?  About our Ebooks


As a chameleon, it's in Carlos' nature to change his colours in order to fit into his surroundings. Carlos is usually green, but can turn pink to join the flamingos, blue to match the frogs, and spotty to resemble the jaguars. When the other animals find out that Carlos has been changing his colours in order to fit in, they reassure him that his own colour is beautiful and that he doesn't need to change who he is to be accepted and loved by his friends.

Part of the Truth & Tails series, which aims to eliminate prejudices and encourage acceptance in young children aged 4-8, the story of Carlos and his friends is accompanied by hand-drawn, watercolour illustrations.


'Carlos' story will help children to celebrate what makes them unique and encourage an enthusiastic acceptance of self and others. A fun and invaluable resource for teachers and parents alike.'
- Dr Pooky Knightsmith, Child & Adolescent Mental Health Specialist, and Author of Self-Harm and Eating Disorders in Schools

'Roxy the Raccoon is an endearing character that children can relate to. She faces some challenges in her day to day life but with her friends making some simple changes she can join in too! A great accessible story to encourage children to consider disability and the role they can play in building an inclusive society.'
- Kate Bradley, Head of Autism & Inclusion at a Primary School, and co-author of the 101 Inclusive & SEN Lessons series.
