This story is about a chameleon that turns into different animals and different colors. Then the Chameleon is hungry and it turns colors. When it is not, it is green. That means that it ate. When the Chameleon goes to the zoo it wishes it could be like the other animals. It wishes it could be like a polar bear, a fox, a fish and a lot of other animals.See how the chameleon changes different colors.

I liked the part when the chameleon turns into different animals because I liked the colors. I think that the illustrations are excellent because the illustrator uses really bight colors. My favorite part was when the chameleon turns into different animals because the chameleon wishes to be like the animals.

I recommend this book to children who are eight years old. The story is very interesting and people who like making wishes would like this book.
