Gecko & Mosquito - Grades : 1 - 2
Gecko is only a few inches tall, but that's still big enough to be a bully when there are smaller creatures around the house—like Mosquito and her insect friends. But Mosquito is tired of being chased and harassed by the greedy lizard. In Gecko and Mosquito, a new 32-page hardcover children s book from Watermark Publishing, Mosquito is the unlikely hero who saves the day and frees the household bugs from Gecko's tyranny with a clever plan. Gecko may be bigger, but he's definitely not smarter.
Told in rhyming verse, with a liberal sprinkling of Hawaiian words and a glossary, Gecko and Mosquito shows young readers how one brave little bug meets a very big challenge. Hardcover. Desica, Melissa. 2007.
