Pinkalicious meets National Geographic in this nonfiction picture book introducing the weirdest, wildest, pinkest critters in the animal kingdom!

Some people think pink is a pretty color. A fluffy, sparkly, princess-y color. But it's so much more.
Sure, pink is the color of princesses and bubblegum, but it's also the color of monster slugs and poisonous insects. Not to mention ultra-intelligent dolphins, naked mole rats and bizarre, bloated blobfish.

Isn't it about time to rethink pink?

Slip on your rose-colored glasses and take a walk on the wild side with zoologist Jess Keating, author of How to Outrun a Crocodile When Your Shoes Are Untied, and cartoonist David DeGrand.

A New York Public Library Best Book for Kids, 2016

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

"Readers will never look at pink the same way."

Editorial Reviews

"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
