I Will Not Wear Pink

By Joyce Dunbar
Illustrated by Polly Dunbar

A rollicking, rumbustious story about being yourself.

"Nothing or no one will make me wear pink!" declares Plunkett the pig. But could there be one shade of pink that is perfect - for a boy or girl pig? And will Plunkett find true love, whatever his colour?

  • New picture book from a famous mother and daughter partnership, both top picture book creators.
  • Rumbustious, rollicking read-aloud rhyme reminiscent of Margaret Mahy that celebrates the freedom not to conform and to be yourself.
  • Exuberant, humorous artwork with endearing pig characters.
