A delightful tale about tails! Good to have a hidden mouse on some pages,children and adults will enjoy hunting for him. Lovely description of all the friends in the story and lots of interesting facts too! I loved the humour and this is a great book to share

A most interesting and educative way of learning about these Madeira lizards. This little book is like a biology for kids book that gives unique and interesting information about a few of the Madeiran animal citizens. It is colorful and very eye catching with a little quirkiness to it, simple and nice yet informative.
