Name of Book: A Bad Case of Strips
Written by: David Shannon
This book is about a girl called Camilla who has a problem. Her problem is that her skin turns all different colours and goes stripy.
The problem first appears on the first day of school and she has to stay at home. The next she goes to school and all the children laugh at her and they called her names.
Her parents called Dr.Bumble and when he came to look at her decided that she should go back to school the next day. He gave her some ointment to cure her spots.
At school the next day she was teased and when she got home the principal called her mother and asked her to keep Camilla at home. Her father called the doctor he said that they needed to get the specialists to have a look at Camilla.
When the specialists arrived they examined Camilla and they gave her pills to take. She had to take one of each pill before bedtime.
Unfortunately the pills did not work. They made her worse. She turned into a giant pill ! Dr.Bumble rushed over and this time he brought the Experts ! However they really didn't know what was wrong and they could not help Camilla.
The TV and radio stations all found out about Camilla's problem. Lots of people tried to help but nothing cured her strips. One day a nice old lady (who was as plump and sweet as a strawberry) came to help. She offered Camilla lima beans. At first Camilla was afraid to eat the beans but when she did she began to improve. Soon she was back to normal. She was cured !
