Geckos in the Garden
by Ruth Amanda




In the morning, after breakfast,

In the garden, in the sun,

I can see my little neighbour—

It’s a tiny gecko. One!

Is there anything more fun than hunting for geckos in your garden? This delightful counting book, told in whimsical rhyming couplets, invites readers to explore the wonder and joy of tromping through nature to look for geckos.

There’s one on the patio! And another in the shrubs! Before you know it, the whole morning will go by happily hunting geckos. Readers will find one, two, three, four… well, you get the idea. Geckos are everywhere, and they’re oh so much fun to discover.

Ruth Amanda is no stranger to hunting geckos! She went on her own adventures as a child, and taught the love of searching for critters in the garden first to her children, and now to her grandchildren. She doesn’t limit herself to hunting geckos, writing and art. She also loves to hunt for and photograph snails, slugs, ants, millipedes, monkeys, seagulls, puffins and any other unfortunate wildlife who happen to be discovered by the paparazzi. She is currently turning several of those creatures into characters for future works…coming soon!

Ruth lives in Barbados with her husband, David, who she met while she was living in the Arctic and he was living in Vancouver. Though they don’t currently have any pets, Ruth has named every bird at the birdfeeder—and, of course, several geckos! Her favourite gecko is Stumpy, who likes to live dangerously and is often seen regrowing his tail.

(There may be more than one Stumpy, it’s rather hard to tell the geckos apart when they are vanishing at high speed!)
