Pink is for Blobfish: Discovering the World’s Perfectly Pink Animals
By: Jess Keating

Pink is for Blobfish: Discovering the World’s Perfectly Pink Animals is a strange and wonderful read. The main title, prominently displayed on the book cover, is somewhat misleading. The author Jess Keating not only examines the pink blobfish, but, as the much smaller subtitle indicates, pink animals throughout the world. The majority of creatures are very unusual which makes for a fun, fact-filled, captivating read. Highlights include a spider with poisonous pink hair and a pink starfish that expels its own stomach and wraps it around meals too big to swallow. The photos, especially the picture of the pink amazon dolphin, are beautiful. David DeGrand’s illustrations provide accessible and humorous representations of each animal’s unique qualities.
