I Will Not Wear Pink
Publisher: Otter-Barry Books
When Priscilla the pig invites her friend Plunkett to a pink-themed party, she asks him to wear a flamboyant costume in various hues of her favourite colour. However, Plunkett is unimpressed by the rosy top hat and tails.
On his way to the party, Plunkett discards each item of his attire with a flourish. There is only one shade of pink that he is willing to be seen in - and that is the pink of his skin.
The ultimate message of this pacey, uplifting tale is to always be yourself and rejoice in your individuality. Created by a talented mother and daughter team, the exuberant full-page illustrations are a perfect accompaniment to the jolly rhythmic text, which bounds along and is great fun to read aloud.
