Pinky by M.J. Daley–Prado is an adorable storybook for children, especially girls who will love the character of Pinky and her boldness in doing things that other girls of her age wouldn’t dare to do. Pinky is preparing for her first big sparring match and she wants everything to be perfect. Though her name is very girly, Pinky is taller and stronger than all the other twelve-year-olds. She is a green belt in karate and tonight she is going to prove to all the boys that girls rule. Pinky fights under the disguise of the Masked Crusader but will she emerge victorious, since opponent Derek Donaldson does not know he is fighting against a girl? Who will be declared the new State Sparring Champion? The story is all about girl power and conveys a good message to young readers.
The book is delightful and Pinky will steal the hearts of readers with her bold behavior and self confidence. The illustrations are bright and colorful and they breathe life into the scenes and characters. The exercises at the end of the book are interactive and will help readers to look into themselves and discover their strengths; and they also give space for more discussion on girl power. The book is a good bedtime storybook for all parents and grandparents who have girls in their families, and its also good for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries.
The author gives readers a strong and feminine character who will motivate them to be strong and fearless. The story also teaches them to be determined and focused on the things they do to achieve success.
