Zinnia is the only pink person in a very gold world. After being told that pink stinks by a golden bully, she goes on a quest to get rid of her pink for good. Along the way, Zinnia learns a valuable lesson. Will she embrace her unique pink, or will she change to be just like everyone else?


MY REVIEW
Anything But Pink is an adorable children's book about the only pink person in a world of gold. Zinnia feels like an outcast. Everyone in her world is gold, but she happens to be pink. And because of this, she gets bullied, being told that pink stinks. So she goes on a journey to try and become gold, just like everyone else. But along the way, she meets some interesting characters who help her to see that being different is much better than being just like everyone else.
I really enjoyed this story. It's a great book for younger readers, and it has a wonderful message that it's okay to be different. Don't try to conform and put yourself in a "just like everyone else" box. Be who you were meant to be, regardless of what others might say. 
The illustrations were lovely, and young readers will enjoy how colorful and unique this story is.
Highly recommend to all parents of young readers.
5 stars!
