What to expect: Pink, Fathers and daughters

It’s the day of the Pink Girls Pink-nic and Mama has come down with the chickenpox (or something of the likes). Daddy steps in to save the day, but how can a dad go to a “Pink-nic?” Boys do not wear pink—right? In our, thankfully, modern world, where men are no longer afraid to have a strong aesthetic sense, they do wear pink. And, like so many parents have done before, this particular daddy will go to great lengths to keep his daughter happy; he embraces his inner metro-sexual self by dressing in pink and taking his daughter to the Pink Girls Pink-nic. The story is playful and the text has been carefully designed to catch the eye and emphasize the mood in all of the rights places. From the cheerful font to the painted illustrations, this delightfully, entertaining story of daddy-saves-the-day will have you charmed … and the ending will leave you tickled pink!
