Featuring exotic images and empathetic language, this modern-day Indian fairy tale teaches children to respect and appreciate nature. The story of the honey hunters takes place in Sunderban, a land of eighteen tides and six seasons, where three rivers meet in a huge mangrove forest. Everyone who lives in Sunderban loves honey, especially a small, black haired boy named Shonu who one day breaks the golden rule and takes honey from the hives.
