Except for catching flies and changing colors occasionally, this chameleon doesn't find life very exciting. When a surprise visit to the zoo makes this wistful lizard realize it can change its shape and size as easily as its color, it ends up wanting to be like all the animals in the zoo at once--with hilarious results. Full-color illustrations.
Like all of Carle's books it is the pictures that are the real hero in this book. The story has themes of being content with who you are while introducing concepts such as camoflauge and the life of lizards. The text is not that strong by itself but children love the funny pictures of the mixed up creature that the chameleon becomes as he wishes for the body parts of interesting zoo animals.
Great simple book bringing a very important message...how to be yourself...and be happy and proud about it! I found my husband laughing our loud while reading this book to our baby! Great colorful drawings, with all the magic of Eric Carle's illustrations. Great addition to your Eric Carle's collection
