Text and Images from princess Lemon & Her Yellow Shoes
Kate had lots and lots of shoes. She had pink slip-on shoes, brown floaters, purple boots, black school shoes, white
sports shoes, red party shoes and silver ballet shoes.
She also had another pair of shoes. But, she did not like to talk about them. She did not want any one to see them. She hid them at the far back corner of her shoe rack.
Aunt Tina had given Kate a pair of yellow, open toed, strappy sandals for Diwali. Kate was very angry when she
saw them. She wanted Mama to throw them away.
Mama was surprised. “I thought you love shoes. In fact, you have been demanding exactly these kind of sandals for the last year. You said, that the red party shoes are not sandals and you wanted party sandals. Well these are gorgeous party sandals. So what’s the problem?”
Kate told mama why she did not like the sandals.

Images and Text from Scared Out Of Her Wits
Shiv was intrigued. Why was his best friend, the typically level headed Kaira, draped over the lip of a dumpster, with
her bum sticking out in to the air? Had she taken leave of her senses? He had to find out.
The stench was unbearable. Shiv supposed, that Mona had used the society dumpster to dispose off the half boiled egg her mother had given her for breakfast, again.
Holding his nose with one hand, Shiv gently tapped Kaira on her calf with the other. Shiv had hoped to draw Kaira’s
attention, but he hadn’t expected her to jump, scream, and then fall on him. He managed to crawl out from under her, only to see that she looked completely deranged.
Her hair was a stinky, tangled mess with a banana peel hanging out of a half done plait. There was black goo on her nose. But none of this was as frightening as the look in her eyes.

Yes, I as well had the experiment for hating a few colors because they remind me of disgusting stuff such as brown for poo, green for boogers eww. But I had to deal with it because in the other-side brown is for chocolate and green is for my green flowers my favorite book. I would give it 5-stars.
Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts.
