"We are happy to award deserving books like No Place for a Lizard,” said Dawn Matheson, CEO, Mom’s Choice Awards. “Our panel of judges really felt this book merited a place on our list of the best in family-friendly products that parents and educators can feel confident in using.”

 "Megan Deliberto gives the reader happy images of friendship, joy, and Bruno's gratitude for Anthony's efforts. It conveys the themes of friendship, emotion, and gratitude. Bruno’s best birthday is an enjoyable read for kids and adults alike; it reminds us of the power of true relationships and the joy of being with someone special on their birthday." Haiqa Munir, Reader's Favorite 

"In a world where division seems to be all around us, No Place for a Lizard is a springboard for us to teach our children one of life’s most timely and important lessons: how to connect with others and find common ground even when we’re different. This is such a heartwarming story  with a valuable life lesson to read our children!" Elizabeth Stefanech 

“Such an endearing story of friendship in spite of differences. This book’s timely message is a lesson for young and old readers alike. The characters, story-line, and illustrations make this an instant favorite!” Kathryn Rusnak - K-5 Administrator
