Praise for Tickled Pink: How Friendship Washes the World with Color

"Poulin offers readers a nice opportunity to reflect on identity and difference while exploring other sentiments, such as jealousy, rejection, sadness, empathy, and building confidence. The jungle settings are gracefully depicted in Drouot's jaunty, cartoonish figures and a grayscale palette that enables pink to stand out strikingly."--Booklist

"In this heartwarming story, award-winning author Andrée Poulin uses Ludo's incredible tenderness to remind young readers how important it is to be kind, while also showing how tumultuous a child's journey to self-confidence can be - especially when their peers see only flaws....illustrator Lucile Danis Drouot masterfully sets the tone for the flamingo's loneliness."--Quill & Quire

"[W]ith the friendship of a fun-loving lemur, [Fillipo the flamingo] learns that the world is a much better place because of its beautiful variety of colorations, but especially pink."--Foreword Reviews

"Filippo is the only spot of color in a black and white world and as his confidence starts to grow so does the vibrant color in the book. This book about acceptance, feelings, and friendship is a wonderful addition to any childrens' library."--San Francisco Book Review

"Anyone who has the feeling of 'not fitting in', whether constantly or occasionally, will see themselves in Filippo....[A] heartwarming and delightful read on a serious topic, is beautifully illustrated and well-written in delivering a positive message to young children. It would make an excellent addition to libraries, schools and family collections. Highly Recommended."--CM Magazine

"A delightfully crafted picture book for children ages 4-7 and will prove to be an enduringly popular addition to family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library picture book collections for young readers."--Midwest Book Review

"Lively and colorful...an amusing and thoughtful picture book."--Winnipeg Free Press

"I'm tickled pink by any book that supports diversity and acceptance of differences as the norm so I'm especially thrilled about a picture book that supports this message in as subtle and eloquent a way, as well as playful, as Tickled Pink: How Friendship Washes the World with Color."--CanLit for LittleCanadians

"A sweet French import about being one's self and making friends."--Youth Services Book Review
