“This lively sequel to Lizard’s Song will have preschoolers cheering for the book’s small but intrepid hero…Buoyant and affirming, especially for children who have had to deal with their own snakes in the grass.” PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“Any child ousted from a favorite spot by a belligerent classmate will relate to Lizard’s predicament in this colorfully illustrated story…[as a real aloud] this might aid a beginning discussion of probability.” ALA BOOKLIST

“Shannon’s bouncey text is echoed in Aruego and Dewey’s ebullient watercolors of flower-filled landscapes and colorful critters, and Lizard’s new wishing song will roll off the tongue as trippingly as his original hit tune.” SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
