When Honeybee decides to take a nap in the same flower as Horsefly, trouble ensues! They don't want to share, and after quarrelling, run away in opposite directions. But it isn't long until they meet again… They have both been captured by hungry Bullfrog! If Horsely and Honeybee are to escape before dinnertime, they must find a way to work together.

With beautiful illustrations and simple text, this is a sweet story about sharing and friendship.

“With a saturated, brightly colored palette, Cecil creates quirky characters who deliver a clear message.” —New York Times Book Review

“Cecil's illustrations capture the comedy and down-home charm of this tale and its lovable characters. A pitch-perfect picture book.” —School Library Journal, starred review on Randy Cecil’s illustrations of Big Day on the River

“Cecil's illustrations sparkle with humor.” —Kirkus Reviews on Randy Cecil’s illustrations of The Singing Chick

“This Wild West fairy tale makes other versions look limp by comparison.” —Kirkus Reviews, pointer review on Randy Cecil’s illustrations of Little Red Cowboy Hat
