Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3—Expert bug-hunting chameleons Willy and Wally both catch a plump bumblebug at the same time. With their tongues stuck to the winged treat, they argue in a lisp: "But I saw it first. You did noth. Did thoo!" A full-scale battle ensues, complete with "scary faces," name-calling ("Dragonlipsh! Shkunk Cabbage!"), and pulled tails. While the former friends are absorbed in their argument, the insect escapes. The squabbling pair put their differences aside when they find themselves dangling from a branch above hungry crocodiles. Based on Perlman's animated film short Dinner for Two, this book has strong visual appeal. Comical Photoshop illustrations feature sidebar panels that replay the melee between the bulging-eyed chameleons and dizzy, cotton-candy-pink bug. A fun book to share at storytime.—Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada END

A cute, funny story demonstrating how we should share and be kind to one another.
Two lizards catch the same juicy bug and they both refuse to let go. It effect the whole
forest/jungle not just the two lizards. They see the error of their ways and make amends. My
library students really loved it (K-3rd)

If you're tired of the kids fighting, try this book. I know my six-year old will get right into this and get the message while laughing all along. Two chameleons fight (humorously) almost to the death over one bug. At last they call a truce, decide to share and, best of all, make up to everyone around them for the trouble they caused. That's what gets this book five stars - for helping little ones to think beyond themselves and see that sharing benefits everyone.

My son is 3 1/2 years old and this is one of his favorite books. There are a lot of noise words on the pages and he laughs along throughout the book. Plus there are comic-like sections on a lot of the pages. This is a great book with a good message.
