Gabby is an outgoing, groovy gecko-until she goes into the woods with Wiley the Wizard Lizard. To make sure his bad magic is not revealed, the wicked wizard casts a spell of silence on her. She feels powerless to tell her secret. The reader then accompanies Gabby on her journey to find her voice. A delightful story in itself, the book will resonate with traumatized children who remain locked behind walls of silence. This therapeutic narrative gently invites children to talk about traumatic experiences and ultimately empowers them to overcome their victimization.
  • I received this book in a timely manner and when I wasn't happy with the quality of the book because it was a little damaged on the spine this seller went out of their way to get me another book that was in better condition. This book is something every counselor who works with abused children should have in their library.

  • good book

  • I prosecuted a man for raping his 5 y.o. daughter. She started seeing a counselor when she was 7. Her counselor told me she read Gabby the Gecko to the little girl, and she immediately "got it." She took an intense interest in the story, and asked to have it read to her several times. She insisted on reading the book to her mother, and several times to her 12 y.o. brother. "Gabby is like me," the girl told her counselor. Her brother did not know that his sister had been raped by their dad, and he thought it was just a dumb "talking animals" book that his little sister liked for no reason.

    The counselor told me that children who have not been molested find the story boring and pointless. All the action is caused by the "bad magic" the evil wizard does to Gabby, but what this bad magic is is never explained. The result is there is a big hole in the story that unmolested children don't understand.

    When the jury went back to deliberate, the vote was 9 to 3 to convict. One of the pro-conviction jurors urged the other 3 to read Gabby The Gecko, which I had introduced into evidence. All three said when they got about half way thru the book they realized that only a child who had been molested would understand the significance of the story, and they voted to convict. In Texas, the defendant has the option of being sentence by the judge or the jury, and the defendant opted for the jury to sentence him. They gave him 99 years. He will be released from prison when he is 156 years old, if he lives that long.

    In effect, this book is a diagnostic test. Only kids who have been molested understand the story. Their reaction to the story cannot be taught to them by their mother who is mad at the perpetrator (a common defense in these cases) because the mother has almost certainly never heard of the book, or knows the child's counselor will read it to her. Every counselor should read this book to young sex abuse victims, and report their reaction to the police when they are investigating the crime. It is great evidence. I am a big fan of Gabby the Gecko.
