Keating, Jess Pink is for Blobfish (The World of Weird Animals) 25 pgs Alfred Knopf, 2016. $16.99 NON-FICTION/PICTURE BOOK
Ever wanted to know about animals that are pink? This book has
answers for you. Double page spreads feature a wide variety of creatures from
the Blobfish gracing the cover, to armadillos, birds, and the ever popular
naked mole rat. It’s a fairly simple read and provides information like diets,
size, predators, threats, and fun facts.
This book has a TON of cover appeal and would be a big draw for
readers. Students would learn quite a bit of random fun facts and discover
animals from all over the world. It doesn’t have any real curriculum connection
because its so oddly specific. Looks like its going to be series, curious for
