Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Pinkalicious receives white ice skates from her mother, and, using a "cotton candy pink" marker, she remakes them to better suit her tastes. After daydreaming about her graceful skating, she and her family visit the outdoor rink. Rather than gliding and spinning, poor Pinkalicious falls repeatedly. Her embarrassment is further compounded when the ink from her skates bleeds all over, leaving the ice covered in pink swirls and spots. Following an emotional meltdown, Pinkalicious receives a pep talk from Mom and a hand from Dad. She gives skating another go, this time with more positive results. Fans will be tickled pink with this adventure that's just right for beginning readers.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
There can never be too much pink in the life of Pinkalicious. In this level 1 book in the "I Can Read!" series, she has received a brand new pair of ice skates. What could possibly be wrong? They are not pink. Our heroine resolves that by using her cotton candy pink marker to color her skates. When the family heads out to the rink, Pinkalicioius has visions of being a floating star on the ice and instead she is spending most of her time falling down. The moisture absorbs the color from her marker and she leaves real evidence of her mishaps. What a disappointment and Pinkalicious is sad. Dad takes her by the hand and they finally glide about the ice and Mom reminds her that her skates and she are quite unique. Fortunately, Mom has signed her up for skating lessons. For fans of this girls who loves pink—Pink Around the Rink should bring a smile. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
