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) Copyright Â©Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.

PreS-Gr 2-This collection includes five whimsical tales by Kann. In Pinkalicious (2006), a little girl eats so many pink cupcakes that she turns pink. By following her doctor's advice and eating her green veggies, her skin and hair return to normal. Pinkalicious is bullied for loving the color pink in Purplicious (2007) until a girl in the class shows her how to make the color purple with paint. In Goldilicious (2009), Pinkalicious is playing with her imaginary pet unicorn and it leads to an imaginary war between the girl and her brother, but it's all in good fun. In Silverlicious (2011), Pinkalicious loses her sweet tooth and asks the Tooth Fairy to bring her something sweet to eat until a new one grows in. But the Tooth Fairy is busy, so she sends Cupid, the Easter Bunny, and an elf from the North Pole. In Emeraldalicious (2013, all HarperCollins), Pinkalicious and her brother make a magic wand in a park and take turns making wishes. When the wand breaks, the siblings realize that real magic comes from love and family. Kathleen McInerney brings the characters to life with different voices that are engaging and funny. Pinkalicious fans as well as newcomers to the series will enjoy the imaginative tales about the little girl and her favorite colors.-Jenny Ventling, Greene County Public Library, OH (c) Copyright 2013.

Publishers Weekly Review
After a day of eating too many pink cupcakes (they're "pinkalicious!") a pigtailed girl wakes up to discover she's pink through and through. The pink-crazed protagonist joins several others starring in recent titles (Kate Feiffer's Double Pink; J.otto Seibold's The Fuchsia Is Now). "I cried because I was so beautiful," gushes the heroine. "I even had pink tears." And given the pediatrician's suggested cure-"a steady diet of green food"-the girl is perfectly happy to remain as she is. But when she covertly eats one more pink cupcake and turns fire-engine red, she realizes it's time to take the doctor's advice. A witty montage of photos, clip art and drawings captures the heroine eating every kid's nightmare: "pickles and spinach, olives and okra." The text may be literal and obvious, but the artwork creates enough visual interest to keep pink-loving gals involved in this tale of wonderful-to-wretched excess. Ages 5-8.

This volume includes two previously published picture books (Pinkalicious and the Pink Hat Parade, Flower Girl) and four easy readers (The Pinkerrific Playdate, The Princess of Pink Slumber Party, Soccer Star, and Pinkalicious and the Pinkatastic Zoo Day). The cutesy character's girly-girl fans may thrill to the collection; others will be less enthralled by the not-very-urgent conflicts and pink-heavy illustrations. (c) Copyright 2013.

K-Gr. 2. A little girl recounts her rainy-day adventure with pink cupcakes, which she ate and ate until she turned pink herself. I'm Pinkerbelle! she sings, crying tears of delight as she admires her raspberry-hued complexion. Her mom takes her straight to the doctor, who prescribes lots of green food. But she cannot resist another cupcake or two, and her delicate pink skin tone deepens to an angry red! Horrors. She proceeds to choke down everything green she can find (relish, brussels sprouts, grapes, even a cup of acid-green tea). Just as the formerly pinkalicious girl returns to normal, her little brother, now quite rosy, shouts Pink-a-boo! The digitally created artwork, featuring busy collage elements and big-headed, vacant-eyed figures, won't win any awards, but the fun premise (and cotton-candy-hued, glitter-dusted jacket) will guarantee an audience. Pair this with David Shannon's A Bad Case of Stripes (1998). --GraceAnne DeCandido Copyright 2006 Booklist
