Calamity, a camel...trades in her heavy packs for a colder climate and skis and soon yearns for her former life....It's a particularly easy lesson, learned without fuss or tension, depicted in Busby's cartoonish illustrations."--Kirkus Reviews. "A camel who complains constantly about her personal comfort provides an opportunity for comic moralizing in this quirky tale....Busby's relaxed, insouciant drawings are bright and cheery, and she has a witty sense of composition."--Publishers Weekly. "...illustrated with light-hearted pen-and-ink and watercolor artwork, with animals trudging, mugging, and cavorting...Throughout, the facial expressions on Calamity and her friends manage to be both very camel-like and very funny."--School Library Journal.
