Eddie & The Lizard Man


Loved it! 😍

A story about Eddie and his lizard-like boss that leads him on an adventure in the small town of Linemell. Will he discover the truth?

"Eddie and the Lizard Man" is a charming, short novel about Eddie Billings. The novel is aimed towards middle school children/teens. He is a young man that is very curious, and he keeps a journal of his findings. He works at an antique store, and his boss in particular comes off as a bit weird to Eddie. Eddie is never allowed to disturb him between the hours of 1 pm to 3 pm, but why? Eddie accidentally overhears a phone call that sets him off onto an adventure in town, trying to discover the truth about his boss. The ending of Eddie's first adventure will leave you puzzled and curious to discover what will happen next.

The novel itself is a very easy, enjoyable read. It has short, snappy sentences that makes it very easy for someone with ADD, ADHD, ME or similar, to enjoy the story. There are no unusually big words anywhere in the text, so it would be at an appropriate level for most ages. It takes about an hour to finish the novel if you read at a moderate speed, and it is neatly decorated with little drawings to create visual stimuli too. This makes it a lot easier for someone who struggles with focusing to actually feel a sense of accomplishment by being able to finish a book in one day. The Liner siblings have created a curious little universe, and I am very excited to see what kind of adventures they will take Eddie Billings on in the future. There is a lot of potential for interesting stories, not only regarding Eddie and his boss. Although it is aimed towards a younger audience, I'm sure that anyone would be able to at least being left with a positive first impression while reading through this story. I would definitely recommend it for its target demographic.
