Ten-year-old 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. Read carefully and you just may find out who you are too.
"What an enchanting story! Africa comes alive in Dr. Myhre's delightful tale of a boy, a chameleon, and a dog whose adventures draw you into a deeper adventure of faith."?
