Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 1-Popular Pinkalicious and her brother visit a park, only to discover that it has become a garbage dump. The magical princess creates a wand from a stick, kisses it, and proceeds, with verse, to gradually transform clusters of debris into lovely things-birds, a castle, fancy dress, and a boat mobile. The place is finally a glorious garden, but the magic wand disappears into the wind. Pinkalicious promises that the seeds and love they have left will make the entire world "Emeraldalicous." Kann's mixed-media illustrations are brimming with color and detail, the latter perhaps an occasional detriment. Fans will continue their dedication, and teachers may choose to share this for recycling encouragement.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VAα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

When Pinkalicious, the princess of pink, and her friend Peter visit their favorite park, they find it filled with garbage. Thankfully, her wand becomes magic, and each time the friends recite a rhyme about something they love, the wish comes true: “Buckets, bow tie, and a bone. / All this garbage makes me groan. / What I would love is a pretty throne.” Six wishes later, they have turned the ugly dump into a “greentastic garden.” As a follow-up to Pinkalicious (2006) and its three sequels, this is adequately diverting, and the mixed-media illustrations do catch the eye, especially with the dizzying amount of very specific junk strewn across the page. (Later, of course, this junk becomes hearts, flowers, etc.) Using a princess theme to tackle conservation and nature protection does not make for the smoothest of fits. That said, those already invested in our popular pink heroine might just follow the example and think green—maybe even emerald green. Grades K-2. --Julie Cummins

I am a fan of all of the Pinkalicious books EXCEPT this one.

The story does not flow; it is choppy and too contrived. There seemed to be so much effort putting the environmental spin on it, that it destroyed the story. There was a great deal of potential but Emeraldalicious fell flat.

This was such a fun book to add to my collection and now I hope to own all of the `licious books.

"Television, towel, and a tassel. I'm a prince who loves his castle. Please make me one without a hassle!"
This book is about a little girl who thinks she is a princess and has a very big imagination. Her brother and she are on a walk when she falls and breaks her tiara and wand. They make a new one out of flowers and vines. Suddenly the wand flies away. They stumble upon an area that is covered in garbage and a tree that is dying. With a little bit of magic, they turn the garbage into stuff that a princess would have, like a throne, and then with a wave of her wand, flowers started growing where it was clean. She uses the garbage to make other items for her brother and her.

This book was so colorful and the castle made out of garbage was excellent as you could see all of the different items used, like spoons and cups. If you haven't read this book before, don't wait any longer!

I bought this book for my niece for Easter as I have bought her all the other books in this series and she was thrilled with them all, I love the fact that with Earth day approaching Pinkalicious has gone green! So green really is the new pink!

I was rather disappointed by this book. The others in the series have very cohesive stories that my daughter LOVES! This one seemed to try to hard to have a lesson.
