Sneed B. Collard III's Most Fun Book Ever About Lizards Hardcover – February 1, 2012
With a pleasant, conversational text and ample, fascinating photographs, this will engage readers from beginning to end. Those already enamored of lizards will find much to like, while those less charmed may just catch some of the author’s enthusiasm for his scaly subjects. Collard’s playful style is reminiscent of a captivating nature program, complete with excellent pacing—each section ends with a cliffhanger drawing the reader onward. The many close-up photographs, often showing the lizards with what seems to be almost mammal-like expressions, are appealing, though readers are strongly cautioned against getting lizards as pets. The design of the book is also impressive: well-captioned photos are strategically placed and balanced with appealing blocks of text. A short glossary and list of further reading are included. Fans of Nic Bishop Lizards (2010) who are looking for more information on the topic will especially appreciate this title. Grades 4-7. --Randall Enos
