Art doesn't know what to do when a new pet is brought into the house.
This book provides examples of:
- Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Art is yellow with orange, purple, and green splotches, which doesn't match any particular gecko in real life.
- Attention Whore: Art is so used to getting the attention he gets scared of getting replaced when a new pet shows up.
- Disappeared Dad: Mr. Johnson is never mentioned or even seen in the book.
- First-Name Basis: Art's full name, Art Gecko, is used only once by Brett.
- Indy Escape: Art does this, though instead of a boulder it's dust.
- Wall Crawl: Unsurprisingly Art the Gecko can do this and does so to escape his habitat.
