Die Ostergeschichte einmal anders erzählt: Leben, Sterben und Auferstehung Jesu werden von einem Chamäleonvogel geschildert, in dessen Federkleid sich Gefühle wie Trauer und Freude farblich widerspiegeln. Während er von Jesus und dessen Liebe zu den Menschen erzählt, leuchtet er bunt. Dann wird er grau, schließlich schwarz und verschwindet fast ganz, als Jesus gefoltert und ans Kreuz geschlagen wird. Doch am Ende feiern die Menschen die Auferweckung Jesu - und die Federn des Chamäleonvogels strahlen so stark wie nie zuvor. Liebevoll, emotional und anschaulich dargestellt ermöglicht dieses Bilderbuch Kindern ab 4 Jahren ein echtes Mitfühlen und Verstehen des Ostergeschehens
