Inhaltsangabe: Published in 1991, the only children's book devoted to the resplendent chameleon is an ALA Notable Book, and NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children, and a Booklist Editor's Choice. All the beauty and strangeness of these amazing reptiles is captured with "dramatic, beautifully assembled pictures" (Horn Book) and simple text. Full-color photographs.
From Kirkus Reviews: Dramatic full-color photos and a brief but lucid text provide an inviting introduction to some of the 100 species of true chameleons that inhabit Africa, Madagascar, Asia, and the Mediterranean coast of Europe. Vivid green, red, and black backgrounds enhance the jewel-like aqua, orange, and green colors of these ancient, often endangered reptiles. Close-ups show the specialized fused toes that help the chameleon grip, the spectacular sticky forked tongue (often longer than the animal's body), and the eyes that rotate separately in order to help locate food and avoid enemies. Martin includes information on life cycles and habits, and makes a strong plea for protecting habitats. Unfortunately, scientific names and the size and location of species are omitted. Still, a feast for the eye and the imagination. Index. (Nonfiction. 6+) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
