It’s not easy to be different especially for small people and often the feelings of exclusion are very overwhelming. This gorgeous picture book illustrates perfectly that being different is OK and will empower young readers to not only accept but embrace their differences.

For little Pink being a different colour to all the other dinosaurs seems an almost insurmountable problem and one which makes her despair. It’s certainly no fun when you try to play hide-and-seek with your brown, green or grey peers and you stand out like a beacon. She certainly doesn’t feel brave and strong as her mother encourages her to be.

But when Pink tags after all the other juvenile dinosaurs and they become lost, the little dinosaur finds that not only can she be brave but her very difference can be a salvation.

This is a truly delightful book – as one would expect from two such talented creators- and both text and vibrant illustrations will not only fully engage little readers but enable them to their own self-acceptance.

Highly recommended for small peeps from around 3 years upwards.
