Wild Honey from the Moon

Written and Illustrated by Kenneth Kraegel

Mother Shrew’s only son is deathly sick and the only cure is a teaspoon of wild honey from the moon. Mother Shrew packs her red umbrella and begins her quest to obtain honey for her son. Nothing will stop her. She will trick an owl, calm a nightmare, befriend a butterfly, and convince the queen bee to part with some of her honey. The illustrations are dreamlike and the story is endearing. It is a book about a mother’s love and the risks a mother takes for her children. You will feel like you have emerged from a dream when you finish this book.
