When we grow up, we leave the world of magical creatures and mystical places behind. But when you?re young, magic is all around you. Whether it?s a special book, a tiny crown, or even the creatures in your favorite garden, magic and friendship can help you do anything.
Clara finds magic everywhere she looks, including the little lizard friends that she reads to whenever she can. When her friends are in trouble, she learns that love and kindness are much stronger than hate and heartlessness.
Clara learns that by working together and having the support of her friends and family, she can make any wish come true. She can even turn a selfish bully into a sweet and gentle friend, ready to follow her on her next adventure.
Whether you?re young, or young at heart, still dreaming of your magical world, Kingdom of the Lizards will transport you to the wonderful days where you can relive your magic again and again.
