“Chameleon, you’re so ugly. You’re a disgrace to us all!”
is the continual cry of the river community.
Over time, Chameleon comes to believe these cruel words. Lonely and hopeless, he dreads the dawning of each new day. But fate intervenes when he meets a lark and an old man who set in motion events that transforms him. The singing Chameleon is an inspirational and compelling retelling of a Malawian tale by internationally respected author and storyteller, Gcina Mhlope, with bright and bold illustrations by well-known artist, Kalle Becker. The insecurity of Chameleon and the unkind behavior of the river community will strike a chord with readers both young and old.
