The Lovereading4Kids comment

Meet Pinkie, a fabulously feisty modern tomboy heroine who is mad about pink. Kids who are just starting to enjoy the experience of reading from 4 upwards will relish these terrific stories. Each one is packaged with a glittery cover and there is a pull-out poster in every one too.
There are four launch titles: Midnight Feast, Fancy Dress, A Nickname and Dance Fever.


Adventures Of Pinkie: What's in a Nickname by Maddy Rose

A fabulously feisty pink-mad tomboy, Pinkie lives with her mum and dad in a stripey lighthouse by the sea, has lots of friends and loves to visit the Grampies down the hill. She loves to re-use things (especially Pink things) and create her own fun and adventures. In this adventure, find out how Pinkie gets her nickname.


Now this is a rather cool young lady who has a whole series of adventures for girls to enjoy -- Sarah Hardy Eastern Daily Press
