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

By Jess Keating. Published in 2016 by Alfred A. Knopf

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

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.

    This book was really interesting and I learned a lot about pink animals. All though the blob fish sure is gross, it’s all slimy.
