In this brightly illustrated sequel to <i>Insects Are My Life</i>, Amanda still loves insects, but now she has a best friend, Maggie, who is wild about reptiles. They are like two bugs in a rug, or two crocs on a rock. Then Emily Elligator, a new girl, arrives, wearing her gecko shirt and chirping like a lizard on the playground. Suddenly Maggie and Emily are fast friends, and where does that leave Amanda? All by herself, feeling like a louse. Funny and true to life, with many fascinating facts about insects and reptiles sprinkled throughout the story, here is a book about what really matters in a friendship.
