CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • Younger children will enjoy hunting for the chameleon that can be found on each spread, which may be challenging since it changes color and posture from page to page. Adults may consult the four pages of notes written in small type at book’s end to learn a fact or two about each animal. However, the text is really a supplement to the splendid illustrations.
    –School Library Journal
  • An unusual, and unusually handsome, offering.
    –Booklist
