Synopsis

I Will Not Wear Pink by Joyce Dunbar

Dear Plunkett Please come to my party Theme: Pink Yours oinky, Priscilla Nothing or no one will make me wear pink! declares Plunkett the pig. But could there be one shade of pink that is perfect - for a boy or girl pig? And will Plunkett find true love, whatever his color?

Reviews

An extravaganza of thoughts about the colour pink, but given that the main characters are pigs it is also about being happy with the skin you are in. The language and illustrations are exuberant and full of rhyme. This is one of the first titles from the new Otter-Barry imprint and with Janetta Otter-Barry in the driving seat we are in for some wonderful titles. Really great for story times I am sure. -- Margaret Pemberton What a coup for this newly established publishing house - a new book from this winning and vastly experienced mother/daughter team. It bears all their halmarks; exuberant, playful language, humour, endearing illustrations and it is a joy to read aloud. English 4 - 11 Whether you are five or fifty you are sure to enjoy reading this exhilarating and amusing story together. Armadillo A great fun read by the duo Dunbars, wonderful, uplifting and meaningful. DolphinBooks - the blog 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.
