Book Review with Sara of A bad case of stripes by kids for kids Bookosmiakids


Title- A Bad Case Of Stripes

Author- David Shannon

Publisher- Scholastic

This is a fantasy story. It has a lot of funny and interesting moments in it and it also  teaches us a very important lesson.


The story is about a girl named Camilla Cream who is afraid of liking things that her friends don’t like. So, she learns a lesson when she gets a pattern- changing skin. When she goes to school after figuring out she is not physically
ill, she finds that everyone laughs at her. Her skin patterns end up dramatizing  itself according to what everyone says around her.


One part that I really found interesting is when Camilla kept changing her appearance. It is truly unbelievable and I found it quite inspiring and  interesting.


My favourite character in this  story was the Old Woman who made Camilla realize that it is important to love your own self and be what you really are.


I think this is a wonderful story and it gives us a message that it is very  important to love yourself and do whatever makes you happy. Sometimes people might say things to you but you need to be yourself and enjoy what you  like to do. I think it’s a very good story and everyone should read it.

On a scale of 5, I will give ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 star rating for this book.*

The book is recommended for ages 5-9.

*On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest
