How the Lizard got it's Name

By: Jesse and Dylan X.

Once upon a time there was a man who thought he was cool. So some guys dared him to climb a tall tree. He climbed it and a parrot knocked him down and he fell into a river. He stayed under for five hours and when he came out, he had turned into a lizard. All the people ran away. That's why you always see lizards fall out of trees.
