Princess Fluffy Plumpkin Eats Pink

by Chris Roy

Blackberry Book Tour

February 28 - March 03

Chapter book, 32 pages.

Princess Fluffy wasn't accepted as royalty. She didn't have colorful fur like her sisters. Even her own parents, the King and Queen, treated her like a common Plumpkin.

After many attempts to change the color of her fur, Princess Fluffy discovered that looking like a common Plumpkin had its advantages, and was able to do what her brother the Prince couldn't — save the royal family from winter doom.

The Kingdom named her a hero, but does that make her a real princess?

Brimming with motivation and uplifting moments, this story is great for kids that may be experiencing difficulties with obesity, body shaming, or racial issues — or simply enjoy fairytales and lots of pink!

"Fluffy and pink. No need to say more! This is a wonderful modern fairytale about belonging, acceptance and self-love. I can't cope with so much cuteness." – Carola Schmidt, bestselling children's author and science writer

My Review
Princess Fluffy Plumpkin Eats Pink is a cute children's book about a royal plumpkin who wants to be like the rest of her family. Princess Fluffy isn't colorful or skinny like her sisters. Her brother and her parents are also perfectly royal. But Princess Fluffy is just plain and common. So she decides to eat anything that's pink in the hopes of becoming just like the rest of her family. Soon, though, Princess Fluffy discovers that eating pink won't make her special. Being herself is what makes her special. 

This is a sweet story that has a good message. It teaches kids it's okay to be themselves, regardless of what they look like. It's who they are as a person that matters, not their weight, skin color, size, shape, etc. I feel like that's something every young readers needs to hear.

A delightful story with colorful illustrations and lots of heart.

4.5 stars!
