HUGHIE AND HONEY BEAR In this charming childrens story set in the wilds of Canada, a mother bear awakes after a long winters hibernation to find that she has given birth to two adorable bear cubs. The twins, Hughie and Honey, get into all kinds of hilarious situations as Mother Bear does her best to teach them everything they will need to know as adult bears. Boniface Idziaks bear cubs are delightful, lovable characters that children are sure to fall in love with. Careful not to let his readers forget that bears, though cute, are not like family pets, and can be quite dangerous, the author writes from the bears perspective in such a way that children can understand that wild animals do not mean to hurt anyone, they just see the human world in a different way than we do. Hughie and Honey Bear, in addition to providing the pure entertainment of a well-written childrens story, is important for its educational value. Mr. Idziak draws upon his own considerable knowledge of the Black Bear in its natural environment to create an informative, engaging book to be enjoyed by children of all ages.
