I've remembered that the book is "A Million Chameleons," and it's hard to feel down about a world in which a work like that exists.
Hope you are having a good day. :)
I've never seen the book "A Million Chameleons" but just the description makes me wonder if you have ever seen the work of Belle Yang? You have probably seen her blogs and posts here at Red Room, but just in case you haven't, I hope you don't mind me suggesting you take a look at her main Red Room page here:
All the best to you!
Ryoma, that's a good comparison, and one I've thought of. I've never read "A Million Chameleons" yet to a small child who didn't love it and want to hear it again and again, and I think Belle Yang's books work the same way. If I get the nanny job I've applied for (with several small children), I'll buy some of her books to bring along.
