5.0 out of 5 stars You can't be all things to all men! 31 Mar 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is a wonderfully illustrated book of a little girl that is so concerned with everyone's opinion of her that she stops being herself.In the very beginning she goes through outfit after outfit to wear before her first day of school, stops eating her favorite food-lima beans because the kids tease her.Her adventure begins when she wakes up with colored stripes the next day and has to go to school like that! Better to have eaten the limas! When the kids in class discover that she turns red, white & blue during the Pledge of Allegiance they go nuts calling out shapes, sizes, colors that she automatically turns as they yell suggestions! It's an interesting study on human nature. It shows that you should always be yourself and not worry what ANYONE thinks of you whether you eat limas or dress in red polka dots! You can't be all things to everyone and if you try, you will be taken advantage of, as those kids did in class. They had no mercy on her condition.
Camilla found out that she can be herself whether the kids liked it or not!
HERE'S TO LIMA BEANS!

4.0 out of 5 stars Follow your heart. 16 Oct 2011
By Stewart M TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is a delightfully illustrated story about the perils of not following your own heart. Mixed into the story are some themes of peer pressure and conformity.

This makes it all seem rather serious - and while there is not really much subtly in the way the messages are delivered, the book itself is wonderfully silly. Key to this are the illustrations, where the books central character changes colour, shape and texture at the whim of her classmates. These really are the best bit of the book.

Eventually the heroine of the story follows her own heart and all is well. I'm not sure how familiar the cure will be to many people outside the USA - but that claim could be made about many foods.

I think this would be a worthy addition to any kid's bookshelf, but something tells me it may be more popular with adults then the kids.

I would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic illustrations -- NOT TO BE MISSED 1 April 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Just want to mention that the illustrations in this picture book are positively AWESOME. While that word is often overused today, it is aptly applied to this book. It's not to be missed by anyone who appreciates a spectacular picture book! My now 8 and 10 year old have not stopped looking at it. Of course we believe one is never too old for a great picture book.
