Gr. 2^-4. When a bully calls him a sissy because he likes pink and plays with girls, Pinky has second thoughts about who he is and how he fits in. Mrs. Morgan, a neighbour who takes a friendly interest in the boy, listens as he struggles to find the answers, but she warns that if he changes to suit other people, he may give up too much of himself. In discussing bullies and insecurity, Howe takes on two conflicts familiar to children and handles them with a sure touch. The resolution may come a little too quickly, but Pinky's pain seems real. Melissa Sweet's ink-and-watercolour illustrations appear throughout the seven short chapters, giving the book a most appealing look. This raises issues significant to grade-school children, making it a good book for discussion at home or in the classroom. The last title in the popular series is Pinky and Rex and the Double-Dad Weekend (1995). Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
