Henry the penguin adores all things pink. Whether it's lemonade, a bicycle, or his favorite hat, Henry stays true to what he loves . . . until a schoolmate suggests that he looks ridiculous in his beloved pink hat. Peer pressure erodes his confidence, causing Henry to question himself. Although he wavers, Henry finds the strength to remain steadfast in embracing his love of pink regardless of what other penguins may say. He learns that everyone will have an opinion about his choices, but they can't control his self-expression. Ultimately, in learning to be true to himself, Henry finds friends who accept him for who he is.

Colette is a small mouse following her heart’s desire to paint. Why wouldn’t she be? She lives behind the walls of a grand Paris museum. She is surrounded by the work of great artists all day. Nothing can stop her from realizing her passion – not even Ruben, the museum guard cat – and Colette's favorite model. By sticking to what she loves, and learning from the greats, Colette is growing into the artist she dreams of being. And she just may create more than one furry painter in the museum.
