One of my favorite young bookworms, Kate F., read and reviewed The Literary Lizard. This girl is a talented writer herself, so to have her review my work is an honor. I have heard her read her work, and I see great things ahead for her. The Literary Lizard is illustrated by Robin Wiesneth. And here is Kate F.’s review:
New Book by Local Author
Have you ever heard of a reptile reading? I have, with the new children’s book, Literary Lizard. Step inside the mind of a miniscule dragon with this great story by Angela Yuriko
Smith. She is having a book signing at Café Bienville, Niceville, Oct. 17, with both her and her illustrator there to sign your book in person.
Meet this tiny lizard, learning all sorts of new words, just like us. From newspaper clippings in his small cage, to open books in the large library, he is learning to read one step at a time. This cheerful lizard is eager to learn more about every word he encounters, being taught by people reading the words beneath his feet aloud. The illustrations by Robin Wiesneth really help tell the story, with vibrant colors, touches of humor, and beautiful highlighting effects.
This book can make you laugh, teach you about the magic of reading, and still tell a story. To read this book is to explore the world alongside this little lizard, and get a book of your own. Angela Yuriko Smith has written many children’s books, such as “Monsters are Everywhere”, “What did the Cat See?”, and “Don’t Worry, Star”, and you can find them at http://angelaysmith.com/ and Amazon.
