Scary the Iguana is one scary looking fellow. But despite his fearsome facade, he is scared of everything. One day, his turtle friend, Tommy, finds himself in trouble. Will Scary be able to find his courage and save his friend?

Marin Resnick is a writer and photographer enjoying the urban-country lifestyle of Hunterdon County, New Jersey. Marin and her daughter, JR, spent many summers on the shores of Islamorada, Florida watching the real Scary the iguana sun himself on their dock, running away from them when they tried feeding him bananas. They also enjoyed taking trips to the Blue Hole in Big Pine Key Florida where they'd walk the trail and look for alligators and turtles. This is Marin's debut book. When not chasing the reptiles of the Florida Keys, JR spends lots of time with her favorite furry friend, Mino.

Five Star Review From Readers Favorite

Posted by Scary the Scared Iguana on November 5, 2019

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.  -- Mamta Madhavan, Reader's Favorite
