Review: Don't Judge a Lizard by His Scales Dan Dugi, Bli Marston Dugi

Everyone knows that lizards eat flies, but Bli the Fly and Danny the Wizard Lizard are willing to put their differences aside to become the best of friends.

Danny the Wizard Lizard goes on a fly-free diet as he sets out to prove that he is not like all the other lizards. During their quest for friendship, Danny the Wizard Lizard and Bli the Fly encounter the Lousy Lizard Gang, a no-good group of bullies. Danny the Wizard Lizard gives the first glimpse into why he is a Wizard Lizard by exhibiting special powers to stop the bullying that goes on at the movie theater. Witnessing his heroic act, Bli the Fly’s mother, Mrs. Fly, realizes that she misjudged this lizard, and Bli the Fly gets her first lesson in giving second chances.
Don’t Judge a Lizard by His Scales, Book One in The Principle Gangseries by Dr. Dan and Bli Dugi, delivers lessons in anti-bullying, prejudice, and the value of friendships. The Principle Gang series introduces the foundational principles that guide families, relationships, and communities.

We received this book to via NetGalley to give an honest review.

So I was really excited to be able to review this book as it seemed to be a good one to read to learn a lesson. Even though the lesson is there, I felt as though the two characters Bli and Danny didn't talk in a way that the younger kids would connect with them. 
K and I learned that you should give someone who is different a chance they may surprise you and they can become a good friend. Also let your parents know who you are hanging with so they can make sure they are good for you to be around.

I have to say I liked the advice in the back rather than the story being told. This book wasn't truly what I was expecting it to be.
