What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

The Permian Period was millions of years before the age of the dinosaurs…but it was still a eat-or-be-eaten world! A tiny gecko-like lizard confronts this once it lands on the menu of much larger, and oh so hungry, dimetrodon.

Refusing to accept its fate lying down, the lizard dares to counter generations of hallowed wisdom. It advises the big predator that it’s better to play with your food than to eat it. When the carnivore balks, the lizard simply won’t take no for an answer!
