What this book is about:

When I think of the color pink, I usually conjure up images of unicorns, fluffy pillows and little girls. After reading this book, I will never see pink the same way again. Jess Keating introduces the reader to the pink Blobfish, an animal made of gelatinous goo. There is a pink dragon millipede that secretes a toxic chemical at predators and of course we can’t forget the pink naked mole rat which looks anything but cute and fuzzy! The unusual creatures just keep coming in this book and kids will not be able to look away.

Why I love it:

  • The layout of this book is wonderful. Amazing photos of the animals draw the reader in while fun tidbits and facts are easily displayed next to the images.
  • I was pleasantly surprised that seventeen animals are represented. This book has a lot of substance and plenty to keep readers entertained and informed.

Who this book is for:

Great for kids who love unusual animals and fun facts.
