Children who enjoy a bit of action while reading will enjoy following along with the commands in the story (telling Leon what color he should turn next, etc. In this delightful interactive board book, filled with vibrant neon artwork, children can help Leon on his journey by counting his steps, sending him to sleep and giving him lots of reassurance when he’s feeling down. I would simply remove it from our shelf but as she enjoys the visual stimulation I have been forced to tell it in my own way, where I present it as a chameleon that goes around exploring different cultures and goes home to tell his friend. Leisa also has a handful of exciting non-fiction and picture books titles on the way – inspired by the natural world and its strange and wonderful creatures.You guys were so fab and Dawn was such a lovely presence in the schools - I will absolutely be in touch next time I'm in your neck of the woods. She moved to London in 1988 to study illustration and fine art at St Martin's College and the Royal College of Art and ended up staying in England for 17 years. In a second picture book, a maladapted chameleon is stuck in a predicament that brings to mind Raymond Chandler’s brilliant line about a fellow looking “about as inconspicuous as a tarantula on a slice of angel food cake. When NYC hit its punk stride in the mid 1970s, the one-of-a-kind ‘Neon’ Leon Matthews was already in the thick of it.

Her first book, Blue Planet II, is part of a major new children’s non-fiction series in collaboration with BBC Earth and published by Puffin. He is orange when he is in the green trees, he is orange when he is in the yellow desert, and he is orange when he is in the mountains. This book didn't go in the direction I was expecting as I fear the underlying message may be that to fit in and feel "comfortable" a person needs to stay with people who are like them. Also, the book has so many different approaches for kids learning systems that kind of snuck their way in- kind of like counting to ten before turning the page.Eventually, he is able to find orange plants on which he is camouflaged, and he even meets another orange chameleon. The title to be read and discussed is sign-posted and on sale for the whole of the previous month (with a discount for those who make it known they intend to come) and everybody is welcome, whether first-timer, part-timer or regular-timer.
