Xander, The Panther

Xander, The Panther


Written by Grace Buka, a charming book perfect for introducing young children to the breathtaking variety of animals. 

The main theme is Xander's struggles with his eyesight and reluctance to wear glasses, leading to him imagining things that aren't there. In this instance, he sees what he believes to be a salamander or cilantro, but it turns out to be a chameleon. He appears to enjoy it for a moment, but then it disappears and he's left wondering where it went.
