Treasures come in all shapes and sizes and children delight in collecting them. A typical shoe box might hold colorful leaves, sparkly rocks, a found trinket or toy, and yes, even eggs. So when main character Leonard discovers an egg in the park, the wonder of childhood is ignited and catapulted into an imaginative story. Leonard doesn’t initially bargain on the egg hatching, but when his new lizard friend grows beyond his control, Leonard provides an uplifting solution. Author/Illustrator Mark Pett offers a thought provoking image in the end that leaves us asking, “Was this real or did Leonard imagine it all?” The soft water colors and innocent, observational expressions from Leonard encourage imagination and lead us to believe that Leonard may have imagined the whole thing. To be left in deep thought is another treasure that will spark many classroom discussions, as well as an analysis of the plot. Do you see any clues?
