Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–The humorous and slightly bizarre McNilly family jumps right off the pages in this delightful romp. During her pregnancy, Milly eats Cream of Chameleon soup for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. When baby Camilla arrives, she has the characteristics of a chameleon–obvious to readers but not to her parents or teacher. She camouflages herself whenever she wants to avoid things, like liver and onions or assignments at school. The plot gets even wackier when Milly starts eating Cream of Pterodactyl soup, and soon Camilla has a brother. Terry looks just like a pterodactyl, but his parents think he is perfect, just like Camilla. The art is vibrant and original, showing Camilla morphing into other colors. A fresh story about an unusual child who gets into some bizarre situations.–JoAnn Jonas, Chula Vista Public Library, San Diego, CA

The art is vibrant and original ? a fresh story. (School Library Journal)

The exaggerated, quirky artwork’s the real star here in scene after scene, where bug-eyed, blonde pony-tailed Camilla is cleverly camouflaged in the various backgrounds. (Kirkus Reviews)

I read this at the end of our Chameleon Unit for my 2nd grade class. They loved it and many kids have since borrowed it for SSR time.
