`I found it exciting, intriguing and emotional. It had a lot of ups and downs which kept me reading. I enjoyed this book, I would definitely recommend it to friends.' * Alexis, aged 12 * I loved streetwise Lizard; his loyalty, grit and optimism as he grapples with the criminal underworld, his lost uncle and the shadowy manoeuvres and menaces of WWII. Funny, moving and full of action, Lizard's Tale is a spy story where the kids are more than capable of handling themselves, the stakes are high and there's a surprise or secret around every corner. * Leanne Hall *
