A Bad Case of Stripes Literature Unit

By David Shannon

Rather than admit her love for lima beans, Camilla Cream pretends to hate them in order to fit in with her friends at school. However, this decision to hide her true self has an unexpected consequence in the form of rainbow-colored stripes all over her body! Her skin continues to change—from stars and stripes and purple polka dots to roots, feathers, and a tail—at the mere suggestion by anyone around her. Camilla is visited by an array of doctors, specialists, experts, therapists, and even a guru—none of which are able to cure her mysterious ailment. Finally, a little old lady bearing lima beans cures Camilla by helping her discover her real self. David Shannon’s over-the-top illustrations are striking, bold, and extremely detailed. They’re sure to catch the attention of the reader. Readers will sympathize with Camilla as her skin takes on more revolting characteristics causing her class to taunt her. Kids will surely be able to relate to Camilla’s common fear of not fitting in and the desperate measures she takes to avoid being herself. The book’s message is strong—it’s okay to be different and important to be yourself.
