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.

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

Why I liked this book - This is an awesome book for Earth Day! It gives the message; care for your environment and recycle! The illustrations are fabulous as with all of Ms. Kann's books. I really like Pinkalicious' cape, wand, and tiara that were made from flowers and plants. I really like how the story shows that you can re-use some of the "junk" lying around and make it into something great. I think everyone should do more of that. I think kids (girls AND boys - remember, Peter is there too!) 4+ would really like this book!
The point to the story is all about recycling and reusing in Pinkalicious style which happens to come in the color green this time around. Like the other stories in the series the illustrations and beautiful. Lots of green and pink filled pictures. However, no one turns the color pink or green in this book. The story begins when Pinkalicious trips and breaks her tiara and wand. Peter and Pinkalicious us pieces of the Earth to create a new wand. We soon learn that this emerald wand is very special. Peter and Pinkalicious find out how special it is when they end up at their favorite park. Unfortunately, the park is covered with trash. With the help of the magic wand, Peter and Pinkalicious reuse the trash all over the park to create quite a kingdom. Eventually they lose the magic wand but they learn a way that they can keep making the world green!
