Pinky's favorite color is pink. He has a pink bike, and he loooves his stuffed animals. His best friend, Rex, is a girl who loves dinosaurs. This particular book has them squabbling over a pink dinosaur souvenir at a museum. Not technically picture books, the Pinky and Rex tales are somewhere between challenging easy readers and very basic chapter books. Pinky's affinity for pink and stuffed animals are presented simply, just as an obsession with baseball would be. "Pinky and Rex and the Bully," a later book in the series, addresses what it's like to be bullied for liking things not popularly considered cool for your gender nicely. Pinky *really* gets bullied in that book, called a "girl" and a "sissy" and told he "might turn into a girl." Everyone around him, bully excepted, is supportive and assures him it's okay to be who he is. Will work just fine as a read-aloud to the 5-yr-old crowd. These are by the same "James Howe" who writes the Bunnicula books. He's pure awesome.
