Lucha Lizards: Chameleon Cage Match

luchalizardsWritten by Donald Lemke, Illustrated by Chris “Elio” Eliopoulos


What a clever way to teach about lizards and their cousins! Donald mixes wrestling fun with interesting facts about Gila Monsters , salamanders and more. The story is simple, but Chris’s illustrations add life to it and the two together make the book very enjoyable. In the back of the book there are additional facts, written in the form of a yu-gi-oh card. It is a 3rd grade reading level, but kids of most age groups will be entertained while they learn. (Since the fact portion is minor, I don’t think it would be a true “non-fiction” book.)
