Honey tells the story of Melody, a lover of words, and Mo, a dog looking for the girl in his dream. Weeks creates all sorts of interesting characters—the Bee Bee the beauty salon owner who makes all her own nail polish; Henry, Melody’s father who sparked her love of words; Nick, Melody’s best friend and confidant, with family drama of his own; and Teeny, the nosy kindergartner neighbor.
Told in alternating perspectives, Melody’s and Mo’s respectively, Honey allows readers to get an inside view of the plot, and figure out twists before the characters. Plus, it’s always fun to read from the pet’s perspective.
While certainly not my favorite children’s book, it is a sweet and easy read. I might have to check out more of Sarah Weeks‘ books next!
