Review by my son:

Review by Dylan, age 10

My mum said I would like this book. She was right. And that’s not only because it was short – although that did help. I like reading short books.

“Dylan is MAD about short books (and video games and drawing). Dylan will only eat short book spaghetti or short-book-shaped biscuits. Dylan will only wear underpants with short books on. Dylan will only go out if he is wearing one of his short book costumes . . .”

Okay, okay, I’ll stop. I borrowed John Hamilton’s

Loved this book but then I am slightly biased as I wrote and illustrated it...! But I highly recommend it to anyone of any age who has loved or kept lizards!

A really lovely book perfectly capturing childhood passion (in this case for lizards, but they stand for anything that your child has become obsessed with). The story is charming and the quiet, soft illustrations are almost stroke-able! A great book to read if you're off on a museum visit with kids.

Beautifully written and illustrated children's book. A brilliant gift for any young child also a brilliant way of being able to own a piece by John Hamilton. Loved it.

I bought this for my five year old niece. Both she and her seven year old sister loved it.It's a simple, engaging story illustrated with care and detail. A great gift for younger children.
