Lynne Rickards was born in Canada and has lived in Scotland for twenty years. She is well known as a best-selling children's author and her other books include Clementine's Smile, Groovy Googles and Other Splendiferous Rhymes and I Do Not Eat the Colour Green.

Patrick the penguin awakens one morning to find he's inexplicably turned pink from head to foot. Boys can't be pink! he declares in all-capital letters. The doctor has no explanation (none is ever offered), but Patrick's dad points out that flamingos in Africa are pink and at least half are boys. Tired of being teased, Patrick swims to Africa and tries, unsuccessfully, to fit in with the friendly flamingos. Returning home, he is welcomed and respected for his adventure, and happily resigns himself to being forever pink: Being different wasn't so bad after all. Although Chamberlain's comical illustrations suit the exclamatory tone of the text, the book is loud and busy. Blurring a retro message about gender coding with a lesson about difference, the story fails to inspire sympathy for Patrick or offer solace to kids who might share Patrick's feelings. Design choices don't help; the erratic placement of text turns many pages into a jumble of words fighting for space with the images. Ages 4-8.

Oh, how we love this book in our house. We are members of the New England Aquarium in Boston, where the penguins take center stage, so a lot of kids in downtown Beantown are pretty into penguins. My daughter, 2 years 10 months, is one of them.

As you may also know, a LOT of toddlers are into pink. For girls, the pink gene seems to kick in as they get close to 3, and suddenly EVERYTHING is pink. A decent number of toddler boys are suddenly into pink as well, especially if they have sisters (older sisters they want to model, or baby sisters who are lavished with pink presents).

So, when my daughter begged daddy for a pink penguin at the aquarium, he had to get one for her-- but we knew nothing of this book.

A month or two later, my daughter was still firmly obsessed with her pink penguin when I logged onto Amazon looking for toddler girl books focused on pink things (her favorite) that were not also PRINCESS related (a common obsession I'm hoping to stave off to some degree). I happened upon this book, and I couldn't believe it. To say that my daughter loves reading about pink penguin Patrick and his adventures would be an understatement! We read it every night.

My one hesitation is that I wish the main character had been a girl-- female heroines are so hard to find and by the "pinkness" of the book, I do think this will be popular among girls. I guess part of Patrick's identity crisis is that he is a BOY and turns pink, but I think it could have been just as strong a story to have Patrick be Patricia and still have an identity crisis over being a pink penguin. I guess having Patrick as a boy makes the book equally interesting for boys--but there are soooo many little boy heroes, that it's not as important to me.

All in all, a great buy, a cute book, and perfect for PINK OBSESSED GIRLS if you're looking for princess alternatives.

My daughter LOVES penguins so we had to buy this, but its not our favorite.

The basic plot is that a boy penguin wakes up one day and finds he's pink. His friends make fun of him. So he runs away from home to join some flamingos, but realizes he doesn't fit in there either. So he goes home and gives a report at school talking about his trip (which apparently makes him the cool kid). Then everything is ok.

The basic message is that it is ok to be different. The story feels a little forced and could be more concise or maybe funnier (or both). The first time my husband and I read it to the kids we weren't impressed, but both kids seem to find it funny that the penguin is pink (they may be too young to really get the rest of the story).

this is an ok book if you're looking for something that talks about having it be ok to be different, but its not a great penguin book (the main character could easily be a duck or a chicken or a wombat instead). For penguin books, we like A Penguin Story a lot better.

This book has such a wonderful message in it about being yourself and remembering to accept others. We can get so caught up in physical differences and maybe to the point where we start seeing it as a negative thing which often can lead to bullying. I bought this book to use with the K-2 grades in our school. I also bought a pink penguin puppet on amazon to go along with the book. It has a simple message and I HIGHLY recommend the puppet.

Great book to teach kids that being different is okay and that just because someone is different is okay as well. the pink penguin goes great with this book when reading it.

Cute book with good message. Both my 2 and 6 yr old like it a lot. It's a little long for my 2 yr old to sit through the whole thing, but perfect length for my 6 yr old.
Tells a great story about a penguin who turns pink and his struggle with self acceptance. When he goes on a journey, he discovers that it is OK to be unique! He comes home & lives happily ever after as a pink penguin.
