Life just got more Lizardy!

Horace Burp, Lizard Boy Hero is the second in the planned four-book dyslexia-friendly Horace Burp series for children aged 6-9+ years old.

Horace has to face a vicious cat, a lost dog and coffins as well as Digger and the bullying Beefy Bogey gang, as he finds himself stuck in flooding tunnels in the dark with his injured dog, Angel, and his best friends Chu Fatt and Tina Tiddles.

Will Horace’s special Lizard Boy powers save the day again? Being different proves to be the coolest thing ever for Horace Burp, Lizard Boy Hero.

A hilarious, action-packed follow up to the Wishing Shelf bronze award winner, Horace Burp, Lizard Boy.

Book 1: Horace Burp, Lizard Boy

Life just got Lizardy!

Horace Burp, Lizard Boy  is the first of a planned four-book Horace series for children aged 6-9+ years old.

8 year old Horace Burp is busy enough coping with school bullies, embarrassing parents, a dead goldfish and a dog with pizza problems – but then Horace starts to change colour. Green, red, yellow, and blue. He thinks he might be turning into a chameleon lizard but who will believe him? Can he find a cure?

Horace’s strange chameleon powers come in pretty handy as he sets out to deal with the Beefy Bogey gang, a crazy vet called Pongo Fish, escaped rattlesnakes and a manic P.E. teacher.

Along the way, he begins to see the advantage of being different, and finds some friends who are also different.

A hilarious and heart-warming children’s book, written by Christine Tennent and illustrated by Rob Overend

(It has 80 pages and around 50 black-and-white illustrations. The book is also dyslexia friendly.)
