Manchester Museum is proud to present our very first children’s book!  ‘The Boy Who Really Really Really Loves Lizards‘ is the charming tale of Oliver, his love of all things reptile and a day-trip to a rather familiar location. The book has just been published especially to coincide with the re-opening of our live animals Vivarium.

Author John Hamilton is a local painter and printmaker who exhibits his work across the UK, Europe and in the USA. He recently completed an MA in Children’s Book Illustration and this is his first book.  John spends much of his spare time at the Vivarium with his son, the real-life Oliver.

The book is now readily available to purchase from the museum shop or online at: http://shop.manchestergalleries.org/the-boy-who-really-really-really-loves-lizards-by-john-hamilton-316-p.asp
