Leon the Chameleon (Kids Can Press, $14.95 hardcover, young readers) by Melanie Watt is the result of a colour theory project the author undertook while studying graphic design at UQAM. The beautiful bold lines and saturated colour of the illustrations introduce little ones to the colour wheel. Leon, who is always changing to the wrong colour, helps too. mRb
