Pink! by Lynne Rickards - ADVISABLE


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


PreK, EL (K-3) - ADVISABLE


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.
