This book is about two hummingbirds living life together. One hummingbird loves the red juice that the humans leave out for them, even though there were dangers like cats and squirrels. This hummingbird continually lies to the other humming bird about where it is going. Each time it lies, its beak grows longer. The second hummingbird sees through the lies but knows that it can not stop the hummingbird it loves. Eventually, the hummingbirds beak became so long that it can not carry the burden of it anymore. This book can be used to explain addiction, from food and candy to drugs and alcohol.
