Reviews - What do customers think about Izzy the Lizzy?

Friends or Foes or Just a Good Meal  Jul 12, 2005
A tale of terror (well, terror from a spider and a bee's perspective) in Izzy the Lizzy written by Renee Riva and illustrated by Steve Bjorkman will keep children turning page after exquisitely illustrated page to share in a desperate web of suspense. Will hunger and a captured dinner win out? or is there room for mercy and compassion from hungry stomachs? Anastasia the Spider and Jeb the Bee aren't so sure. With whimsical rhyme set to colorful pictures and captivating expressions, children will eagerly anticipate the answer each time the book is read.
 
Lonely Lizzy found by students!  Jul 6, 2005
"On the shores of Bitty Bayou, along a bitsy bog, a lonely little lizard lived in a lumpy log." Over 400 of my primary library students were already hooked into the book by these words and the pictures in Izzy the Lizzy. What a delightful story with a twist as mercy is satisfied instead of animal instincts. I loved the ryhme and rhythm of this book, the lesson it taught and the pictures that are so appealing to the senses. My students did also. Many of them bought the Book after hearing and seeing it! We think you will too! Wonderful job by Renee Riva and Steve Bjorkman!
 
We loved Izzy!  Jul 5, 2005
I read this book to my Kindergarten class and they all agreed Izzy is a hit! The story kept them very interested throughout and they really enjoyed the ending.
 
A Lesson in Mercy  Jul 5, 2005
A touch of rhyme, a helping of humor, and a wee dash of scary combine in this whimsical story about sharing with others the compassion you desire for yourself. It's a story children will want to read again and again, with a message that will serve them for a lifetime.
 
LOVED this book!!!!  Jul 2, 2005
This was one of the most clever stories I have read in Children's books in a LONG time! And the illustrations are adorable! My grand-daughter and I could not put this book down and it's one of her favorites, along with Ms. Riva's other book, "Guido's Gondola"! The writing is totally delightful, and I also loved the moral of the story and the teachings. A "must buy" for anyone's library, adult or child! And perfect for gifting to famiy or friends.... HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
