“Upside down on the wall, basking in the hot Caribbean sun that shone through the window, lizard surveyed the room.”
He has sneaked in through an open door. The owners are out and he has his new kingdom to himself—apart, that is, from an irritating buzzing mosquito. That will make a tasty snack!
Of course nothing is straightforward and lizard’s plans are not easily achieved, the results being hilarious, colorful and very messy! This is a wonderful story that will make a good gift item, or story book for children of many ages, and adults will have fun reading it too!
Jill Pickering and artist Petrina Wright have both lived for many years on the island of Cayman Brac, where this story is set. There lizards and mosquitos are familiar adversaries and life in the sun is colored by the island’s spectacular landscape and seascape.
