Review of “A Bad Case of Stripes” by David Shannon

A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of my favorite kid’s books. It combines a cool message about health and individuality with a creative story, beautiful illustrations, and humor. I found this book at a school book fair years ago, and now I can read it to my kids who can’t look away. Camilla Cream is the lead character, and she has developed a case of stripes out of nowhere. Everyone seems to have an answer ready about how she can get rid of them, but who really knows the underlying root of her strange ailment? What ultimately helps her feel better? This book will entertain kids and parents, and it reminds us that real medicine is often hidden in plain sight and something that we are innately connected to.
