Leo’s Map of Monsters: The Spitfang Lizard


In Leo’s Map of Monsters: The Spitfang Lizard, we follow the continuing adventures of young Leo Wilder.  He has been apprenticed to the Guardian to learn the skills that will help protect his village from the monsters that lurk in the surrounding forest.

On this occasion he has to combat the fearsome Spitfang Lizard, a nasty cross of snake and crocodile.  It has a horrific spit and a bite that is truly deadly.  All that Leo has to fight with is a magical map that will help him to find his grisly opponent and a slingshot.  He also gets sage advice from Starla, an intelligent and cunning leatherwing.

Leo is learning his job still, so can he see off the Spitfang and protect his village and his family?

This is an excellent addition to Kris Humphrey’s charming and exciting series.  It’s perfect for young readers moving into first chapter books.  The illustrations from Pete Williamson are vivid and action-packed as well.

Leo’s Map of Monsters: The Spitfang Lizard

Kris Humphrey, illustrated by Pete Williamson


Leo’s Map of Monsters: The Spitfang Lizard features the continuing adventures of the young Guardian’s apprentice. His job is to protect the village from the monsters that lurk in the surrounding forest. It is also his job to help ensure that the villagers never get to find out that the monsters even exist!  In that regard however, his best friend Jacob is starting to get curious about what Leo does all day.
Whenever a monster gets too close to the village walls Leo must venture out to stop them.  He has inherited from the Guardian a magical map that helps him first to find the monster and then do battle with it.  The latest threat comes in the form of the deadly Spitfang Lizard. The only advice he is given is that the Spitfang will spit at first, but then they bite. So, if the Spitfang’s throat begins to swell up…it’s best to keep clear!
This is the follow-up to Kris Humphrey’s equally compelling and enjoyable series debut, Leo’s Book of Monsters: The Armoured Goretusk, also available in the Bookwagon on-line store.
Illustrator of the series Pete Williamson offers readers a brilliant drawing along video based on the books in this YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCiQAG8KuFo
