The Problem with Pink by Erika Tremblay-Roy, translated by Alexis Diamond
Playing happily on their private pink carpet, each day is full of fun and stories for friends Alix, Sacha, Lou and Noa.
From afar, the outside world seeps into their games. A plane flies overhead ? They grow long, long wings. It starts raining ? No problem : they splash in the puddles, instantly waterproof.
But everything changes when they get the terrible news from the outside : the colour pink is for girls.
Suddenly, the perception of others becomes a major preoccupation, muddling their imaginations in the process.
They are boys! This place - this pink place - is not for them. Not anymore.
