Wild Honey from the Moon
Mother Shrew is worried about her son Hugo, who has been quite sick. The doctor says the only cure for Hugo is wild honey from the moon. Nothing can get in the way of this mother’s love. She must find a way to get to the moon and bring back some wild honey for Hugo. She leaves the house and meets up with the Great Horned Owl, who would like to eat Mother Shrew, but she talks him into proving he can really fly to the moon. Once there, she has to tame a Night Mare, hitch a ride with a Giant Butterfly, and overcome a swarm of angry bees before she can get to the Queen Bee who holds the key to the very thing Mother Shrew needs. Can she save Hugo?
