For the first time in paperback, here's the charming story of a chameleon who, in search of his own color, finds something even more special. Vivid illustrations and spare prose make this gentle story a perfect read-aloud. Full color.
From the Publisher:
A little chameleon is distressed that he doesn't have his own color like other animals.
Color concepts, change, and friendship are all addressed in Leo Lionni's A COLOR OF HIS OWN. A young chameleon finds himself changing color wherever he goes, and longs for one beautifully permanent color. Finding a lovely green leaf and deciding to stay with it forever, he discovers that as the seasons change, so does the leaf. Meeting another chameleon helps him to understand exactly what is going on. Collage illustrations accompany the text.
Author Bio
Leo Lionni
Although Leo Lionni is a popular author and illustrator of picture books, many people are surprised to find that he did not write his first book until he was a grandfather. Lionni and his family lived in many different places during his childhood including Brussels, Philadelphia, and Genoa. He attended the University of Zurich and married Nora Maffi. In 1939 he, his wife, and their two children moved to Philadelphia where Lionni worked for an advertising agency and was also the head of the graphics design department of the Parsons School of Design. In 1959, at age 50, he returned to Italy. His first picture book, LITTLE BLUE AND LITTLE YELLOW was originally created as a story to amuse his grandchildren during a tedious train ride. SWIMMY, one of Lionni's personal favorites, was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1964.
