A delightful read March 19 2012
By LadyInRead - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Short stories that teach while being fun and without being preachy! These are perfect bedtime reads or classroom additions for young kids. The book teaches the food chain (very charmingly in the chapter aptly called `Life Cycle'), and also values of friendship and helping. The book is humorous, quirky, and a little macabre but still works well for children. Snake and Lizard are good friends in spite of the fact that they are different animals and snake is a girl while lizard is a boy. They are in the `helping' business and how they help other animals many times over in this chapter book is funny and sweet. Each chapter can be read by itself and also has some continuity.
Readers will enjoy when the friends discover what the monsters on four round legs eat! And when they explain the `life-cycle' (humorous and informative at the same time)

You can see examples of the word play and humor here from the book:
"The suspicions became so real in Lizard's head, they were like memories"
" `What is the difference between a flea and a snake?' - `A snake crawls on its own stomach.'"
"`Is this story? Or is it true?' `It is both, one hundred percent,' said Lizard."

In Summary: Delightful word play and colorful illustrations make this book a wonderful read while teaching lessons of friendship and nature.
Rating: B+

Cute, Sweet Read June 10 2015
By CC Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wen I first ordered this book, I went off the information provided that it was for "primary" readers. This is most certainly not the case. The book would be a great read-aloud for primary-aged children, in bits and chapters. But an independent reader couldn't tackle the book until elementary school. It's a fairly lengthy chapter book.

The stories inside deal with the friendship of Snake and Lizard, who live in a desert and have not-so-remarkable adventures, which is not to say the book is boring. However, what is remarkable to a couple of cold-blooded desert dwellers is old hat to humans who have seen more of the world. Their naiveté is charming and the stories are cute, filled with fun. Many of them have valuable, but not preachy, lessons about friendship, how to treat others, lying, exaggeration, etc.

I believe this is the second in a series, but you won't suffer from confusion if you start with this one first. Overall, a sweet and funny read.
