Pinky Chenille and the Rainbow Hunters is a delightful rhyming story that young children will thoroughly enjoy. When Pinky and Princess Adeline discover all of the colors are gone from Addendale, a special land as you look past Mars, they begin searching everywhere, looking for the missing colors because everything is black and white. As each color comes back, they explain that they are mad at all of the other colors because they have been mean and each one has decided to hide. When nothing has any color, they decide to work together because a world with no color is no fun. The conversation continues among the colors, all in rhyme, until everything has its color back. The pictures highlight both the colorless and the colors returning in a way that is eye catching and child pleasing.

I read Pinky Chenille and the Rainbow Hunters to my almost four-year-old granddaughter and she wanted to hear it over and over again. I was pleased with the lesson she was learning about friends getting along and the need to be nice to everyone by working together. She enjoyed the rhymes and thought Pinky and the Princess were great. It was a lovely bedtime story and gave her a chance to ask questions about her behavior as well as her friends. Author Sharon Sayler has put together all of the elements to grab the attention of a young child reader and offer a fun story with a good lesson. There are activities at the end of the story connected to the theme and great for children who are just learning and those who know how to read. This is a winner and one I will be sharing with my granddaughter over the next several years.
