Summary:  A chameleon at a zoo envies the traits of other animals and imagines what it might look like if it had the skills and body parts of other animals.
Butterfly’s notes:  It may be fun to imagine, but at the end of the book the chameleon realizes it would be better off to remain a chameleon.  Though it may still wish it had the abilities of other animals, the chameleon finds it is happy to be itself.
