Overview

Perfect for fans of Amélie, this is a charming story about the power of friendship, love and pink polka dots to turn rainy days into sunny ones and sadness into joy.

When it's bright outside, Adele is the heart of her community, greeting everyone who comes into her café with arms wide open. But when it rains, she can't help but stay at home inside, under the covers. Because Adele takes such good care of her friends and customers, one of them decides to take care of her too, and piece by piece leaves her little gifts that help her find the joy in a gray, rainy day. Along with cute-as-a-button illustrations, The Pink Umbrella celebrates thoughtful acts of friendship.

The Pink Umbrella has beautiful and soft illustrations. With a wonderful message of friendship and trying new things. It's an incredibly delicate story with a sweet ending. I love the hint of romance between Adele and Lucas. I'm not sure if the kids, who are the intended audience, will pick up on it. But I'm sure all of us adults did.
