Product Details


“Borges contributes bold, rustic woodcuts that leave plenty of room for symbolic interpretations…. A pensive, allegorical fairy tale for readers ready to sit with perplexity.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Ably translated by the Caistors, this surreal fable by Nobel Prize–winner Saramago imagines a monstrously outsize military response to the appearance of a lizard. … the fable serves as a reminder that in toxic political situations, nothing—not even a fairy lizard—is safe. Ages 6–9.” —Publishers Weekly
