That old adage to 'be careful what you wish for' is certainly in evidence in this picture book for youngsters three years of age and older. From the time she was a toddler Madison loved the color pink. As the little girl grew older, she became fixated on the color and everything she had from clothing to toys had to be pink.

Not only did that eventually become a rather boring situation color wise, but one day Madison's mother came into the little girl's pink bedroom and couldn't find her. Madison was there but she had colored her face and hands pink and, for all practical purposes, had become invisible in the all pink room.

Even though Madison waved her arms in the air and called out, all her mother saw was pink. 'Everything was pink. Everything was double pink. Everything was too pink.' Too pink? Yes, too pink! Where had all the colors gone?

Oh, my goodness! What a predicament. When Madison tried to erase some of the pink from her shoes, arms, hands, and face, nothing happened. It wouldn't come off!

Now would Madison be double pink forever? Not really, but I'll let you discover how she brought a little color back into her life. You'll love this story about a little girl who actually had too much of a good thing (or at least one color) and perhaps you'll see there is an important lesson here too. At least let's hope so!
