Camilla is a little strange-looking. But she's one talented girl. She can pick up a hopscotch rock without even bending over. She can look at her teacher with one eye and read a comic book with the other. And, best of all, she can blend in perfectly with her surroundings - so that no one, not even her parents, can tell she's there. Camouflaging sure comes in handy when it's time for her to go to the doctor or clean out the class hamster cage for her teacher. But one day Camilla blows her cover and finds herself in the spotlight. Colleen Sydor's spirited story and Pascale Constantin's brilliantly quirky illustrations bring to life a wonderfully weird girl who discovers that standing out isn't so bad after all. Ages 4-8 AUTHOR: Colleen Sydor lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with her family. She is the author of Camilla Chameleon and Raising a Little Stink. My Mother is a French Fry is her first novel for young adults. Born and raised in Montreal, Pascale studied Fine Arts and began her career as a sculptor for movie and TV productions. She had a great time creating unusual props that were often quite fantastical (like a bust of Beethoven as a terrier and a giant waterslide in the shape of a frog). So it's no surprise that when she eventually decided to become an illustrator she chose to focus on children's books. Because everyone knows that children's books have the most wondrous illustrations in the world. Colour illustrations

The exaggerated, quirky artwork s the real star here in scene after scene, where bug-eyed, blonde pony-tailed Camilla is cleverly camouflaged in the various backgrounds."
