Product Details

Praise

“The 2016 Ambassador to Young People’s Science and Nature books is unquestionably the blobfish.” —Shelftalker

“The comical tone makes this particularly inviting, and DeGrand’s cartoonish illustrations only add to the fun. A playful introduction to the kookier corners of the animal kingdom.” —Booklist

“Readers will never look at pink the same way…. Keating maintains a casual tone while delivering intriguing details about each animal.” —Publishers Weekly

“Bratz, Monster High, and their ilk have recently demonstrated that how much attitude pink can pack, but Nature has been onto this fact for quite a while. Keating rattles off seventeen creatures from land, sea, and air whose coloration punches a hole in pink’s girly-girl image.” —The Bulletin

“Pink is for bubble gum and ballet slippers, sure, but it’s also for blobfish, pinktoe tarantulas, pygmy seahorses, Amazon river dolphins [etc.] . . . A map and glossary are the pink icing on the pink cake. It’s clearly time to rethink pink, people.” —Shelf Awareness
