The Lovereading4Kids comment
Prize winning illustrator Emily Gravett triumphs again in her witty story of how a lonely chameleon does what he does best in a desperate attempt to make a new friend. Changing colour comes naturally to the blue chameleon so he tries yellow and says hi to a banana, pink to greet a cockatoo, brown to say Howdy to a handsome cowboy boot… Nothing seems to work until the triumphant and delightful final spread when the chameleon finds another chameleon – just like him!
Blue Chameleon by Emily Gravett
He can turn himself into anything and appear to fit in anywhere, but it seems that neither the swirly snail, the green grasshopper nor the stripy sock want to be friends. Will he ever find someone to talk to? Someone just like him? With a subtle and witty interplay between words and illustrations, this introduction to colours and shapes (and chameleons) is sure to delight everyone, from the youngest child upwards. This is another triumph by prize-winning Emily Gravett.
Review of ‘Blue Chameleon’ by Books for Keeps [4 stars]
Gravett’s affinity with the picture book form is evident once again in this latest offering. Less elaborate than many of her ideas, this one focuses on playful visual dialogue across each double-page spread as our flexible friend takes on the characteristics of various objects and creatures before revealing his true identity. This is a book that works on several levels. Best of all, it is an introduction to shapes and colours, visual thinking. Elegantly designed with plenty of white space, including subtle use of spot lamination, this is one of Gravett’s best books to date.
