Chameleons are Cool

This book is about chameleons. It talks about how they change colors. They don?t change colors because they don?t want to get eaten. They change colors because they get angry, or cold, or hot, or sick. Some chameleons are big, some chameleons are small. Some chameleons have sharp noses. Their skin is bumpy. The author spent a lot of time exploring chameleons.

I think the author likes chameleons because he wrote a book about them. I do not like chameleons because they are bumpy. My favorite part is when the chameleons fight because they change colors when they are angry. I like the illustrations because they are colorful and lifelike.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about chameleons. I especially recommend this book to my three brothers Maurice, David, and E.J., because they like chameleons a lot.
