An utterly charming selection of stories about two unlikely friends.
Snake and Lizard
In Joy Cowley’s warm and funny story, two very different creatures learn about the give-and-take
nature of friendship. With illustrations by Gavin Bishop.
Snake and Lizard are a lovable, foolish pair. They are always arguing, embarking on unlikely enterprises and telling one another hotly contested tales. But none of this behaviour lessens their affection for one another.
The judges of the NZ Post Children’s and Young Adult Book Awards said: “This timeless look at two feisty (and forgiving) best mates utterly beguiled the judges with its assured writing, sharp humour and gentle, unforced observations on the nature of friendship.”
The International Youth Library has also awarded this book with a White Raven, a prize given to 250 notable children’s books published internationally each year.
