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."

A modern retelling of an evergreen folk-tale

 

One amazing day, Jack catches a Magic
 Fish… “If you free me,” says the fish,
“I’ll grant your dearest wish!”
Jack and his wife Liz can’t believe their
luck when the Magic Fish gives them a
pretty little cottage, but soon they are
asking for more… and more – even a
palace. And they forget to say thank you!
Now the sea rages and the Magic Fish is
angry! Find out what happens next, in
this spellbinding tale about the dangers
of being too greedy!
