About This Book
Who can resist a pocket-sized, bad-tempered, color-changing, swivel-eyed, snail-paced, long-tongued sharpshooter? Kids won't be able to after reading Martin Jenkins's amazing portrait of chameleons.
With the eye of a scientist and the enthusiasm of a child, Martin Jenkins reveals the very cool facts about chameleons' life and anatomy. Did you know, for example, that most of a chameleon's eye is covered in skin, like the rest of its body? It sees through a tiny peephole in the middle!
There is so much to know about chameleons, and much of it is right here in this enthusiastic and informative book. Many of the 120 different kinds of this lizard are pictured, as well as facts about and habits of the cool chameleon.
Sue Shields's vivid watercolor close-ups bring a chameleon's unique features into startling focus.
