Amelia in Pink, the Sleepless Cat by Jimena Pinto-Kroujiline

About Book

Amelia and her older sister Sofia have a cat. His name is Pink and he loves sleeping. During the day, Amelia and Sofia try almost everything to wake him up, as they only wish to play with him. The girls will learn what a heavy sleeper Pink is and how fun it is to play tricks on him while he is sleeping. These funny tricks, however, leave a very tired and confused Pink. Will Pink finally find out who was playing tricks on him and teach them a lesson?

About Author 

I was born in Colombia, and by the time I was eight years old, I had lived in many different countries all over the world.  First, my family and I moved to Venezuela, where I immediately gained the local accent. Then, it was on to Indonesia, where local people loved to touch my curly hair.  After that, we moved to Germany, where I managed to build my very own first snowman. And we ended our journey in Mexico where, after many tearful attempts, I ended up loving hot chili lollipops. It was very exciting to discover new places, but it also meant that I always had to leave my friends behind.  I had to invent my own games and play by myself until I would make new friends. I guess this is the reason why I always had a wondering mind. 
When I grew up, I studied Industrial Design, and my very vivid childhood memories have always been there to inspire me. I love to watch The Smurfs and Care Bears; I am a huge fan of the cutest kitty of all, Hello Kitty.  And I know I should stop wearing pink and glitter but I just can't help it.

My Thoughts

Amelia and Sofia are sisters and they have a cat named Pink.  Yes you heard me right.  Pink is the color pink.  He sleeps all day and stays up all night.  This makes it difficult for the girls to play with him.  So they decided to play with him while he was asleep.  He would wake up with a variety of things on his body that were not there when he went to sleep.  He was very confused.  

What did the girls do to him while he was sleeping?  Will he find the girls out?  Do you think it made him sad to have a trick played on him?

I find Amelia and Sofia fun and energetic little girls.  The author teaches a great lesson on the perils of playing funny tricks on others.  It is not so funny when the tables turn and the trick is on you.  

The illustrations are so girly, fluffy and cute.  Makes you want to pick up and cuddle Pink.  Amelia and Sophie had a darling clothes which the illustrator created for them in bright fun colors.

The author offers fun activities with the girls on their website. So be sure to drop in on Amelia and Sofia for lots of fun.

I highly recommend this book. 

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.


I received a free copy of this book from the author for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  It is my own opinion.
