Snake and Lizard

By Joy Cowley
Illustrated by Gavin Bishop

Two very different creatures learn about the give-and-take of friendship in this warm and funny story set in the desert. A much-loved, timeless classic.

Snake is elegant and calm, and a little self-centred; Lizard is exuberant and irrepressible. With its wisdom, acceptance and good humour, Snake and Lizard captures the essence of friendship. The stories are beautifully illustrated by Gavin Bishop in warm and clear colours of the desert.
