KIRKUS REVIEW

Camilla Camel the last in the caravan line made the most of her privacy to go off into a fancy sort of soft-shoe shuffle. It turned out to be a Spontaneous expression of pleasure at walking across the hot sands but an entrepreneur, Abul the Tricky tried to make her perform at the market place Camilla however, just went into a primadonnish huff until, the caravan came to pick her up for the return trip. The fancy-stepping adds some lift to an otherwise rather pedestrian story. The black and white line drawings convincingly represent the locale and dover the spectrum of camel expressions.
