As the days go on, the stripes get worse and worse and change to represent anything imaginable including a checkerboard and clouds. She even grows a tail at one point! After a very embarrassing interaction with news crews, Camilla meets an old lady.
The old lady gives her lima beans and she magically turns back into herself. The illustrations in this book are amazing. My personal favorite is when Camilla becomes one with her room! May 25, Carole P. Roman rated it it was amazing. David Shannon writes the best books. His characters feel real, they are not cookie cutter. Camilla has trouble making up her mind. She worries what other people will think of her, even when choosing a dress.
She won't reveal that she likes lima beans, so she hides her real self. She begins to change, become distorted, and soon nobody recognizes her until an older woman tells her she knows the real person is in there somewhere. The moral is no matter w David Shannon writes the best books. The moral is no matter what others are telling you, you have to be true to yourself.
Don't be afraid to say what you like and if people don't like you for it- well, then it's their loss. A wonderful book, however, I think the age group should be older. Younger kids may be alarmed when Camilla changes too much.
Good book for discussion on peer pressure and acceptance. Feb 08, Harriet rated it did not like it. My daughter was read this book in the first week of kindergarten and is totally and utterly terrified by the images and the content. The greater themes of nonconformity may be easily accessible to adults however they appear to wash straight over a lot of young children and hit them straight in the terror centre as several of the children in her class were equally scared.
My daughter now cannot sleep alone and is absolutely petrified! In her whole life I have never seen her so poisonously affecte My daughter was read this book in the first week of kindergarten and is totally and utterly terrified by the images and the content.
In her whole life I have never seen her so poisonously affected by something. I urge you not to read this book to your young children it does far more damage than good. Breaking my strict rule about avoiding David Shannon books, I checked this one out after I noticed that almost every goodreads friend I have is reading it or wants to read it. Skip to main content.
