About the Book
Everyone knows that lizards eat flies, but Bli the Fly and Danny the Wizard Lizard are willing to put their differences aside to become the best of friends.

Danny the Wizard Lizard goes on a fly-free diet as he sets out to prove that he is not like all the other lizards. During their quest for friendship, Danny the Wizard Lizard and Bli the Fly encounter the Lousy Lizard Gang, a no-good group of bullies. Danny the Wizard Lizard gives the first glimpse into why he is a Wizard Lizard by exhibiting special powers to stop the bullying that goes on at the movie theater. Witnessing his heroic act, Bli the Fly's mother, Mrs. Fly, realizes that she misjudged this lizard, and Bli the Fly gets her first lesson in giving second chances.

Don't Judge a Lizard by His Scales, Book One in The Principle Gang series by Dr. Dan and Bli Dugi, delivers lessons in anti-bullying, prejudice, and the value of friendships. The Principle Gang series introduces the foundational principles that guide families, relationships, and communities.

My Take on the Book
The authors have written a book about bullying. The main characters are Bli the fly and Danny the wizard lizard. They want to be friends and unlikely friends they would normally be. However they do form a friendship and help to squelch an incident of bullying by the Lousy Lizard Gang. Danny takes steps to stop them in spite of being alone in his efforts. In this lesson everyone watching learns that bullying can be stopped. With all the bullying that is occurring in our schools and community, this book is perfect to read to our children whether it is done at home or at school. I believe this book would be useful in a discussion with children about how to stop those who bully or what to do themselves when they are in a situation of being the brunt of a bully.
