Being different can make you feel lonely or proud. Everything depends on
how you view yourself. Leon is embarrassed to be different, so he hides
from the other little chameleons. Leon's problem is that he changes
to the "opposite" color of what he should. One day, he
secretly follows the others out of the forest. When Leon's
"opposite" color helps the parents locate and rescue all the
lost little chameleons, he is a hero. Beautiful, vivid, colorful
illustrations enhance the text. Ages 3-6.--L.F.
