Pink Is for Blobfish: Discovering the World’s Perfectly Pink Animals

Jess Keating, illus. by David DeGrand. Knopf, $16.99 (48p) ISBN 978-0-553-51227-4
Pink is so much more than cupcakes and princesses—some of the most unusual animals on the planet boast rosy hues. Using a playful “pink is for” refrain, Keating (the My Life Is a Zoo series) opens her World of Weird Animals series by familiarizing readers with such creatures as the pink fairy armadillo, pygmy seahorse, Amazon river dolphin, and naked mole rat. Crisp photography combines with DeGrand’s goofy cartoon interpretations of each animal. Keating maintains a casual tone while delivering intriguing details about each animal; sidebars chart key statistics, including size, predators, and diet. Readers will never look at pink the same way. Ages 5–8. Author’s agent: Kathleen Rushall, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. (Feb.)
