Though Snake and Lizard have their differences, friendship prevails and the two are best of friends, going on short adventures from story to story.

A hilarious collection of stories from some of your favorite authors - don't miss out on this one.  My personal favorite is the story by Kate DiCamillo and Jon Scieszka - a series of letters between a favorite author, and a kid looking to get his homework done quickly and easily.
