A shape-shifting lizard becomes anything he wants in this funny--and empowering--Beginner Book by award-winning illustrator Bob Staake!
The giant lizard star of Bob Staake's Beginner Book Can You See Me? is back--and this time, instead of changing colors, he's changing shapes. (Very un-lizard-like shapes, including a robot on a dairy cow, a surfboard for a whale, and a one-eyed, green-headed monster!) Featuring simple rhymed text and high-energy graphic-style illustrations, this cheerful, funny easy reader is exactly what Dr. Seuss had in mind when he launched the Beginner Books series in 1957 with The Cat in the Hat. What's more, Staake's charming lizard shares an empowering "You can do it!" message with young readers.
