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 Emily Gravett's Blue Chameleon is an introduction to colours and shapes (and chameleons!) which is sure to delight everyone, from the youngest child upwards. Blue Chameleon is another triumph by prize-winning Emily Gravett.

The Blue Chameleon is a lovely book and a beautifully illustrated story about a lonely chameleon looking for a friend. It has few words, teaching readers about colours and shapes and how feeling can be interpreted in colour.

Beautifully illustrated story book with few words. It's a simple story about a sad , lonely chameleon who changed colours and mimics other creatures and things  like ball, boots , sock, fish to make friends. 
Fabulous picture book for young children.

Chameleon is blue, in colour and mood. He's feeling lonely because he has no one to play with. He spends the book trying to make a friend and, in doing so, changes his colour and shape to match everything and everyone he encounters.

The text is beautifully simple: two words per double page - a colour and an object - and the book is a lovely introduction to colours and patterns. I also love the variety of things that Chameleon tries to befriend, from a cowboy boot to a cockatoo.

Emily Gravett's illustrations are stunning and brilliantly imaginative; I loved Chameleon's different poses as he moulded himself into different shapes. There's gentle humour in the illustrations but there's a sadness too as Chameleon becomes increasingly despondent at his lack of success. Towards the end, he almost disappears as he turns white and vanishes into the page. Luckily, for Chameleon and the reader, there's a joyful, full-colour happy ending.
