By Karen Joan VINE VOICE on October 26, 2010
Format: Hardcover
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.

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"

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 read to my daughter often and eagerly, but when she picks this book off her shelf I cringe! It's a horribly written story with no plot, no purpose and no cohesion from one page to the next. It's completely random and not in a good way.

Example: (Warning: Run-on sentence approaching.. Both my review and this entire book.) After Pinkilicious and her pooping-in-the-house unicorn were told to go play outside, they're having a tea party when Peter offers Goldilicious a cinnamon stick which Pinkalicious says is an insulting worm and that her unicorn will protect her but suddenly Peter is holding Goldilicious prisoner in the tree house and throwing crystal balls at his sister so she becomes a pirate and makes him walk the plank but suddenly Goldilicious is missing but wait never mind she's in the baby pool pretending to be a mermaid but then wait she's flying through the air in a hot air balloon so Peter goes to get his lasso so he can catch her the next morning and then she's in a cloud and then a constellation but wait she's actually been waiting for Pinkalicious in bed all along.. Wha-wha-WHAT?!? is right! Also Pinkalicious is a little snoot.

There are about a millionlicious children's books out there. I recommend steering clear of this doozie.

My 4 year old is a huge fan of these books and so I added this one to her collection. Just like the others, this one doesn't disappoint. The pages are colorful and full of things to look at. The story line is cute and this has become a favorite bedtime read in our home. If you have a Pinkalicious fan, I highly recommend you add this one to your collection!
