After the First Lady orders
May Tree cut down,
Honey-Bea and her best friend -- a walking and talking houseplant named
Miro-- set out to
save their beloved oak. Their quest takes them from the public-opinion
parroting polly-ticians of
Washing-Town to the ZU in the Big Pear, where animals meet to vote on
world issues. In the end Honey-Bea returns to Washing-Town, where she must
convince the First Lady that the life of one tree is worth saving.
Honey-Bea of Washing-Town is a funny, original and charming book sure to delight both children and adults. Not since Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Walt Kelly's Pogo has there been a heroine like Honey Bea or a place so strange and yet wonderfully familiar as Washing-Town.
