    1. My boyfriend recommended this book to me as an example of controversial children's literature. He remembered what made it controversial: the plot involved a transgendered elephant. I read the story and agreed, but thought there was much more to his assessment. At the basic level, this story explains gender constructs. The plot follows a girl elephant that doesn't fit in with her pink-skinned, flower eating, socializing peers. She bucks the trend. She strikes down the false gender construct that [...]

    2. What a great book! It's a forty-year-old book, but just released in the US for the first time. I wish they'd have released this here so much earlier. This is a fantastic book about gender equality.

To ensure the females eat the correct fruit (and behave in a socially acceptable manner), they must . . .Candy Pink’s message—now 40 years old—is anything but subtle. At its basic, [...]

    5. So disappointed in the tone of this story. The idea that female elephants didn't want to wear pink and be locked behind a gated garden while their male cousins got to play in the savannah and the water needed a lot more umph to make a story. This was so transparently 'girls don't want to be treated differently than boys' that it was only a message in your face rather than building an actual story about a girls who enjoy all elephant activities.

    6. We appreciated the message, but this was a bit heavy-handed. May have to try it in the original Italian sometime.
