Et tu, Honey Badger? Et tu?

Folks, kids books are sacred territory. A place where we learn about the world around us and to fear the woods. The are not vehicles for propagating lies, but apparently not everyone got that message. As Ed Yong recently revealed, the beloved story of the honey guide and the honey badger is completely false.

Damnit, Jan Brett. Where is your fact checking?

What. The. Hell? Do a search for kid's books on the honey badger and many books show up, all based on this mythical relationship. I've read the book pictured above countless times to my daughter and now how can I pull it off the shelf again? What other kid's books are lying to us?

Wait... everybody still poops, right? Right?
