The Hamilton Spectator

“…it describes in delicious detail how these proud Canadians went from pounding hapless teams by 15-1 and 18-0 to how they had to do the proverbial “gut check”, and reach down deep to win. All of this makes Pink Power an enthralling read for middle-school readers.”

Joe Pelletier –

“Pink Power is the best of the (Recordbooks) series, largely because of the author’s skill in writing to a juvenile audience. You can’t go wrong by including a few of Lorna Schultz Nicholson’s books in your kids Christmas stockings.”
