Who Am I?

An endearing and funny tale about a chameleon trying to find his place in a colourful world, illustrated by the renowned Tony Ross.

One hot day in the middle of a jungle a strange little creature hatches out of an egg. 'Who am I?" he asks himself. Off he goes plodding through the tall grass to find out. He meets many animals but none of them are like him. Will he ever find out who he is and why he keeps changing colours?
