Follow the special relationship between Madeline and her Grandfather as they both grow and share in the most magical birthday experiences. Filled with secrets to uncover and brimming with imagination, Don't Drink the Pink explores a number of basic concepts including colors, numbers and the reality of growing older. 


When Madeline turned one, her extraordinary grandfather gifted her with a box of potions, allowing her to choose a different colored one to try each year on her birthday, with only one rule: don’t drink the pink. Each year, Madeline sips her chosen potion and brilliant things happen, but as she ages so does her grandfather.  

B.C.R. Fegan’s Don’t Drink The Pink is a magically marvelous story, so full of imagination, heart, and charm! Fegan has such a wonderful way with words and the story’s rhyming verses flow effortlessly and seem to dance of the page. Readers of all ages will be captivated by the heartfelt story of Madeline, her Grandfather, and a dazzling box of colored potions. With each page and birthday, comes a fun, new potion and surprising effects. Lenny Wen’s illustrations, with their gorgeous soft colors, endearing character renderings, and fun little details, perfectly capture the whimsy and heart of Fegan’s story. 

The relationship between Madeline and her Grandfather is beautifully explored and y’all, those last few pages hit me right in the feels...I’m not gonna lie, there may have been tears shed. There is so much to love about Don’t Drink The Pink, from its bewitching rhymes; lovely illustrations; and stunning story. Definitely a must read!
