What's a Penguin to Think When He Wakes Up Pink!
by Lynne Rickards and Margaret Chamberlain - Find out more about the author

What’s a penguin to think when he wakes up pink?! Patrick wakes up one day to find out he’s turned pink overnight! What will his friends think? Believing none of them will want to play with him anymore, Patrick runs away in search of pink playmates. He crosses the ocean where he finds some flamingos – but will they want to play with him? Patrick soon learns that friendship is never black and white, but that real friends will accept you whatever. Lynne Rickards’ book is a heart-warming story of learning to be a different, for children aged between four and six.

This edition is published to coincide with Pink! The musical (Hopscotch Theatre Company), on tour to nursery and primary schools throughout Scotland from March 2013.
