With her tutu on, Periwinkle Smith can do ANYTHING!

Periwinkle Smith is a fiercely independent girl. There’s nothing she can’t do: hit a home run, climb the highest tree; fight off enemy pirates; or paint a whole zoo in her room. She can conquer the world—so long as she has on her twirly, whirly white tutu. But when the unthinkable happens and her tutu is ruined, will Periwinkle’s can-do attitude be enough to save the day?

A little girl with a lot of spunk, Periwinkle Smith is sure to jump, twirl, and pirouette her way right into your heart.

Periwinkle Smith and the Big, Pink Spot Reading

Jump! Twirl! Pirouette!

Every kid has that one article of clothing they never want to take off: a superhero cape, a princess dress, a cowboy hat. For Periwinkle Smith, it's her tutu!

Ballet-lovers will instantly identify with Periwinkle's love for her tutu—and her determination to wear it no matter what the circumstance!

Celebrate creativity!

Periwinkle Smith is an artist. Her paintbrush is almost always in hand, and she can create art from anything! Little artists are sure to be inspired by Periwinkle Smith, a powerful role model who teaches us that even a mistake can turn into a beautiful work of art!

Promotes Problem Solving!

Periwinkle Smith has never met a problem she can't find a solution to—even if finding that solution takes longer than she might like. A determined girl who won't take no for answer, Periwinkle is a role model for not letting a few hiccups stop you from trying!

Readers' Favorite Gives Periwinkle Smith 5 Stars!

"Periwinkle Smith and the Big Pink Spot by John and Wendy is a delightful book for young girls.

Periwinkle's favorite clothing is her white tutu, which makes her feel powerful. She can dance, jump, climb trees, fight pirates . . . Then disaster strikes. Periwinkle knows she has to find a solution. But how can she solve this problem and get her confidence back?

John and Wendy show us that we can find creative solutions to our problems when we look at them differently.

Little girls will love Periwinkle and be inspired to believe in themselves and their abilities."—Susan van der Walt, Readers' Favorite

Great, easy read

My daughter was able to connect with the book by loving tutus, having paint on her clothes, favorite color is pink, & we have a cat. A nice addition to her bedtime reading collection & and a clear message. The illustrations are just too cute in the book & we appreciate the custom note from the author to her while meeting at a fair.

My granddaughter loves these books

I met Brooke at a holiday fair and I bought both the Periwinkle books for my granddaughter. She absolutely adores them. The illustrations and story are beautiful.
