Twelve Snails to One Lizard

A Tale of Mischief and Measurement

Illustrated by Matt Novak

About The Book

Mischief and measurement go hand in hand in this hilarious story about a beaver trying to fix the leak in his clam and the bull-frog who plays a big joke on him.

Wonderfully funny art, a jolly text, and comic-like pages make this an ideal classroom and story hour title. A unique list of measurement facts about the animals featured in the book is included.
