Jess Keating ð 6 DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD Pink Is for Blobfish í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Pinkalicious meets National Geographic in this nonfiction picture book introducing the weirdest wildest pinkest critters in the animal kingdom Some people think pink is a pretty color A fluffy sparkly princess y color But it's so much Sure pink is the color of princesses and bubblegum but it. Engagingly recounted and even with a bit of gentle humour thrown in for good measure but not ever to the point of author Jess Keating s narrative becoming either silly or feeling artificial of the humour taking over or taking the place of factual explanations and scientific information and above all and most appreciatively exceedingly well researched and scientifically sound with each of the seventeen presented animal species having their common name their Latin species name size diet habitat predators and threats listed as well as there being a location map glossary and basic suggestions for further study and research included Jess Keating s Pink is for Blobfish Discovering the World s Perfectly Pink Animals does in fact and indeed totally and utterly practice what the title claims and shows namely presenting animal species that are pink in colour from insects to mammals including the gelatinous and voted as the ugliest animal in the world blobfish which I for one though do not consider all that ugly but kind of cute And as to David DeGrand s accompanying illustrations while personally I would tend to consider them a trifle too cartoon like and yes even a trifle too brightly and glaringly pink for my personal tastes they do work very well with Jess Keating s text with her narrative And considering the title Pink is for Blobfish Discovering the World s Perfectly Pink Animals and the fact that this is a book entirely devoted to pink hued animal species DeGrand s illustrations do provide a fun and engaging as well as accurate in colour mirror and complement although I personally have not paid all that much attention to the illustrations very much and considerably preferring the photographs of the shown and described animal species to the cartoon like and kind of sillily fun pictorial renderings but I can well imagine David DeGrand s offerings being a hit with the target audience with older children from about the age of nine onwardsNow one of my GR friends Krista has lamented in her own review that flamingoes have not made the cut so to speak that flamingoes are not featured as a pink animal species in Pink is for Blobfish Discovering the World s Perfectly Pink Animals However there actually is a very good reason why flamingoes are generally NOT considered as bona fide pink animals by scientists by zoologists even if the general public does often tend to see them to consider them as being a pink hued bird a pink animal species For flamingoes are born with grey feathers which only turn pink over time because of the type of food they consume a brine shrimp and blue green algae that contains a natural pink dye canthaxanthin which slowly turns a flamingo s feathers pink and in areas where flamingoes do not consume this type of blue green algae and this type of brine shrimp or do not consume as much their feathers will of course be less pink and sometimes not even pink at all But that all being said and while I in fact and from a scientific and zoologic point of view appreciate that Jess Keating has decided to NOT include flamingoes because really flamingoes are NOT pink hued birds by nature but turn pink because of their diet taking into account that many of us do tend to view flamingoes as the pink animal species and especially the pink bird species par excellence I really think the author should have at least mentioned why she has not included flamingoes in Pink is for Blobfish Discovering the World s Perfectly Pink Animals And truly since the included roseate spoonbills like flamingoes also have their feathers turn pink because of the shrimp and algae they consume why are THEY listed by Jess Keating by the author as a pink animal species why are they included when flamingoes are not And if Keating did not want to include two bird species which feathers turn pink due to their diet if she did not want to include both roseate spoonbills and flamingoes in Pink is for Blobfish Discovering the World s Perfectly Pink Animals she really should have in my opinion at the very least pointed out and mentioned in the section on roseate spoonbills that flamingoes also have their feathers turn pink due to what they ingest due to what kind of food they eat
