Description


Chameleon can turn himself into anything and appear to fit in anywhere, but it seems that neither the swirly snail, the green grasshopper nor the striped sock want to be friends. Will he ever find someone to talk to? Someone just like him?

With a subtle and witty interplay between words and illustrations this introduction to colors and shapes (and chameleons!) is sure to delight kids of all ages.

Praise For…


"As always, Gravett's art charms; colored pencil lines on rough paper give the pages warmth, and the chameleon's "disguises" repay attention as readers spot similarities to and differences from the things the chameleon mimics."--Publishers Weekly

"This elaboration of the simplest of concepts suggests multiple uses, from exploring the moods in the spare, expressive art to recapturing the events, and the minimal dialogue, in dramatic play."--The Horn Book

"Both chameleons and friendship populate children's picture books liberally, but this one's well worth adding to the shelf."--Kirkus Reviews

"A clever concept book with emotional punch and magnificent art is a rare treat. In Gravett’s latest triumph, readers meet a despondent chameleon...While the simple text is appropriate for toddlers, the book is clever enough for older children to enjoy. Gravett’s design and art are exceptional."--School Library Journal
