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."

My Friends

Max Low

"I've made some friends. Would you like to meet them?"

 

Mossy is a quiet friend, Archibald is a lion friend, Ezza watches clouds, Pepper cooks yummy food, Olga listens to music, Herman knits and Lina invents things, while Bert looks after worms and snails. And Klaus is an imaginary friend! They are all good friends but sometimes it's also nice to just be on your own.

 

Written in the first person, this is a playful and thoughtful exploration of friendship, with stunning collage illustrations, for younger children.

 

From Reviews of 'My Friends'...

"This quirky, playful look at friendship offers a great starting point for exploring the topic with young listeners who will readily relate to rising star, Max Low's bold bright images."  -Red Reading Hub

 

"Simply written, colourful and engaging. A lovely book to share at home and in a learning setting that could promote chats around positive friendships and emotions." -Mamafilz

 

"A thoughtful exploration of friendship and what it means and it's a great conversation starter. The stunning collage illustrations give even more impact to this sensitive book." -Parents in Touch
