Being Pinkalicious is pinkatastic, especially when she's accompanied by her pet unicorn, Goldilicious. Goldie is a roller-skating, kite-flying, high-jumping unicorn who will protect Pinkalicious from the evil wizardry of her little brother, Peter. Together, Pinkalicious and Goldilicious can conquer anything!
This enchanting follow-up to the New York Times bestselling Pi...more
The idea behind the story is okay--that it is fun to have an imaginary friend. It's very girly with princess dresses and a unicorn names Goldilicious wearing rose garlands--so it might appeal to girly-girl types. But the story is told in the most boring and rambling manner. And the little girl is SO annoying, she and her brother have typical antagonistic rel...more
This book mentions the "potty". Heart attack alert! The book has a character that - jokingly - "imagines" the parent(s) as an evil sorcerer. I bet if an experiment was conducted murderers have had a book like this in their part at some point!
I can't get over how uptight people are - namely parents. Get over it! With all of the thing...more
Let me start by saying that, once again, the illustrations are fabulous. Really amazing with vibrant colors and quirky angles. It's a pleasure to turn the pages. In this story, the Pinkilicious princess has an imaginary pet unicorn who dances in the Majestic Magenta Ballet. Kann layers...more
Although Pink wants to play by herself as a princess with a magical unicorn but little brother Peter wants to play too.
It's fun to see how Goldilicious changes over the course of a day of Pink and Peter playing. She goes from just being invisible to being able to roller skate, having a mermaid for...more

But,I like the creativity of Pink's mind.I like the way her brother joins in her imaginary play the way boys will and how she readily adjusts her game to suit him. And of course pink, princess clothes and unicorns will be perfect for all the little Haileys and Madisons and Isabellas that com...more

My 3 year old has her imaginary friends and I think she connected with Pinkalicious' Goldilicious. I think too many parents sit their kids in front of the TV where it tells you what to imagine instead of letting them discover the world of imagination on their own, with friends or even with you.
I also liked that Pinkilicious and her brother played with her imaginary friend. According to the series, they have a great relationship. Another aspect I love. Many times you hear about...more
Maybe, that's why this one doesn't really do it for me. I can't see what they're talking about in my head. It doesn't bother me on the audiobooks of the "Pinkalicious" series that correspond with ones I have already read, since I can see the visuals in my head.
That aside, the voices are wonderful, and the siblings interact really well.
I checked th...more
With that said, I enjoy these books because they are fun to read with my daughter. They are not some of the best children's literature, but I like that Pinkalicious is so imaginative.
In this book, Pinkalicious has an imaginary unicorn friend named Goldilicious. The real meat of this story is actually the imaginary play that goes on between Pinkalicious and her brother. I like that her and her brother start at od...more
We are big fans of Pinkalicious (here and here ) and Goldilicious doesn't disappoint. Goldilicious is of course Pinkalicious' unicorn. She is white, gold and beautiful.
I love the banter between Pinkalicious and Peter her brother. They both have wonderfully, wicked, fun imaginations. I also love how sweet her parents are. They always come through with love and understanding of their precocious Pinkalicious. This is a great addition to the Pinkalicious collection
This book would be good for first or second graders (preferably girls :]) because of its great illustrations and use of imagination and creativity. I would implement this book with a creativity lesson when writing.
