This whimsical story takes kids back to a time when the world was still young. Its great swamp is filled with animals of every kind. One of them is a very odd looking fellow with a very odd problem: He doesn't know who he is. As he makes his way in the swamp, this odd looking creature discovers that he can hunt with a long, sticky tongue—just like a chameleon. But he also hops, and chameleons don't hop. He decides that he must not be a chameleon. Instead, he calls himself a Hoppameleon, but he still isn't sure who or what he really is. All the other swamp creatures are puzzled by him too. The only thing he does know is that he wants to find a friend who is just like he is. Kids will love this book's gentle humor and vividly colored illustrations that evoke nature's beauty on every page. And gradually, they will be able to figure out what kind of animal the Hoppameleon really is!
