Kinda Went Off the Rails in the Middle, but My Girls Love It!
on April 9, 2013
My girls are big fans of Pinkalicious and we have purchased every book. I really mean every book. This story is about Pinkalicious playing on a soccer team named the Pinksters, and they are playing a game against the Ravens. Unfortunately, this story brings back some of the negativity we have seen in other Pinkalicous books. The girls on the Ravens team keep yelling "Pink Stinks". Not my favorite part. Well the game goes along and the teams end up tied. Pinkalicous is getting ready to try to score to prove that Pink is great and all of the sudden, Goldilicous the unicorn shows up and sweeps her off into the sky and then they stop at a bunch of random countries talking to various people. She eventually returns to score the winning goal, but that little fantasy journey in the middle just didn't really make much sense at all. Very bizarre.
All that being said, my girls love it as a bedtime story and my kindergartner does great with it as an early reader. They would probably rate it higher, but there are better Pinkalicous books out there. Try out Pinkalicious: Fairy House. It is great.
