Reviewed by Bex Disclosure: This ebook was provided by the author in exchange for an HONEST and not necessarily positive review. Pinkaboos: Butterfly and the Giant Problem is an entertaining read with a fabulous, supportive message. Reading this book to my own six-year-old, was a delight.   We were kept entertained, not only by the humour, but by the wonderful illustrations too. The storyline enabled me to open up really useful discussions with my child, that were effortless and pressure free. And by the end of the read, I felt positive the story had created an important impact on my child. Pinkaboos: Butterfly and the Giant Problem is a book I'll happily re-read with my child and has my 'mum' seal of approval.

Dare I say that if you take a bit of Harry Potter and some Monsters Inc and mix them together you get the Pinkaboos?   Yes, I will say it!  The Pinkaboos are that awesome! Bitterly and the Giant Problem begins in a very thrilling and imaginative way and the rest of the story does not disappoint!   It’s a really fun story, but there’s a serious side too.  It’s easy care about and emphasize with Bitterly — the issues she deals with are the same issues we have all dealt with at one time or another — bullies, facing your fears, and empowering yourself to change your situation.  The story is wonderful and gives the reader much to think about — even after the story ends.  And speaking of the story being over, bring on the Pinkaboos #2! I only had a couple of quibbles:  (1) I felt that “Holy poop!” [page 13] might not have been the best response from Abyssma.   It is suggestive of a curse word, but very obviously, the authors do not go there at all.  But still, I felt another phrase might have been better.  (2)  I found it a bit unsettling that Bitterly, and her fellow classmates, slept in coffins [page 31]. isniffbooks[dot]wordpress[dot]com Disclosure:  I received a complimentary review copy from Zeta Comics.  The opinions are my own.
