Synopsis

The Hoppameleon by Paul Geraghty

When the world is still quite young, there was a sleepy, slurpy swamp. And in it swam a very odd-looking creature . . . As he makes his way in the world, this very odd-looking creature, with a long sticky tongue, who can hunt like a chameleon and sing like a parrot, isn't quite sure who or what he is. Nor is anyone else. But he does know that he wants to find a friend who is just like himself. `An enchanting tale from the winner of the Children's Book Award, and a great book for teaching about citizenship.' School Librarian

Reviews

Beautifully told and illustrated, this is one to treasure * Early Years Educator * A wonderful book to share with young children. The text is superb and the gradual building up of the creature's name is irresistible. * Carousel * Paul Geraghty is an artist who never puts a foot wrong. * Bookseller *
