Pinkalicious 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 151 reviews.

I give this book a 'poor' rating for several reasons... 1. The way the mother talks to the daughter...'you get what you get and you won't be upset', and then the daughter sticks out her tonge at her monther. 2. The 1st appearance of the father and accompanying illustration are of him ordering her to bed with a pointed finger. 3. The Dr. prescribes 'green vegetables', and text says 'yuck!'. Later negative comments describe vegetables as...'choke on an artichoke, gag on a grape, and burp up a brussle sprout', and more. 4. Also not crazy about the sneaking out of bed, and building a tower to climb to the top of the refridgerator. Why expose my 2 children to these things when there are so many good books out there showing good communication between parents and children, and advocating healthy eating?

I was very disappointed with the series. I bought all three books because of previous reviews I had read, but after getting them home and reading them with my daughters, I was very not very happy. Some of the actions and attitudes portrayed are not what we are trying to encourage in our children. I ended up returning all three books.

Very cute and fun story.  I see all the negative reviews about book sending wrong messages, but I think this is really blown out of proportion.  I understand the point they're trying to make, but if you have kids older than 2 yrs, the vegetable comments/sticking out tongue/girl climbing on top of fridge isn't much of an issue.  Both my kids (3 yrs and 5 yrs) are able to mentally grasp that not all vegetables are yuck (they happen to love many veggies actually), everyone has different likes/dislikes, etc.  It is a fun story because they can identify with the character (a strong female character by the way - yay!), and she is silly and does some things they know are wrong (like climbing on refrigerator - they got a big laugh out of that).  Great story and entertaining.  I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because of all the color pink (I understand why pink, but its super girly with all the pink and princessy type of stuff).

I agree that this book sends an extremely poor message. My daughter is only 2 so I leave out the negative words about vegetables and change a few things up. When she is older and reads this for herself, I won't be able to do that. I'm not impressed with the book in general and that's a shame because this book has great premise and COULD possibly be a great series for girls. The authors should have just left out the negativity about vegetables, the tantrums, and the disobedient little girl who has no consequences for her actions (sneaking cupcakes when her mother tells her no). Such a shame.

Such a cute story and super fun to read! Pinkalicious is definitely the best book in the series. My daughter loves Pinkalicious so much that we are using this book as her 4th birthday theme.

Pinkalicious' is given a bath, but she still is pink. She is taken to the doctors, and is diagnosed with 'Pinktitis'. Her prescribed medicine is to eat as much green stuff as she can, to turn back to her normal color. But Pinkalicious is happy being pink. Even after being swarmed by bugs because she looks like a flower, she still likes being pink. She likes being pink so much she eats one more cupcake. However, she wakes up to find she is no longer Pink but Ruby Red. Pinkalicious does not like this at all. Right away she starts to eat anything in the fridge that is green. Her normal complexion soon returns. Pinkalicious finds that she loves her complexion, just as she is. More importantly, she likes who she is just the way she is. Victoria & Elizabeth Kanns' book is not only beautiful to look at, with many pages full of 'pinkness', her message is simple: love yourself for who and how you are. While this book is centered around a girl, and is aimed for girls, such a message can be understood by many.

I teach preschool and all the children in my class love this book, even the boys and children that don't like pink love it. It starts a great discussion about how much is too much junk food as well. I just wish there were other colors besides traditional girl colors in this series.

I read "Pinkalicious" to my class and they loved it! They especially enjoyed the illustrations. Their favourite part was when the little girl turned all over PINK! The story kept them interested, and they couldn't wait for me o read it again. We also read "Purplicious" and enjoyed it as well.

This is a lovely little story. When I read the review, I couldn't wait until it arrived so I could see what happened! So I read it first before giving it to my grandchild for Christmas. It is delightful! Well recommended. The pictures are really cute!

I am always surprised as to why this book is so famous! It is awful and does not encourage anything good or healthy. First of all, they make "pink" cupcakes, well, what flavor is pink exactly? I like my food to come from nature or at least have some sort of trace of something real. If I make "pink" cupcakes they are called "strawberry" and at least contain some strawberries, not just food coloring!!! Outrageous! Also, the doctor tells her to eat a diet of green foods, which she refers to as, "yucky!" I do not encourage healthy, real food to be called yucky!! So many things are wrong in this book, again, I cannot see why people actually like it and read it to their children! Since I already own it and my daughter seems to like it, I simply rewrite the book as I read it. I refer to the green foods as magic and because they are so good for you they can cure you of anything, even turning pink! HarperCollins should be ashamed of themselves.

I felt in love with this book the first time I saw it. I'm a very pinky person who also likes cupcakes. After read this one I bought all the other books from Victoria Kann. Last month my daughter's 4th birthday motive was Pinkalicious and I gave her the Pinkalicous and Goldilicious doll and the cupcakes interchangeable toy.

This is a fabulous book for those who love pink. My 3 1/2 year-old was given this book as a gift and she loves it. It is perfect for reading aloud and is quite entertaining for parents who will be subjected to many re-reads! Basically, Pinkalicious (or Pinkerella) eats too many pink cup cakes and gets 'a rare and acute case' of Pinkatitus. The remedy? Lots of green stuff that is good for you (YUCK!). The book is written from Pink's perspective. We read this aloud each bedtime recently when friend's were visiting and our 5 year old (male) friend loved it too. My daughter has her eye on another story in the series - Purplicious! We are looking forward to finding out what causes that peculiar ailment! There is also a Goldilicious. I would recommend this book for anyone with a young child, probably between the ages of 2 1/2 and 5, who enjoys being read to - particularly if they are going through a 'Pink' stage.

Bought this book for my niece and she made me read it to her about 5 times that same night. Only thing I didn't like was an illustration where the little girl stuck out her tongue at her mother. I don't have children, but I do feel they are easily influenced and I personally didn't like it. Other than that, I enjoyed it myself.

I gave this book as a gift to my 4yr old niece, she loves it. My sister tells me she's memorized most of the story. I later purchased Purpleliciuos, which is her favorite color.

My daughter really enjoys Pinkalicious. We reread the book after they had the toys at Burger King. It's a cute way to get kids to thinking about eating good foods instead of cake and cookies.

Our 6 year old loved this book and she's not inito reading much yet as it is hard for her. We made the cupcakes and she frosted and decorated them exactly like the ones in the book and she was so proud of them. I did buy her a Pinkalicious doll at B&N last week and will probably add one or two of the other books in this series.

This is such a sweet book for little girls and even boys, too. My daughter is 4 and she and her 7 year old brother love to have me read this to them. And now that my son is reading on his own, the two of them sit and read this together for storytime at night. The illustrations are beautiful, and my kids find all of the pink puns to be be hilarious! It also has a great message about being strong and staying true to oneself, even though Pinkalicious is pressured to give up her favorite love - pink! We enjoyed this book so much that we added the sequels, Purplicious and Goldilicious to our library, too! What a wonderful series!

Since the book "Pinkalicious" was about a little girl who loved pink cupcakes and ate so many she turned pink, I made pink cupcakes for my granddaughters 8th birthday party and gave her the book. Very cute and entertaining book and perfect for any age elementary child.

My daughter chooses to read this book over and over again! The illustrations and story are both a delight! The PINK of the book draws the attention of little girls everywhere, even us "little girls" at heart! The cute lesson of the story is that you need to eat "green"(veggies) in order to stay healthy! The little girl eats to much pink cupcakes and turns pink, her mother takes her to the dr and the dr tells her that she needs to eat green to get better. Of course the little girl thinks its great that she is pink and doesn't listen. She sneaks more pink! Next thing she knows she over did it and is not RED! That is not what she wanted to happen. She realizes she needs to eat her greens and low and behold she is healed! All back to her normal self again and a hard lesson learned! It is a cute book, my daughter loves the illustrations and laughs everytime she sees the pink girl! Highly recommended!

The little girl in this story is in love with the color pink and her mom makes her some pink cupcakes. She loved them so much she wanted to eat more and more. I think this is a really cute book for younger children especially little girls who love pink. The illustrations are wonderful and go very well with the story. They will keep your little listeners engaged.
