Pinkalicious is funny, original, and very entertaining, even for adults. (It's one I don't mind reading over and over)

Not your usual kid fare - Pinkalicious is likely to become a classic.

Unfortunately, like most sequels, Purplicious and Goldilicious are not nearly as good as the original

Pinkalicious: 5 stars. Manic and Hysterical. "Speed dialed the pediatrician," "Pinkerbelle" and other great lines make this a joy even for adults to read, which is good since you'll be reading it over...and over...and over...

Purplicious: 3 stars, Still interesting and worthy of 4 stars except that the negativity, cliquishness, teasing is better suited for older kids. Maybe.

Goldilicious: 3 stars - An imaginary unicorn called Goldalicious makes for a very promising start, but then the story bogs down in repetition with not a lot of sophistication. More suited to younger kids as Pinkalicious but not as sophisticated or interesting for adults.

Other recent children's books I rate five stars are "Dexter Beasley and the Big Blue Beastie," "Click, Clack, Moo" and "Princess and the Pizza"

GOLDILICIOUS, the third installment in the Pinkalicious series, is by far the best of the bunch. However, I seem to be out of sync with the rest of the population on this. The first two books, Pinkalicious and Purplicious, are enjoyable and my 5 year old daughter loves them; she reads them over and over and over. However, mom has some reservations about both books, in that the kids are snarky to their parents and mean to their friends. Now, my wee one does understand the messages from these two books: that kids shouldn't behave this way, but I have to wonder how necessary the attitude is to either story.

With GOLDILICIOUS, I feel vindicated. There is no attitude, meanness, or rudeness. GOLDILICIOUS is a sweet and enchanting story about Pinkalicious and her imaginary unicorn, named (obviously) Goldilicious. This story is about imagination, creativity, and pure little girl fun.

Author Victoria Kann got it right with GOLDILICIOUS. The story is original and cute, and the illustrations are gorgeous. GOLDILICIOUS is my 5 year old's favorite of the three, and it certainly in mine, too. GOLDILICIOUS is one I don't mind reading to her over and over.

We own all three "licious" books. Pinkalicious, of course, being the gold standard with the creative and captivating plot. Purplicious was pretty much a bomb, though the illustrations were still striking and beautiful. I was crossing my fingers hard for "Goldilicious", because I know the author has the talent necessary to make a riveting and clever story. Though children will be interested in the story in Goldilicious, it still falls flat and is hardly memorable. We will still read and enjoy it, but I just can't help but compare the last two books to the first one.
Next time I hope to see the formula of Pinkalicious followed more closely. Maybe something with more pink emphasis...or maybe with Pinkalicious turning a new color.

Hands down, this is the best book yet in this series. Our daughter loves Pinkilicious, we don't have the purple book which she's seen but never asked for. Goldilicious is great as a parent because the 2 kids in the story are playing imaginatively, creatively, together, and without fighting. They quickly play off the changes to the imaginary tale of the Goldilicious unicorn that the other makes without once asking Mon & Dad to intervene or telling each other "no, that's not how I want to play."

It's one thing for a parent to like the book but our 4 year old daughter has asked for this story every night for 2 weeks now and I couldn't be happier to read it for her over and over.

I am very disappointed with this one. Even my daughter who is an avid fan of Pinkalicious and Purplicious would not let me finish reading the story. I'm glad I just borrowed a copy from the library and didn't spend a cent on this book.

Format: Hardcover
Goldilicious is a fantasy book about a girl, a unicorn, and the many adventures they share. It is written by one of the same individuals responsible for the Pinkalicious book, which was the first of its kind in the series. Goldilicious continues this colourful theme and is one of the latest in this line of books.

Goldilicious is focused on make- believe and it is a little different from other children's books. It is common for literature aimed at kids to include some type of message or life lesson, but this book isn't like that. It doesn't contain anything educational either. Rather, it relies on stimulation of the imagination to carry it through and it will strike a chord with children who have vivid imaginations. The book jumps around from one scene to the next, with the unicorn character doing one thing and then another, including flying, disappearing, and then reappearing at the end of the book next to her friend Pinkalicious, ready to say goodnight to her friend before going to bed.

Goldilicious doesn't really have any core message and it doesn't really follow any specific plot. For these reasons, many parents will not appreciate this book or see any value in adding it to their kid's libraries. The lack of a plot or any sense of direction does bother me a little, but on the other hand, the book is about fantasy and imagination so it makes some sense that the book would stress using imagination on the part of the reader and what better way to do that than to keep readers guessing and not knowing what to expect next.

Goldilicious has some good illustrations and offers some nice colors and it has more actual words than many other children's books. The extra words mean that younger kids will likely not be able to read it themselves.
