A beautifully illustrated magical story a little girl and her relationship with her grandfather. The story is written in verse, very catchy and well written, making it more entertaining and enjoyable to read and share.  A wonderful story about family, growing up and I felt great for teaching about ageing and loss.

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion

Don’t Drink the Pink is a beautifully written and illustrated book about a young girl named Madeline and the wonderful relationship she has with her Grandfather Gilderberry. A magical man who each year for her birthday gives her a potion to drink, each potion a different color with a different magical outcome. Growing big, invisible, etc. 

The cute rhymes made the story very enjoyable. We got to see Madeleine grow. By the third birthday I was preparing myself for the ending of the story, tissues and a chuckle got me through it! 

A wonderful story to teach children about the magical relationships of family and how to deal with loss.
