My Take on the Book
I believe you and your child will enjoy this book which is written like a comic book. It is colorful and the story will keep you engaged to the very end. There is adventure as Cecil , the toad, is captured by children in a science class and put in the classroom terrarium. Here Cecil meets two other animals. Of course his friends want to rescue him and thus the mission commences.
Along the way, the author has added information about the environment which fits in well with the story line. The author included basic information about garter snakes, chameleons , and how to build a terrarium for your home.
The illustrations showing the characters expressions are quite humorous and add to the the enjoyment in reading the story.
