In Pinkalicious by Victoria and Elizabeth Kann, Pinkalicious is a little girl who is obsessed with pink and cupcakes. On a rainy day, she makes pink cupcakes with her mom. And she can’t stop eating them! She eats so many, in fact, that she turns a bright shade of pink. Pinkalicious is delighted. How perfect that from the top of her head all the way down to the tip of her toes she is the prettiest bubblegum shade of pink!
Even after a bath, Pinkalicious’s dad cannot make the pink go away. Her parents take her to the doctor who prescribes a strict diet of green vegetables and no more pink. No more pink cupcakes?! No more cotton candy?! Not even watermelon?!
Pinkalicious finds out what happens when she disobeys her parents and Dr. Wink and eats just one more pink cupcake. The result is NOT what she had in mind. Victoria Kann, co-author and illustrator, combines a variety of textures and crazy proportions in her illustrations. Some of the details look like they could have been cut from a magazine or hurriedly photo-shopped in. The result makes for a colorful, scrumptious feast for the eyes and will keep your kids reading and re-reading Pinkalicious.
