ANOTHER AMAZING KIRKUS REVIEW

 “Rita thinks she is a chameleon just like her Uncle William,” but her bright, unchanging color and strange habits (like snoring while she sleeps on a zebra) don’t exactly make her blend into the background. The identity crisis is solved with the help of her animal friends, and the whole affair concludes with a festive dance party as Rita celebrates who she really is. The message is carefully inserted into dense layers of gorgeously textured art and buoyed by plenty of surrealist touches. A giraffe wears boots; a duck flies by, calmly embedded within a hot-air balloon; and a photo on a wall suddenly sprouts a long, stringy mustache. The app’s animations and extra features are beautifully presented and fit right in with the rest of the story. If that weren’t enough, each page has an optional countdown that tells readers exactly how many interactive goodies are available. Activate all of them and an award notification pops up that, remarkably, doesn’t break up the flow of the story.  Rita’s realization that being a lizard is great is carried effortlessly by all the terrific visual asides along the way. (iPad storybook app. 3-10) ”  Read the review performed by Kirkus @ https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/irene-blasco-grau/rita-lizard/
