This book about a little girl's obsession with the color pink was released around the same time as Pinkalicious, and unfortunately in the battle of the books about PINK, Pinkalicious won, and is now a major children's book franchise. This is a bummer, because this is the superior pink book! I love the absurd humor and the Maira Kalman-esque illustrations seem fresher than the more sterile art in the Pinkalicious books.

This book is so loved by my 3 year old. It is a little repetitive and not a book you would want to read to your kids every single night.
The pink is a bit much and if you read it repeatedly like we do it starts to do your head in!! It makes a great point though.

Pink. Every girls dream...especially my daughter. It was a great read until about half way through when I felt like the morale of the story was being developed but never completed. There was definitely an opportunity for a lesson, but the ball was dropped along the way.

This book is very cute for any little girl that's a bit girly. There is a lot of colors in this book but mostly pink. This book also shows a lot about a little girls personality and how some little girls think their world should look.

I listened while Alicia read this to Natalie. I had invited Alicia to read this one to her during her visit due to the subject matter: Pink. We both got a kick out of the story and thought it had a good point about too much of a good thing. We kidded that Natalie kept turning away and was fussy because the all the pink towards the end was burning her eyes!

I read this book to Jacky and Natalie and I think both really enjoyed it. Natalie like the pages that had lots of color (she didn't really look at the rest) and Jack and I enjoyed the story. Our favorite part was when the mom could not find the little girl (Madison?) because there was too much pink. I learned that you really can have too much pink.

Really funny and perfect for, again, the Pinkalicious/Fancy Nancy crowd but better and way smarter. By the end of the book the girl's own mother can't find her in her bedroom because everything is so pink (including her skin). So it fills the kids' pink want while at the same time poking fun at it.

Unfortunately I bought this book for my daughter without reading it beforehand. She, of course, loves it and I do not. Madison, the main character is a bit of a spoiled brat. The book is painfully repetitive.

PB48 - This book was a little over the top. I didn't enjoy it, however when it was talking about everything being pink the pages were completely pink and that was a good touch by the illustrator.

Its the book that I recommend to those that liked pinkalicious, although it does not involve a cupcake, I think that it will do as a very nice substitute.

Madison's very pink room reminded me of my sister in the best way possible. It would make and awesome rebuttal to any girl in her "pink phase"

The author has a great idea...but the language and development of the story are a bit lacking. But my daughter still loves it.

Very cute. Seven year old requested this as her second book at bedtime and anticipates a sequel: RED, then YELLOW...

A "too much of a good thing" book, but a little long for storytime. Good for a little girl who is in her pink phase.

My pink princess spotted this in the library. Quite cute :-) There's so much pink in this book it's almost oozing :-)

Very cute, my daughter just loved it. It also teaches that one can have too much of a good thing.
