re adults. In my head, the heroes are all grown up now, and people who take on evil politicians and giant corporate entities. I wish there were more I could think of. They also tend to be highly intelligent. Stephen Hawking style. I’d like Stephen Hawking to be able to transfer his intellect and intelligence into the realm of politics somehow. That would be my modern day hero, and he could fly too.

    So, in the end, I enjoyed reading about Honey because it let me imagine a better world, and that’s something that’s often hidden deep under the everyday surface lately.

    Ever wanted to write a children’s book, and if so what’s stopping you?

    Who are your writing ‘Stig’s and what were your favorite bedtime stories?
