Camilla Cream loves lima beans, but she doesn’t want anyone to know that. She pretends to hate them like all the other kids do, but eventually, hiding her real feelings backfires. Camilla begins to change into every color or pattern that’s mentioned near her, from the stars and stripes of the American flag to the walls of her room. To become herself again, she’ll have to be true to herself —even her love of lima beans.
To buy: A Bad Case of Stripes, $4
