The Lovereading4Kids comment
A very small but very brave Gecko needs to think up a way of protecting her gecko eggs from nasty predators. How can she trick Snakey and Rat into thinking that she is not alone? Clever gecko comes up with a plan just using her voice and the amazing echo of the cave she lives in. A neatly told story of well-used cunning told in rhyming verses. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Gecko's Echo by Lucy Rowland
Once there was a gecko and she lived inside a cave. She was very, very small but she was also really brave. To stop sneaky animals stealing her precious eggs, Mummy Gecko threatens the wrath of ONE HUNDRED ANGRY GECKOS. But ...are there really one hundred geckos? And, if there aren't, how will she protect her family?
A mischievous tale of trickery and motherly courage, perfect for fans of Little Beaver and the Echo and The Gruffalo.
