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.

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.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2–The humorous and slightly bizarre McNilly family jumps right off the pages in this delightful romp. During her pregnancy, Milly eats Cream of Chameleon soup for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. When baby Camilla arrives, she has the characteristics of a chameleon–obvious to readers but not to her parents or teacher. She camouflages herself whenever she wants to avoid things, like liver and onions or assignments at school. The plot gets even wackier when Milly starts eating Cream of Pterodactyl soup, and soon Camilla has a brother. Terry looks just like a pterodactyl, but his parents think he is perfect, just like Camilla. The art is vibrant and original, showing Camilla morphing into other colors. A fresh story about an unusual child who gets into some bizarre situations.–JoAnn Jonas, Chula Vista Public Library, San Diego, CA
