A Bad Case of Stripes

This is a book about a girl that loves lima beans. She doesn't want her friends to know that she loves lima beans because they hate lima beans. She thinks that her friends will laugh at her. She wakes up one day and she is covered with stripes. When someone says a color she turns to that color.

I liked this story because it tells that you need to be the person you are. I liked how all the illustrations were very colorful. My favorite part of the book was when the girl kept changing how she looked.

I recommend this book to children that like to read about a problem that gets solved. Read this story to find out how the girl's problem is solved.
