Litfuse Review: A Chameleon, a Boy, and a Quest by:J. A. Myhre

A Chameleon, a Boy, and a Quest
About the Book:
The Adventure of a Lifetime

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. Along with Mu, you will walk through Africa, encountering good and evil. Read carefully and you just may find out who you are too.

My Review:
 A sweet story very similar to Cinderella. 10 year old Mu, is an orphan being raised by his great uncle. He feels that his life would always consist of the people there and the treatment that they dish out on a daily basis. 

 This book is a little over 100 pages and I gave it to me tween boys to read. They are enjoying it. As you read you are transported on Mu's journey right along with him. He is from Africa and the writing is so appealing that you feel that you are there and experiencing this with him. 

 With threads of all things Godlike the author manages to get goodness into your children's hearts that show them how life is transformed for this young boy and how he can change yours too!

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Litfuse.
