Overview

Being Pinkalicious is pinkatastic, especially when she's accompanied by her pet unicorn, Goldilicious. Goldie is a roller-skating, kite-flying, high-jumping unicorn who will protect Pinkalicious from the evil wizardry of her little brother, Peter. Together, Pinkalicious and Goldilicious can conquer anything!

This enchanting follow-up to the New York Times bestselling Pinkalicious and Purplicious brings to life a new and magical character that is every bit as captivating as her pinkeriffic owner. With heaps of creativity and a touch of sparkle, Goldilicious glows—from horn to toe.

Editorial Reviews

It was only a matter of time before award-winning picture book writer/artist Victoria Kann added Goldilicious to a palette that already includes Pinkalicious and Purplicious. More fun and less sticky than bubblegum.
Publishers Weekly

The star of Pinkalicious and Purplicious discovers an affinity for gold, in the form of a unicorn with a lustrous, golden mane. Even though Goldie might be imaginary (she turns translucent whenever Pinkalicious's mother is present), this doesn't stop the friends from practicing "pinkerrific pirouette[s]," riding on roller skates and playing hide-and-seek. Initially skeptical, Pinkalicious's brother, Peter, even joins in the fun. Though the pacing can feel a bit erratic, the effervescent (at times, playfully surreal) digital art and ornamental detailing offer treats for eagle-eyed readers. Ages 5-8.

Pinkalicious achieved an almost-mythic level of popularity in the kindergarten at my son's school last year, as several of his classmates chose it as their "student of the week read-aloud selection." The teacher even picked it for the grade level's read-aloud to the whole school! When I expressed some surprise that they kept coming back to this book, my son assured me that everyone loves the book. It seems to be an instant classic. I think we can expect the same of Goldilicious, the third book in this series (following Purplicious). The title character is the unicorn pet of Pinkalicious. She is a ballet-twirling, roller-skating, picnicking, princess-protecting companion. Their play is pinktastic—until Pinkalicious' little brother Peter captures Goldilicious. It is pirate play followed by mermaid splashing, and it is all good fun until Goldilicious takes off in a hot air balloon. Will she ever return? Fear not. Kann gives us the happily ever after we crave. This is a delightful sequel that captures the imagination. It would be appropriate for school, public, and home libraries. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green

This book is so cute! It makes a great gift. Any children will love this series.
Parkers_Mom More than 1 year ago
This book is good but definitely not as engaging & in my opinion good as the Pinkalicious. Pinkalicious rocks & I'd suggest it for anyone with a little girl but I was somewhat disappointed with Goldilicious. The story starts off strong in the first few pages but then seems to drop off halfway thru the book. There is some kind of disconnect there that doesn't keep any kind of flow. It's got great illustrations and the awesome Pinkalicious character but other than that I think it falls a bit short.

My daughter absolutely loved this book. We read it together the first time and I could her her in her rooms other times making up stories to the very colorful pictures. The characters interact well and the story line is beautifully done!

It was a great book for children. Great illustrations, you can tell Goldie is imaginary.

My kids (who are 5) enjoyed the story of Goldilicious, however, they haven't seemed to get too attached to this one as opposed to Pinkalicious and Purplicious. In fact, they keep asking for the others, but not this one to be re-read. As a parent, I did feel that in this particular story, Peter, the brother, seemed to be a bit mean spirited, but it did provide for opportunity to teach some appropriate lessons. The illustrations are lovely, the book starts off well, but seems to drag on and loose its way somewhere in the middle. Its a good library read, not a purchase.

My daughter is 4 and loves this book! We also have Pinkalicious. They are great for bedtime or anytime. We read them over and over again.

Nothing close to Pinkilicious. Story line is, well, weird -even for a toddlers book.

Victoria is not on a roll. Loved her first book, but the second and third books are a waste of time. This one is very oddly written with a story that my kids (3 and 5) did not like at all. Hope her next one is b etter because the illustrations are wonderful.

This book has kept my five year old granddaughter's attention very well. The illustrations are colorful and fun for a young child to follow. The story has also kept her attention very well. She requests this book to be read over again quite frequently, and has areas that she loves to be the one "reading". The only area I did not like is the attitude of the main character. I feel it is not a great example for a child, but discussing this attitude works quite well for us. The other books by this author tend to have a much stronger lesson with this character.

We bought this book when we got the other Victoria kann books and we loved it just as much.. Cute story.

As a mom I appreciate the child-like imagination that the book includes. My 3-year-old enjoys the story, looking for Peter who is always lurking around with the desire to join Pinkalicious in her play and looking for Goldilicious in her different roles/forms.

It is a cute story but I was looking for a book that had repetitive words so my 5 year old can read the book alone. It is hard read for a child that is not still educated on a lot of words.

I gave this book to my granddaughter for christmas and it was her favorite gift!!! She actually screamed when she opened it. This is the third book of the series she has received and she loves all the books.

I bought Goldilicious for my granddaughter and she loves it! The story is fun and the characters are interesting as well as the story line. She has several other books by Victoria Kann.

The Author had a great story in Pinkalicious but this was not close. No literary value.
