Editorial Reviews

Review

"A wholesome, down-home children's book, with fine illustrations and a kid-friendly moral." - Kirkus Media

"Author Karen Matthews and Illustrator Josh Taylor worked magic with this tale.  This scenario is familiar in many homes:  a grandfather tells an elaborate story to his grandchild.  I felt at home with the book, and connected because of the stories I used to hear when I was young." - Reader's Favorite

More About the Author

Karen Matthews is a technical writer and the owner of Carolina Souvenirs (www.carolinasouvenirs.com), a company developing unique new souvenir products for the North and South Carolina tourist markets. She has a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Alabama. She lives with her husband, Richard, on a small farm in Sanford, North Carolina.

Her first book, "The Legend of Lizard Lick", is a whimsical fully illustrated children's book about how the tiny community of Lizard Lick, North Carolina, got its funny name. Hint: it has to do with frogs and lizards fighting over the water that is drying up in Sweetwater Pond during a drought and how they ultimately resolve their differences.

Kirkus media says in their review "A wholesome, down-home children's book, with fine illustrations and a kid-friendly moral...The author's easy-to read, descriptive prose is accompanied by Taylor's beautiful watercolor illustrations that colorfully and wonderfully develop the story's world and characters. Frogs and Lizards are rendered in exquisite detail, with humanlike expressions, while still retaining their animal qualities, and the backgrounds will give young readers a great sense of the North Carolina landscape."

Lizard Lick is a fabulous children's book. My grandchildren loved it. The art work is unbelievably good. My granddaughter loved figuring out the different lizards and toads. She was captivated by the animals. Your children will love it just as much as we did.

This story of how Lizard Lick, NC got it's name was a fun read for my 2 year old. He loved looking at the pictures and pointing out all the lizards and frogs. This book is quickly becoming one of his favorite reads.
