Product description

Review

"Lionni's signature watercolors span the rainbow in this story of a chameleon who, while searching for his identity, finds a friend with whom he can share his changeable nature." —Publishers Weekly

"As captivating now as it was when first published in 1975." —Children's Literature

From the Back Cover

Now available in a board book edition, the charming story of a chameleon searching for his own color, who ends up finding a true friend.
Elephants are gray. Pigs are pink. Only the chameleon has no color of his own. He is purple like the heather, yellow like a lemon, even black and orange striped like a tiger! Then one day a chameleon has an idea to remain one color forever by staying on the greenest leaf he can find. But in the autumn, the leaf changes from green to yellow to red . . . and so does the chameleon. When another chameleon suggests they travel together, he learns that companionship is more important than having a color of his own. No matter where he goes with his new friend, they will always be alike.
Colorful illustrations and spare prose make this charming love story perfect for a board book edition to introduce the heartwarming fables of Lionni to toddlers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the story
By R and N on 25 May 2020
Love the idea behind this book. It’s sturdy and I read it to our baby in my belly. If you are buying it to teach colours, I wouldn’t recommend it as the illustration colours are a little off(refer photos, one star removed for that). We bought it more for the simple story, which we love.
