Follow the special relationship between Madeline and her Grandfather as they both grow and share in the most magical birthday experiences.

 My little girl and I were so excited when we had the opportunity to read B.C.R. Fegan's newest book 'Don't Drink the Pink'. This book is very imaginative, with a quirky grandfather and a little adventurous granddaughter who have a very special bond. The book offers a whimsical story with science and magic rolled into one.

Grandpa Gilderberry is very creative in science and each year brings his very eager granddaughter Madeline a special gift for her birthday. Each year he presents Madeline with a variety of potions each one a different color, each one offering something special for the day. Maybe she will become invisible or maybe she will fly. She can pick any potion she wishes to have as a birthday gift, but she cannot pick the pink. This one is always left until grandpa Gilderberry gives the okay.

The book is very straightforward as if being told through a child's point of view. Within the story, Madeline describes each birthday, the color she chooses, and the abilities or experiences that she enjoys. For example, her second birthday she becomes a mermaid for the day.

With each birthday Lillian was so excited to see what ability the new colored potion would give Madeline. This book offers joy and curiosity for growing minds. The story offers rhyme and repetition which Lillian was able to recognize and enjoy. The story itself covers a 15-year span of birthdays, colored potions, and the experiences each potion gives Madeline.

My little girl and I love this book and have read it multiple times. The story is fun and shows the importance of family.
