Hello book lovers, your friend Sara here! I love how you are all pouring in your write ups on your favourite books.
After all, if a story is written for young readers, shouldn’t they get to share their review of it?
Today’s review by 8 year old Aisha Mehta from Gurgaon, is of a book that is relevant for its context of peer pressure and identity and has been reviewed positively by another young reader before.
Aisha Mehta has an inquisitive mind and is often able to find answers to many of questions by her own observations. She is more independent than one would ordinarily expect children her age. She loves art and craft.
Aisha is a student of Shri Ram School Aravali, Gurgaon.
Title- A Bad Case Of Stripes
Author- David Shannon
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
