The detailed and expressive illustrations help tell the story and add a touch of whimsy. It also has simple enough words that an early reader would enjoy reading it by themselves.

Synopsis

Bee's friend Cow is stuck in a fence and asks for his help. Bee cannot help cow by himself so he decides to get the word out to as many farmyard friends as possible. But when he tells Frog about Cow's predicament and asks him to "Pass it on!", the message that gets passed to Pig is: "Cow put duck in a tent!" From there, the message morphs into the tent falling on a woodchuck, cow having good luck, a penny, some money, some honey, etc. In the end, understanding dawns, Cow is dis-lodged, and he and Bee thank their friends with fresh milk and honey.

Each message is escalated into greater heights — or depths — of absurdity, gleefully depicted in Slack’s retro Tibor Gergely-style illustrations.
