Have we ever seen a vampire that loves pink?
Mister Black is a vampire. He lives on an island, surrounded by all kind of monsters: ogres, witches and other terrifying creatures. Obviously, on the island, fashion is for dark colors: you must impress, yet be restrained. But Mr. Black’s tragedy is that, secretly, he ADORES pink. Walking down the street, he is unnoticed, but at home, he slips into his comfortable fuchsia dressing gown, his pink poof-ball slippers, enjoys marshmallows and basks in his all-so pink sofa. Everything falls apart the day Mr. Black treats himself to a marvelous pink convertible… No way he can pass in town unnoticed in such a flashy car. The whole neighborhood is scandalized! But watch out, he who laughs last laughs best.
As the first picture book published in France by the talented Miguel Pang, Mister Black is an anthem to tolerance and liberty. The author denounces the dictatorship of fashion and the labels we put on people to easily. He offers a truthful and positive message to kids.
