Gecko - Ken Douglas

 

What started out fun has deteriorated into incredibly irritating.

 

This may be a DNF - there are less annoying monster stories out there.

 

And if he calls geckos slimy lizard things one more time I'm going to scream.

(I'd throw  it across the room, but I can't afford a replacement Kindle at the moment)

They may be related to lizards, but they are not slimy.

That would be a newt.
