Hugo -- The Great Horned Owl -- The Night Mares -- Butterfly Vale -- The Garden of the Queen Bee -- Wild honey from the Moon -- The return of Mother Shrew.
"On a cold winter's eve, deep in the woods, a mother shrew frets about her sick young son. His head is cold and his feet are hot, and there is only one thing that can cure him: wild honey from the moon. Mother Shrew does not stop to wonder how she will make such an impossible journey. Instead, she grabs her trusty red umbrella, gives her darling son a kiss, and sets out into the unknown. Along the way, Mother Shrew encounters one obstacle after another, from a malevolent owl to a herd of restless "night mares" to an island humming with angry bees. But each can prove no match for a mother on a mission. From the mind of the uniquely talented Kenneth Kraegel comes an utterly original ode to the limitlessness of maternal love. In an epic adventure like no other, an unflappable mother will stop at nothing to find a cure for her ailing young son -- even if it means traveling to the moon itself."-- Provided by publisher.
