Overview

It's purple Pinkalicious!

Pinkalicious loves the color pink, but all the girls at school like black. They tease her, saying that pink stinks and pink is for babies. But Pinkalicious doesn't think so…that is, until her friends stop playing with her. Now Pinkalicious has a case of the blues. But could she ever turn her back on her favorite color?

In the follow-up to the bestselling Pinkalicious, a young girl remains true to herself and discovers that pink isn't only a pretty color, but also a powerful one.

Editorial Reviews

The follow-up to the popular Pinkalicious features another full-scale color crisis. Pinkalicious, true to her name, still loves pink, but all her female classmates much prefer black. In fact, these narrow-minded girls have ostracized their former friend. Being blackballed gives Pinkalicious a bad case of the blues. Can she ever recover her hue? A cute story about peer pressure and being yourself.

Purplicious 3.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 64 reviews.

My daughter absolutely loved Pinkilicious. So I purchased Purplicious without reading it first. ( My mistake) I assumed that it would be just as cute and entertaining as pinkilicious. However, Myself nor my 3 year old daughter enjoyed it at all. I thought that the word choices ( ugly, teasing, not wanting to play, name calling was a bit much for a young girl. My daughter was even a little afraid of the mean girls in black on the playground. I should have read it before purchasing. If I had I would not have bought it. I will continue to read Pinkilicious until my duaghter is ready to understand the concept of taunting and teasing, but right now I am enjoying the fact that she gets to enjoy her pleasant, easy going wonderful 3 year old life. I was dissappointed in the book.

This book is not nearly as entertaining or positive as Pinkalicious. It is negative and hard to explain to a 3 year old "what's in". The characters are mean and spiteful, something for a tween age book rather than a child's book. Skip this one!
WestSong More than 1 year ago
I returned the book as inappropriate for my 4-year-old granddaughter. What turned me off was the little girls being nasty and snide to each other. Even though the plot resolves and ends happily, I felt that the initial nastiness introduced and modeled behaviors that would be upsetting to a young child.

The three books, pinkalicious, purpolicious and goldylicious are a great collection. Illustrations are exceptionally good and my daughter enjoy enormously reading them every time.

My 4 your old loves this book (well, the whole series actually). It is a wonderful and engaging story and really opens up a door for discussion on topics such as feeling sad, left out and different. You don't have to like the same things everyone else does.

This is a great book to use during character education sessions. It's a perfect selection to use when encouraging children to examine the importance of being true to yourself.

Being familiar with Pinkalicious, I purchased this for my granddaughter. I am not going to give it to her, she is 5 years old. I found the story placed the emphasis on "girl cliques"'. Although the story ending is "upbeat", too little emphasis is placed here. The moral of the story is beyond young children. At one point in the story the main character is crying in her bedroom because of how poorly she was treated by other children who bully her. In my opinion, this subject matter is not appropriate for the age for which the book is intended.

I am blown away by the perfect message in this book. Our 6 year old daughter has been verbally bullied by her classmates for the entire school year. She has been talking about being a nothing, wishing she wasn't born etc. We just got and read this book and she was bawling - she so related to Pinkalicious - she knows that Pinkalicious is creative, funny, lovable and just a wonderful kid. It make her feel like maybe she is too! For all those who have not experienced verbal bullying, this book may seem harsh but in the world of the social outcast it is right on! The fact that the bullies are never mentioned again is the greatest lesson of all! Seek and find a friend who is nice!

My granddaughter loves the color purple so this book was the perfect gift for her. We enjoyed reading it together.

Purplicious was also perfect as it's another one of my granddaughter's favorite colors and the book showed exactly how little girls think and feel about such things as colors.

What a mean, nasty book. I picked this up for our 4 year old niece who loves the color purple. The book has nothing to do with the color purple until the last two pages. The little girl is sad and is bullied through out the book, and then she suddenly conforms to the other girls and is mean to her little brother. What an awful, dark, terrible book. Im returning it, not appropriate for toddlers or young girls at all.

My daughter actually liked the book even though she understands the concept of teasing. But the kind of negative impact it gave on her mind is just unacceptable. I did not know the content before reading this book to her. And I hated it when I read it. She now thinks that her friends are not her friends any more because she is like Pinkalicious who loves the color pink and all the other girls in her school like black which she doesn't. I will never read this book to her again. I wish she just forgets the content as soon as possible.

After reading Pinkalicious (which by the way my daughter loved it!) I wanted to buy the whole collection for my little girl... What a disappointement! Right at the first page you deal with children bullying and it goes totally opossite on what the Pinkaliclious books shows (that it is ok to like pink). My daughter who likes pink, had to listen to mean girls (from the book) making fun of who likes pink... I don't ever want to imagine my daughter being bullyied at school for any reason (favorite color, preference of music genre etc) and reading this book I just felt I was doing this to her myself! No kidding! Very Very dissapointed!

I took my daughter to meet Victoria Kann after falling in love with her first book Pinkilcious. When Purplicious came out I grabbed it without reading first and took it to my 5 year old. What a waste. If you are going to write a book about teasing then have there be a resolution! What a great teaching moment lost! Do NOT buy this book, it is not well written at all. Goldilicious wasnt any better. Her newest book Silverlicious looks more promising but I will read it first!

One day during art class, Pinkalicious is made fun of by two girls for her obsessive love of Pink. According to them, Black is the new Pink, and Pink is only for little girls. Pinkalicious starts to feel 'blue' even though she tries to stay true to Pink by writing in her Pink Diary that Pink is the best. Back in art class, she meets a girl who is painting a blue cake and asks to use some of her pink paint. She asks why and her answer is simple: Pink is the best! She uses some of her Pink to turn her blue cake into a purple cake. The Kann sisters continue their simple message in a short and cute story: stay true to who you are and like who you are. They also continue their bright gorgeous pictures that create a new world. While Purplicious is cute and well written it stands second to Pinkalicious. Better still, a great book for any young girl.

Terrible book - not meant for any reader, regardless of age. There is use of words like ugly, references to children being so mean to not like someone that they won't sit next to her or play with her just because she likes pink. The character in the story even is scared to eat pink ice cream because someone might make fun of her!! What in the world made Harper Collins think this would be a good book for children?

I have given this as a gift twice now to three year olds and both times they have love it! This is a fun story about a girl who loves purple. The author has also done Pinkalicious and Goldalicious. They are really cute too!

Our 5 year old loves this book. It's simple to understand and she understands the message clearly. She enjoys the character and her cute and amusing ways to understanding herself. The colors and illustrating is beautiful, colorful and makes for a cheerful read. Lauren just bought Goldicious and she loves that book as well. This is one of the 3 books she has to read nightly before bedtime. Little girls will love this book.
