Children may already know about chameleons’ awesome ability to change colors, but this appealing volume also offers lots of fascinating, lesser-known information about these popular reptiles. Chameleons’ tongues, for example, can be nearly twice the length of their bodies. And their tongues are fast and strong, too—so fast and strong, in fact, that large chameleons can catch young birds with them. Each spread introduces a facet of chameleon life and pairs it with a striking full-page color photograph. Captions and text boxes add interesting facts along the way (“One kind of chameleon . . . spends 8 to 9 months in its egg, but only lives 4 to 5 months after hatching.”). Back matter includes a glossary, recommended sources, and an index.

Series Review
Outstanding large, color photos are the draw for this series. In particular, the images in Chameleons have a definite “wow” factor. These brilliantly colored reptiles leap from the pages with their rainbow hues. The images, however, are not for the squeamish: in Komodo Dragons, the reptile is shown devouring no-longer-recognizable prey, and a photo in Gila Monsters shows a furry creature being consumed. That aside, the close-up of a nocturnal gecko’s eye or the charming photo of romantic iguanas will mesmerize children. The solid texts are equally good. Each volume begins with an introduction, followed by sections on body parts, survival tactics, habitats, diets, life cycles, and more. “What a Wild Life!” text boxes deliver additional facts (e.g., “Gila monster venom doesn’t hurt other Gila monsters”). These high-interest introductions will delight for report writers and browsers.
