Though Scary the Iguana was a scary creature, he was scared of everything. He lived by a dock, under a rock, and it was next to the waters of the Blue Hole. The Blue Hole was in Big Pine Key in the Florida Keys. Penny the pelican, Annie the alligator, and Tommy the turtle all lived in Blue Hole and were Scary's friends. One day Scary was warming himself on the rock when Penny the pelican called him from her perch. Scary got scared and ran back under his rock. Anything and everything scared Scary. Will Scary finally find his courage? If so, how? Let's read the story to find out.

Scary the Scared Iguana: Featuring the Creatures of the Florida Keys by Marin Resnick is a fascinating book that is informative and educational with interesting details about the Florida Keys and the creatures of the Florida Keys. Children will be pulled into the book and will learn about the ecology of the Florida Keys and the animals residing there in an interesting way. Eric Labacz breathes life into the characters in the story with his wonderful illustrations and gives them each a personality of their own.

This is a good book for tutors and parents to introduce their children to the Florida Keys in an entertaining way so that they will become fascinated and curious to learn more about the life that exists there. The story has adventure and action, and children will find it entertaining and exciting.
