I tried to read this book with my daughter and didn't get a positive reaction. She is 6 and when we go to the bookstore she will cover this book with other books because she is afraid of it. To make matters worst now is in her class and she is very afraid of it that doesn't even want to go her class. I respect that might be a good story for some but others the illustrations are scary for some.

A really fun book about peer pressure and simple remedies for most problems....my grandkids simply adore this book! My (now 20yrs old) oldest granddaughter even dressed up as Camilla one Halloween when she was about 8yrs old. It's fun to read and use all kinds of voices! Highly reccomend this book!

I bought this book at a school book fair when I was 9 years old and I absolutely loved it. I read it several times and took it with me everywhere. It made me laugh and was definitely the most creative book I have ever read. The illustrations were beautiful and I'd stare at them for a long time before turning to the next page. I borrowed it from the library recently and still enjoy it as a 20 year old. I do know a girl who was terrified of the book though so I would be careful. But the other kids had no problem with it.

I read this book to my 2nd grade class at the very beginning of the school year. They thought it was hilarious! We talked about how we are all different and we don't need to worry what those around us think. The kids also made their own stories about their bad case of the ______ and those were just as funny as the book!

This book is a big hit with primary-aged children. They love the illustrations and the storyline has a good message, too!

David Shannon never disappoints! My kids love this book! Everytime it's selected for reading I have to read it twice. Wonderful, creative book!

My Granddaughter has been read David Shannon’s books since she was 2-1/2 years old. We came across this one when she was just 4 and soon to begin Pre-K. It couldn’t have come at a better time. Not only is the story fantastic but it became the primary tool to explain what peer pressure can do to you; so you must never let anyone dictate your action. It was an easy reference whenever she seem to doubt herself. She is now 7-1/2 years old and the first book she grabbed for her daily reading time was A Bad Case of Stripes. Once Great Always Great.

When i was in daycare, the kids LOVED this story. They asked me to read it everyday, and I so realize why. The pictures in this book are amazing, whoever drew these definitely needs a kudos. Any kid would fall into this story easy, just with the pictures alone. I love the story line behind it, on how people would 'judge' her and what happens. It's a great way to show kids on what can happen when you judge others and how to be yourself. I think every library, school and day care needs to have this book in their possession. I plan on even purchasing it for my own future kids.

My kids like this and it has a good story behind it. Helps to teach that you should not try to pretend like you are someone else, do not fall into peer pressure and just be yourself. Good for building confidence and VERY cute illustrations. Alice the Fairy is the BEST though!! So funny and it's my kids' favorite book (even my 3 year old boy!!)...he also likes the No David books by David Shannon too. :)

My three year old loves this book. Although it was a little long for her, she sat through it. We had a lot of fun reading this book. It is especially good to read before school starts.

My family always enjoys reading this book together at bedtime (or any time). The characters are funny and the pictures are amazing. There is so much to look at and every time we read the story we see something else we hadn't seen the last time. The story has a great message as well. Don't be afraid to just be yourself. I am a preschool teacher and this book is also one of the class favorites. We read this over and over and over again. It never gets old.

I remember buying this book at a book fair in my school. As soon as I started reading it I was hooked. It was one of my favorite books. I lost the book sadly, but still I remember the story. It is a wonderful book.

My students in 6th grade had a good time using this book in their reading response groups. I like it when you are just getting started working with groups. Very easy and simple.
