Themes: Geckos/ New Zealand bush

‘Watching out for danger’ is Green Gecko’s cry as he scuttles through the bush over boulders, thick ferns, wet grass, rotten logs - all in his search for food. Then, in the best traditions of stories like We’re going on a Bear Hunt, he reverses the actions and scampers home again – to safety. Packed with information about the Wellington Green Gecko this is the third book from this duo (finalists in the LIANZA Children’s Book Awards and the New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards) that brought us Fantail’s Quilt and Watch Out, Snail. The detailed illustrations in greens (of course) and muted reds and blues really evoke the atmosphere of early morning in the bush.
