Adventurous, fearless, and full of attitude, "Lopez gives Tomato an outlaw integrity that Thelma and Louise only hinted at" (San Francisco Chronicle).

Tomato Rodriguez hops on her motorcycle and embarks on the ultimate sea-to-shining-sea all-girl adventure -- a story in that combines all the best parts of Alice in Wonderland and Easy Rider as Tomato crosses the country in search of the meaning of life, love, and the perfect post office.

Flaming Iguanas is a hilarious novel that combines text, line drawings, rubber stamp art, and a serious dose of attitude. The result is a wild and wonderful ride unlike any you you've ever taken before.

About the Author

Erika Lopez lives a much too happy life in San Francisco being the sidekick to her two best friends, Mark and Mary. They all live on the same block. They walk big, leaky dogs and forget to whisper when they talk about other people's butts. Along with her sidekick adventures, she is the author and illustrator of several books, including Lap Dancing for Mommy and They Call Me Mad Dog!: A Story for Bitter, Lonely People.
