Reviewed by Debra Williams

Sebastian the Chameleon is tired of blending in. Of course, it’s what Chameleons do. But after attending the animal disco he has had enough, and following some narrow escapes, he wants to stand out. And stand out he does. With minimal text, one illustration depicts an accident which allows Sebastian his brilliant chance-just what will it be?  How will he be noticed? Surprisingly, it allows Sebastian a chance to not only be noticed, but to give the rest of the crowd a a helpful opportunity to continue their disco dancing fun and saves the day.

This is a great story and the wonderful illustrations just pop with humour, vibrance and colour. It will be enjoyed by those in the 5+ year age group.
