Snake and Lizard by Joy Cowley

url-2I have lots of nature lovers in the library, and plenty of fiction books starring animals, but not so many that feature reptiles. I finally found a chapter book about snakes! Snake and Lizard by Joy Cowley, a New Zealand author who has written more than 600 books, is made up of 15 short, humorous chapters with beautiful color illustrations. There are some realistic details, as the characters hunt for their food and stay safe from their enemies, which will make the book popular with budding zoologists. There is also a little flavor of the Frog and Toad books, as Snake and Lizard learn about friendship and the give and take of life, encounter bad moods, start a business helping other animals, and share stories, wishes and fears.
