Konte Chameleon, Fine, Fine, Fine!
by Cristina Kessler
The best picture books are those that match compelling stories with dynamic illustrations. It’s a rare combination, but it’s one to be found in Konte Chameleon, Fine, Fine Fine! … Kessler’s retelling of a folktale from West Africa about why the chameleon never hurries, makes such good use of odd, lyric sounds and repetitive language that it’s almost impossible not to read or sing the story aloud.
