Why the Chameleon Changes Color
By Kenneth - Aged 10
Joliet - Illinois, USA

Golden green skin ChameleonThere once was an animal that had a golden green color called Chameleon. Almost everyone liked him and had always looked up to him.

As I said, everyone liked him except for five animals. Scorpion, Spider, Bat, Snake and Komodo hated him.Snake

They planned to take away his color. Then Komodo had an evil idea. " Let’s put magic dye into his system," said Komodo. Everyone loved his idea.

So the next morning the five devious animals invited Chameleon to a party.  When the time came, Chameleon wasn't suspicious at all. He enjoyed himself.

That's why the Chameleon changes color and these five animals are considered bad.
