'Overall, Leon the Chameleon would make a colourful addition to collections focusing on appreciating differences and, as an art/literature connection.' http://www.umanitoba.ca/outreach/cm/vol8/no16/leon.html

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 155074867X, Hardcover)

Leon the chameleon has a problem. When the other little chameleons turn green, yellow or blue -- he turns red, purple or orange! Leon doesn't turn the opposite color on purpose. He just can't help it. Being different makes Leon feel lonely. One day, the little chameleons go exploring and lose their way. As the parents anxiously search for their little ones, they suddenly spot a speck of color far off in the distance. It's Leon! And thanks to his brilliant hue, the little chameleons are rescued. This time, being different makes Leon feel proud! Leon the Chameleon is a charming story that also explores the basic elements of color. At the end of the book, a color wheel displays primary colors and their complementary hues.

Leon is different from the other chameleons--when they turn the same color as their environment, Leon turns a complimentary color--but his difference turns out to be a life-saving quality when all the little chameleons lose their way.
