The other enemy of both ants and lizards, the cat Virgil.

About the Author

I am the eldest of three boys born in the British West Indies. My foremost passion is writing; I have been doing so since I learned the alphabet. I have written three books, with a fourth and fifth on the way this year. My writings concentrate on positive situations and contain no foul language or adult situations.
