Missing Pinky is a beautifully illustrated book about Lucy’s beloved blanket Pinky. Pinky has been made by her grandma, and now it has gone missing. In a desperate search, she looks in all the usual places, the almost possible and even the almost impossible spots. Children will love the story and the fantasy. You will find some lovely details such as the cat asleep on the bookshelf, the Grandma soap, and the magpie with a sock. International teachers will find a few Australian terms such as chook house, ute and boot. The more you look, the more you find to delight.
The book is by Juliet Williams and Luisa Gioffre-Suzuki.
