A Chameleon, a Boy, and a Quest by J.A. Myhre

About the Book
Mu, orphaned as a toddler, has lived his entire life in the heart of Africa. For as long as he can remember, he has served in the household of a great-uncle where he is unloved and ignored. In his drudgery-filled life, Mu has little hope of happiness and little hope that anything will ever change. But one day everything does change. On his way to draw water one morning, Mu is astonished when a chameleon greets him by name and announces that they will embark on a quest together. And what a quest it turns out to be! Mu faces danger and finds unexpected allies as they journey through an ever-changing landscape. Through his adventure, Mu learns many things about himself. Along with Mu, you will walk through Africa, encountering good and evil. Read carefully and you just may find out who you are too.

J.A. Myhre’s A Chameleon, a Boy, and a Quest offers a wonderfully adventurous tale for children and adults alike. Mu and his talking chameleon friend embark on a quest involving good and evil, set against the backdrop of African landscape. I loved the exotic and unique feel of the story and once I started reading, I couldn’t stop - and since the book is relatively short, it was easy to read in a sitting or two. Overall, A Chameleon, a Boy, and a Quest is a delightful read, and I would have no problem recommending it to interested readers.
