She's teaching night school and agreed to care for the lizard over the summer. At first, she's terribly fearful of the creature, but develops an affection for him when she learns they have something in common.

    How cute

    What a cute story. A bit of an abrupt ending (hemce the 4), but still a really good thing to read with the little kiddies.

    It was a very short story but cute. I liked the fact that it showed that animals have feelings too.

    Cool

    This story is great! It's the very first book I got on my Nook. I just wish it would be longer. Yes, it's a kids book but I do think it's too short.
