Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Pinkalicious is delicious in any language. The whole world loves pink and can't help falling in love with this story about a little girl who can't resist overindulging in pink cupcakes. What happens next will delight Spanish-speaking Pinkerbelles and Pinkerellas. A truly irresistible story book.

Children's Literature - Mandy Cruz
I may be the only person around who has not experienced Pinkalicious-ness. As I read the Spanish version of the wildly popular book I found myself grinning the entire time, I even heard a few giggles here and there. I have, since, been told that is the universal reaction to this ultimate girlie book. One rainy day a little girl shouts "Pink" when her mom asks what color cupcakes she wants. The cupcakes turn out to be so good she makes up a new word for them, hence the title, she does not stop at one though, she continues to eat them long after her parents tell her she has had enough and she learns the very next morning why it was a bad idea. She wakes up pink. After a trip to Doctor Wink she learns that she cannot have any more pink food. What girl, at some point in her childhood, did not want to be pink? Honestly, there is not a better word to describe this book than the title itself. It is genuinely heaven for the imagination. Anyone, not just girls, who loves, or loved, pink will delight in every page of this book. Not just once, multiple times, a day. This book is a bit reminiscent of A Bad Case of Stripes (David Shannon, 1998) because they both express that good food is the key to normal colored skin. This is a very fun book that has yet to rest peacefully on the bookshelf. Reviewer: Mandy Cruz
Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
There is only one word to describe this title—"readalicious!" Capitalizing on a love for all things pink, this ode to that rosy hue is exuberant with illustrations that dance off the pages and colors that seem to be entities in and of themselves. Our heroine, a young girl who adores pink, indulges in one too many of her mother's delicious pink cupcakes. The result is that her entire body turns lusciously pink. "I'm Pinkerbelle!" she exclaims with delight. Her mother drags her off to the pediatrician who proclaims that she must eat green foods to counteract all "that pink." Of course, "Pinkerella" eats "just one more" pink cupcake and arises the next day to discover that she has gone past pink to startlingly bright red. After consuming everything green she can find, she is transformed back to her usual color. As she is hugging her mother in happiness, her dad inquires "What happened to the rest of the pink cupcakes?" and that is when the younger brother leaps out yelling "Pink-a-boo!" Needless to say he is now as pink as raspberry sherbet. Mixed media, including collage and the use of real items like doilies and other odd-a-ments, bring this humorous romp of a book colorfully to life. This title will make a great springboard for discussions about how skin color affects all of our lives, both in reality and in people's imaginations. What color would one choose to be? There are lots of possibilities at multiple levels.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Pinkalicious eats so many pink cupcakes that she wakes up the next morning with pink skin and hair. The color just won't wash off, and the doctor diagnoses her with Pinkititis and tells her to eat green food to get better. Still, when her parents aren't looking, she sneaks just one more treat-and turns red. Startled, she starts to choke down her veggies and finally returns to normal. When everything seems okay, Daddy asks what happened to the other cupcakes, and Pinkalicious's little brother bounds into the room with one in hand, happily showing off his new pink skin. The final "Pink-a-boo!" is sure to garner smiles. The computer-generated collage pictures are bold and appealing and will draw readers into the story. Although the main character is a bit obnoxious, children will be amused by her obsession with pink sweets. Reminiscent of David Shannon's A Bad Case of Stripes (Scholastic, 1998), Kann's lighter confection is a pink lover's dream come true.-Erlene Bishop Killeen, Fox Prairie Elementary School, Stoughton, WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A girl with a passion for pink discovers that the monochromatic life may not be a bed of roses after all. Much like Roald Dahl's Violet, this little girl doesn't know when to say enough, as she over-indulges in the pinker-than-pink cupcakes she and her mother have made. Even when she awakens to discover she is a vivid pink hue, the girl is delighted. However, when her continual consumption of the pastry results in her color deepening to a red, she knows she must listen to her doctor and consume the antidote of-what else-green foods. Kann's snappy prose is filled with subtle puns and jokes-the girls calls herself "pinkerella" and "pinkerbelle"-to keep astute readers chuckling. The tale is over the top enough to engage older readers while the younger set will be fascinated by the thought of becoming their favorite color. Kann's computer-enhanced, full-color illustrations are a continuation of the zaniness. Bold colors and collage-style accents create a surreal landscape in which a child turning pink seems to be almost normal. (Picture book. 5-8)
