The Pink Party

Written by Maryann Macdonald
Illustrated by Judy Stead

(Ages 4-7)

Rose and Valentina both love pink.

But whenever Rose gets something pink, Valentina gets something even pinker!

Rose secretly thinks Valentina is becoming a show-off, but she’s afraid to say so.

When Valentina gives the pinkest party ever, Rose just can’t keep quiet any longer. She says what she thinks, and both friends decide that not everything is perfect in pink.


“This sweet story delivers a moral about friendship in a pleasant package that is sure to appeal to petite lovers of all things pink.”

School Library Journal

“Hurt feelings can be hard. There’s a rapprochement that is just perfect at the end of this story, one that even adults might be able to learn from.”
