Green Lizards vs Red Rectangles

Green Lizards vs Red Rectangles

A brave and thought-provoking picture book about war and peace, from the creator of the much-loved Mr Panda series.

The green lizards and the red rectangles are at war. No one can remember why, but they fight and fight… Until one day, a little red rectangle decides to speak up. Can lizards and rectangles find a way to overcome their differences and live peacefully together?

Accessible for even the youngest readers, this is the perfect book to start conversations about learning to get along with each other.
