Bear wants to reach the honey at the top of the tree. The problem: He's not tall enough. The solution: He stacks various other animals on top of one another until they reach the honey. Another problem: He forgot to take the bees into account!
What I thought: Hilarious in its simplicity. No more than 5 or 6 words on each page. The illustrations are great--colorful without being overpowering. Keep your eyes on the ants. I never realized there could so many ways to refer to your rear without being rude.
