Parents in Touch review I Will Not Wear Pink

July 15, 2016

"Plunkett has been invited to a party by Priscilla - but he must wear pink. Never, he says. Riotous rhyming text sees Plunkett in all sorts of pink... and finally he discovers that there is one shade of pink that is just perfect. Happily, Priscilla agrees with Plunkett and the two pigs fly happily away... all in pink! Just be yourself, and all will be perfect, is the theme of this entertaining story."

"Altogether a bravura performance by mother and daughter. One gets the impression that both Joyce and Polly Dunbar had an equally terrific time creating this gloriously dotty, thoroughly upbeat celebration of being yourself."

What reviewers said about Dark Sky Park

"If you are going to extreme places, like the very depths of the sea, say, and fancy doing extreme things, like lava boarding on a volcano, and you feel you need a poet as guide and companion, then the award-winning Philip Gross is the obvious choice."

Books for Keeps

"To say this book is extraordinary is no exaggeration. Crafted with consummate skill, every one of the poems is a gem." Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub

 

"… mesmerising anthology which had me wondering, learning, looking and so much more. Quite apart from being captivated by his poetic voice, I came away all the richer for what I learnt about worms, tardigrades, even ivy!" Alison Kelly, readingzone.com

"He imagines the lives of tardigrades, or contemplates the wonder of a dark sky park that bans artificial lights. In every creation there is awe for the history, continuity and wealth of life on our planet. I am overwhelmed by its substance and variety. Book wagon recommends this superb title highly.
