Camilla Chameleon

Colleen Sydor
Pascale Constantin

Camilla is a little strange-looking. But she's one talented ... girl. She can pick up a hopscotch rock without even bending over. She can look at her teacher with one eye and read a comic book with the other. And, best of all, she can blend in perfectly with her surroundings --- so that no one, not even her parents, can tell she's there.

Camouflaging sure comes in handy when it's time for her to go to the doctor or clean out the class hamster cage for her teacher. But one day Camilla blows her cover ... and finds herself in the spotlight.

Colleen Sydor's spirited story and Pascale Constantin's brilliantly quirky illustrations bring to life a wonderfully weird girl who discovers that standing out isn't so bad after all.
