Pink! by Lynne Rickards - ADVISABLE

Pink! by Lynne Rickins, illustrated by Margaret Chamberlain. Chicken House (Scholastic), January 2009.


Patrick Penguin has woken up PINK! His mom takes him to the doctor and they decide that Patrick may feel best living with a flock of penguins. Patrick makes his solo trip to Africa and tries his best, but decides that even pink, he still is a penguin.

Okay, so I adore penguins! But Patrick's plight is compelling (how can a boy be Pink!), the line drawings are adorable, and how can anyone resist a penguin.
