I Don’t Like Pink! is a storybook app I wrote and illustrated about a little girl named Gabi who eagerly opens a gift she receives from her grandma. It’s a pink t-shirt–but oh no! Gabi doesn’t like the color pink. At all!
Released by PicPocket Books, a prominent publisher of children’s book apps in the U.S., I Don’t Like Pink! explores what happens when a little girl doesn’t like the color traditionally associated with princesses, cotton candy and fashion dolls. The story features a strong-willed young lady named Gabi who isn’t shy about expressing her displeasure with a gift she receives from her grandmother. A visit from a friend right after the present is opened provides an unexpected resolution to the problem, and a fresh take on the meaning of gift appreciation.
Here’s what others have had to say about the app:
