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 .
