Puzzled by Pink by Sarah Frances Hardy

Not every girl loves pink

Izzie hates pink as much as her sister, Rose, loves it. So when Rose plans an all-pink birthday party with the guests dressed in fairy costumes, Izzie decides to give her own alternative party in the attic, where the guests will be monsters, spiders, ghosts, and the pet cat. But some powerful magic triggers the appearance of yet another guest - an unexpected one. This will be a party nobody forgets!

My Thoughts:

I loved Puzzled by Pink. It reminded me of a children’s version of Emily the Strange. I can identify with Izzie, the main character. As a child, black was my favorite color, and all the girls in school thought I was weird because of it. The book teaches children a lesson. No matter how different someone may seem, get to know them before you judge them. It’s what is on the inside that counts, not the clothes that they wear. Puzzled by Pink also teaches that everyone, no matter how different they may be have something in common with another person. The illustrations in the book are all wonderfully drawn. I loved the ones with the black cat because they remind me of my cat, Sir Pig. My favorite drawing is the one of Izzie going up the stairs and Jinx following her. It’s adorable that they both have the same facial expression and walk the same way. This is a great children’s book. I recommend it for girls four and older. 

I give Puzzled by Pink: 5/5.
