This colourful book by Leonie Roberts and Mike Byrne is about a little girl with a pet chameleon. She loves her pet but he causes lots of trouble because he’s constantly changing colour and getting lost!
The little girl tries to explain that chameleons are supposed to change colour but her mummy just doesn’t understand and threatens to take him away. After the chameleon gets lost at school and gets her in to trouble with her teachers, her mummy decides enough is enough and takes him to the vets.
Will the little girl have to say goodbye to her lovely pet or will the vet be able to help?
The tight rhyme scheme, cute story and fantastic illustrations make this a great book for toddlers – particularly if they are already a fan of lizards!
I love reading this one with Ivy as we play ‘spot the chameleon’ on every page which she finds really funny. His clever camouflage also gives us the opportunity to reinforce her knowledge of colours and she has grasped the concept that he changes colour in order to hide and stay safe.
