Mixed-Up Chameleon, The

Mixed-Up Chameleon, The

by Eric Carle Illustrated by Eric Carle

Except for catching flies and changing colors occasionally, this chameleon doesn't find life very exciting. When a surprise visit to the zoo makes this wistful lizard realize it can change its shape and size as easily as its color, it ends up wanting to be like all the animals in the zoo at once — with hilarious results. Full-color illustrations.
