Welcome to Chameleon Canopy...

Meet Kiki Chameleon...

Kiki lives with dozens of her friends in the high branches of Chameleon Canopy.  

Kiki has the same ability as all chameleons because she can change her colours. However, she uses this skill to let her imagination run free!

She uses her creativity in such exciting ways to help the other creatures on Cape Ability!

Why is Creativity Important?

Growth Vs Fixed Mindset

Does your child feel confident to express their creative ideas? Do they prefer to copy others?

Every human being has the ability to be creative. However, children can lack belief in their own originality and seek to follow rather than enjoy using their own ideas. Kiki Chameleon shows them how to break free and unleash their own creativity for the sheer joy of it!

Creativity is such a gift and it allows us all to be different. We only have to look around us to see the efforts of human creativity – from technology, fashion, stories, cures for diseases – it makes our world rich and inspiring.

Change Their Inner Voice Through Storytelling

Every child has a creative spirit, but some are a little hesitant to express it and instead prefer to copy or rely on others’ ideas. This reluctance may link to their self-belief or their resilience to overcome a challenge.

Enter Kiki Chameleon – the animal who allows her imagination to run free!

This inspiring tale models how to believe in your own creativity it is what makes you – you!

Creative thinking also helps a child to problem-solve a situation and gives them confidence to try more than one of their ideas.

How Does Kiki Teach Creativity?


“Be Creative, Kiki Chameleon’ helps your child to develop a belief in their own imagination and confidence to try out their ideas

They will internalise Kiki’s message and whisper to themselves, “How can I be creative in this situation?” Kiki loves to use her creativity to help others – how will your child use theirs?

What Our Users Say…

Orla was so excited when she received her new book bundle! The books were so bold and vibrant; she couldn't wait to see the pictures inside. We read, 'Don't give up, Sadie Spider' first. The story was engaging and carried a clear simple message of not giving up. It is clever how each book involved characters from other books in Cape Ability. I definitely recommend these books to read with your child.

We already have Bobby bee, Tommy turtle and Cooper crab, my 5 year old absolutely adores these books. We like them so much we’ve ordered 4 more. The quality of the books is amazing, easy to hold for both adults and children. The details in the pictures is so good, you can tell time and effort has gone into each one. We can't wait for the next in the series to come out!

Selina - Parent to two lovely girls

Our 4 year old has absolutely loved reading about the journeys of Cooper, Sadie & Bobby. He has 2 books at bedtime and he always chooses to have the Cape Ability book twice! We are very excited to meet the rest of the Cape Ability gang! 🕷🐝 🦀

Support Your Child's Mental Health with Cape Ability

Cape Ability was created by a Primary School Teacher with over 20 years experience.  Our stories really speak to little minds, with each motivational character teaching children to develop a healthy inner voice. Each beautifully illustrated book has a guiding principle which is demonstrated by a key character throughout the story. 

The books help develop a shared language between parent and child, allowing you to help them through life’s little challenges.

We live in an uncertain and changing world.  At Cape Ability, we believe every child should be equipped with an inner voice that helps them to stay happy and healthy.
