A playful nonsense rhyme and bold illustrations follow a group of animals as they try to get the bunny to pass the honey, the puffin to pass the muffin, and the parrot to pass the carrot.

Cheryl Chapman's playful nonsense rhyme, coupled with Susan L. Roth's bold and colorful art, turns a lesson in manners into a yummy storytime treat.From Publishers Weekly:
If Miss Manners swallowed a rhyming dictionary, she might have produced this spirited seminar on lunchtime etiquette. A boy at table issues a series of requests--"Pass the cantaloupe, Antelope," "Pass the muffin, Puffin," etc.--but he is refused each time. Finally, an adult reminds him that there's a "magic word," which, of course, is "please." The banquet then begins, and the boy dispels all doubts about his courtesy with such pleasantries as "After you, Kangaroo." Roth's cut-paper collages, far more suggestive here than in Another Christmas , add to the zaniness with gay swaths of color and festive touches (the fritters of the title seem to have been cut out with pinking shears; a bunny and a bear are fringed to hint at their furriness; napkins and bibs come from checkerboard-print paper). Best of all is the presiding adult, so large that when she appears full-figure, you have to turn the book sideways--and you still can't see her head. Like the rest of these pictures, it shows enough to make the reader laugh and it leaves just enough to the imagination. Ages 3-5.
