"Pinkalicious and the Pink Drink" is a charming episode in the "Pinkalicious" series which includes "Pinkalicious," Purplicious," "Goldalicious," and more. Pinkalicious, a spunky, resourceful young entrepreneur, decides she will earn money to buy pink bubble gum balls by making and selling pink lemonade, on a hot day. Deciding she needs no help from her mother, Pinkalicious jumbles together her first pitcher of pink lemonade, using some unusual ingredients just because of their color (beets?). When her brother Peter pronounces it "chewy!" she decides to sell some to Mr. Peabody. He is less adventurous than Peter, announcing, "It's definitely missing something...either that or it has too much of something else!" Many little misadventures later, Mommy offers to help make a second batch of pink lemonade and this time the only pink ingredient added to the lemons, sugar and water is strawberries. Guess what? It tastes great! Pinkalicious succeeds in her bubble gum business venture and shares her winnings with Peter, not quite equally, but close. "Pinkalicious" is filled with whimsical, imaginative, nostalgic illustrations and should completely engage young readers ages 3-7. Its upbeat message of positive personal empowerment through creativity and the value of play and learning to share are valuable thought-nuggets.

Let me start off by saying I am not a big fan of the original Pinkalicious book. My daughter got it as a gift about a year ago and I found the little girl to be rude (sticking her tongue at her mother and disobeying her parents) and the message in the book was not a good one (green vegetables are gross, etc). But my daughter for some reason, loved the book illlustrations, so I would read her the book by editing it myself.
We were at the bookstore and my daughter saw this book and she really wanted it, so I read it real quick to decide if we are taking it home with us or not. This book is great! very cute! Pinkalicious wants to buy gumballs so she decides she is going to make and sell lemonade to raise the money. And guess what color the lemonade? Of course pink! She uses everything pink in the fridge (beets, pink frosting, pink grapefruit and watermelon)!!!! She ends up having to make a second batch with just strawberries (thanks to her mom). But best of all she shares half of the gumballs she bought with her little brother Peter who helped her set up the lemondae stand.
Adorable story and the illustrations are beautiful. I recommend it!

Format: Paperback
Author, Victoria Kahn has really created a fun, colorful, creative character with Pinkalicious. We love all the Pinkalicious books. In this book, Pinkalicious has decided to color her skates with magic marker and for a second I was worried that my daughter upon hearing this would decide this was the way to make her shoes match her clothes. I trudged along, hopeful that Victoria knew what she was doing and kept reading without interjecting. Thankfully, the markers did what markers will do when they touch water and Pinkalicious had to deal with her skates changing and the embarrassment of "everyone seeing" her sloppy skates and the ice.

Goddess was worried for Pinkalicious and was upset that she was crying about her skates. "Poor Pinkalicious". Like every Pinkalicious book, Mommy and Daddy make it all better. Which is one of the things I love about this series. Pinkalicious is allowed to be witty, smart and funny without the cost of Mommy and Daddy looking like total fools. They always save the day. They love their little girl and make everything alright which is why she is so well adjusted.

My son and daughter both love Pinkalicious and with this book being a Beginning 1 Reader most 6 and 7 year olds will be able to read it with ease.

If you are looking to get your children or any child on your Christmas list books this year; WE highly recommend any and all of the Pinkalicious books by Victoria Kahn. We must not be the only ones because, they are never available at our local library.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoy all the Pinkalicious books we've acquired. The illustrations are very clever. The stories are just the right length for my 4-year-old daughter's attention span.

This one reminded me of my own childhood, making concoctions in the kitchen. Loved the face on her first customer.

Miss Kann knows her audience. We look forward to future adventures with Pinkalicious.

Format: Paperback
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS (LOL)!!!! The story goes that Pinkalicious receives a pair of ice skates as a surprise gift, but instead of being thankful, Pinkalicious doesn't like them. After all, they aren't pink! They are plain, boring white. So what does she do? Get pink marker and color all over them. She does not get reprimanded for this, although you can tell the mom isn't pleased by her facial expression. By the end of the book, the mom apologizes for her original dislike of the defaced skates and says that they are perfect. If I bought my child clothing or shoes and she marked all over them... well... it would not be okay. Additionally, in the book when the pink comes off the skates, it makes pretty swirls all over the ice, and the skates themselves end up being a beautiful pattern of swirls. Quite unlike the mess of stained EVERYTHING that would happen with marker bleeding everywhere, not to mention that any pair of skates colored by a small child are going to look hideous. We used the book as an object lesson of what would happen if my kids EVER marked up their clothes/shoes, what they might do if they didn't like the color (first express thanks and appreciation for the gift, then ask if it comes in other colors) and finally, it was a lesson in recycling.

This book gets two stars from me only because the words were the appropriate level for new readers. The plot, however, gets zero stars. Kids don't need to read stories where the protagonist does awful things and then gets rewarded for it.
