Amelia's class is learning Italian and very soon her school is having their first ever Gelato Day! But not everyone is excited. The new boy, Harry Truffle, won't smile and there's a graffiti bandit on the loose.

One more piece of graffiti and the principal has threatened to cancel the event. Amelia is angry, and becomes determined to catch the culprit. But will she be able to keep her cool, or will her chameleon powers take over and reveal her secret?


The second title in this wonderful new series is sure to be welcomed by junior girls!

Amelia is so excited that the new school year is starting. She loves school and has missed her friends over the summer holidays, and now that she is starting Year 3, she feels so grown up.

A new boy, Harry, is also starting in their class this year from England. Amelia can’t quite put her finger on it, but there is something unusual about him that makes her think she needs to keep an eye on him!

Year 3 also brings with it language classes. Amelia is so excited to be learning Italian, and with the added excitement of a Gelato Day at school, she is extremely excited. But when graffiti starts appearing at school and the Gelato Day is under threat, Amelia sets out to try and find the culprit. Could it be the new boy Harry?

Even though her ‘chameleon’ power that emerged at her birthday hasn't re-appeared yet, with a little help from her dog Percy, she might just have figured out how it works and how she can put it to good use!

This really is a great new series, and Amelia is such a loveable character that we are sure it will be a huge hit.
