The Boy With Pink Hair by Perez Hilton

Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:fun illustrations, tries to send a good message

Cons:tries too hard, many won't like the author or find it hypocritical

The Bottom Line: Trying to find acceptance, doing your best, and changing the negative minds of others isn't bad, but it's a little over the top. My son liked the book and illustrations.


A book with an illustration of a boy with very pink hair caught my eye at the library. Aptly named The Boy With Pink Hair this is a book about being born different and making the best of it.

The boy is told by his parents that having pink hair makes him different but that he should ignore anyone that makes fun of him. When he starts school though sometimes it's hard not to be hurt by mean kids. He makes a friend with a little girl and shows her how he loves to cook and make food of anything pink. One day there is a school event and the stoves aren't working. The principal is worried but the little girl suggests that The Boy with Pink Hair could help. He is able to get food going with the help of the students, even the mean ones, and in the end one of the parents who owns some local restaurants is especially impressed with his pink creations. Might he have a career in the food business?

The book is written by Perez Hilton (an author many will find controversial in writing children's books about acceptance) and illustrated by Jen Hill. I'd say the target audience is 3-7 year olds. The artwork is bright and done in paint. There are fun things to look at in each scene, including all the different kinds of pink food the students make. The facial expressions are pretty good too.

I like the idea of being born different and getting used to your difference, and still doing what you love and being great at it, but it seems a little silly that pink colored food is the 'answer'. I thought, dare I say it, the book was stupid. It wasn't really logical, it wasn't particularly humorous. The artwork is fun and getting the boy with the bad attitude to change his attitude all seemed a little contrite. I didn't really like how no one had a name, everyone just sort of classified by a description.

I would give this book two stars, but my seven year old said he liked it a lot and thought it was sort of silly (there are even pets eating pink food), so I will round it to three stars, but I won't recommend it.

Thanks Patsy for adding this to Epinions for me to be able to review.
