Chameleon is sad because he doesn’t have a color of his own. He borrows yellow from the sun, pink from an orchid, and orange from a tiger, but will there be enough color for everyone? With gorgeous, colorful illustrations and a message about the power of giving, The Chameleon’s True Colors is the picture book every family needs on their shelf.
About the Author
Moving from Moscow to London at five years old, Yuliya Pankratova went on to graduate with degrees in English literature and illustration, getting her first job in advertising and launching her own diversity and inclusion business. Maybe that's why belonging is such a key theme in her picture books, which she illustrates with a painterly and dynamic style.
“A beautiful book about cherishing your own identity while admiring the beauty of those around you. A valuable lesson, wonderfully illustrated by Yuliya Pankratova in her inimitable style. A favourite at bedtime, as well as on the display shelf.”
—Miranda McCabe, architect
