From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K—Violet is looking forward to attending the "Pink Girls Pink-nic" with her mom. Dressed from head to toe in her favorite color, she thinks about the crafts they will make and the games they will play. All that changes when her mom wakes up that morning covered with pink spots. The only other female in the family is the cat, but Pinky can't take her. Fortunately, Violet's dad doesn't mind wearing pink for the day, and, of course, he's the hit of the party. Rendered in acrylics, the illustrations are humorous and lively. Fans of Victoria Kann and Elizabeth Kann's Pinkalicious (HarperCollins, 2006) will enjoy this pink-themed tale.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada

Harper, author of the Just Grace and Fashion Kitty books, has targeted a slightly younger audience for her foray into the world of girls passionately in love with pink. In this confection, full of bubblegum color, a small bunny is looking forward to a “pink-nic” with other “pink girls” and their moms. Alas, her own bunny mother has come down with a pink-dotted illness, and Dad is recruited to attend the everything-rosy affair. Tragically, his only pink possession is a tie. In a flurry of creativity, after he suggests his daughter “pink me up,” the small girl uses pink tape to put stripes on his pants, pink stickers to liven up his jacket, and more. Soon Dad is, she proclaims, “Perfectly pink. But not as pink as me!” Harper's pictures have a flat, childlike quality, and the story moves along in vignettes that mimic the style of a graphic novel. This is sure to be a hit wherever girls prefer pink—and isn't that just about everywhere? Preschool-Grade 2. --Karen Cruze
