Inclusion, self-esteem, and the value of true friendship are celebrated in the charismatic art of Lucile Danis Drouot and blithe text of award-winning author Andrée Poulin

Filippo can’t help that he’s pink. He’s a flamingo, after all. But Zac the zebra and Poncho the panda aren’t having it. They only want to play with fellow black-and-white animals. Filippo is sure he’ll never be content without Zac and Poncho’s friendship. But what would the world be without pink? There would be no roses, no sunsets, no strawberry ice cream. With a little love and encouragement along the way, Filippo sets out to find the value of pink—and of himself.

With Tickled Pink, award-winning author Andrée Poulin delivers a fun, heartwarming tale about finding the confidence to be yourself. Illustrator Lucile Danis Drouot highlights Filippo as the only spot of colour in a black and white world, gradually making the journey more vibrant as the little flamingo’s confidence—and the reader’s—begins to soar.
