This book is about a chameleon who goes to a zoo. He sees all kinds of beautiful animals. He gets all mixed up when he wishes he could be like the other animals. The lesson he learns is that you are fine the way you are.

Grant's favorite part was when the chameleon wished he could see like a giraffe.The chameleon grew a really long neck. He made a text to text connection to the book Double Trouble in WallaWalla when the girl was making up words. They reminded him of the animals in this book.Andrew's favorite part was when the chameleon was all mixed up. It looked really funny.

We would recommend this book to people who like funny books about animals.
