I think I am a little too critical of children's books. Being a mom, I really try to think of what is a good lesson for children and what isn't. I did think this book was cute and fun, but there were a few little things that bothered me. With that said, my daughter loves it, and that's what really matters I guess.

I loved how creative Zoe was. She really loved her cupcakes and love playing make believe. And it's amazing how well a little girl can bake!! Like a lot of little girls, she also loves

Such a cute idea for a story! This is a story about a little girl, who bakes cupcakes all the time for her and her stuffed animal friends, but every time she bakes, her mean brother and his friends come out to eat them up before she can. One day, she bakes a wish into her cupcake recipe and wishes to be a princess. Then the wish comes true and she spends the day in an elaborate palace with all of her magical friends. After she goes back to being an ordinary girl, she makes "special" cupcakes for ...more

This book is absolutely adorable! The concept is sweet, and sure to appeal to most children — and not just girls! Even my 8-year-old son said he thought it was a good story. It was a touch silly, a dash of cute, and a whole lot of fun.

The illustrations are colorful and fun. My youngsters had fun simply looking at the pages, often to the point of derailing our reading! And, um, what’s not to love about a bunch of colorful, yummy-looking cupcakes? Best part? A recipe for cupcakes (and frosting) fr

A deliciously written books for fans of cupcakes, and fairytales, this a children's book I highly recommend picking up. We absolutely loved it. Having a little girl who LOVES all things pink, cupcakes and imaginative play, this was the perfect book for her. I've loved all the times we've sat together reading this book. The story is simply adorable as are the illustrations. You can't go wrong with a cute story, adorable illustrations, and having a recipe for cupcakes included in the back of the b ...more
Zoe is frustrated by her brother Ralph's constant snitching of the cupcakes she bakes. After baking a wish into her food, she becomes a princess and makes friends with the animals in her kingdom. When that first wish actually works, she bakes another special batch just for Ralph and his friends. The sly text and illustrations, created with acrylics on gessoed watercolor paper, will certainly make many young girls smile since Ralph gets just what he deserves. Ah, if only such magic actually worke ...more

A fun addition to a Food, Magic, Make-Believe, or Family themed storytime. Prop-friendly and practically shouting suggestions for your storytime craft or snack, this story will be a hit with all the girls and mothers in the audience--and probably anyone with siblings! Make sure to include another tale to hook the boys.

If you are a stickler for proper grammar, check a final published copy before using this title; mine is a galley and has a couple of minor (but obvious) errors in it.

will enjoy this tale. It is an adorable tale of sibling rivalry and the power of the imagination.

No real problems are solved in Pink Cupcake Magic but the tale is fun and the illustrations perfectly delightful. I can’t stop myself from flipping through just to view the pictures every time I walk past this book!

Really cute - would be so fun to make cupcakes after this story. Soooo painfully girly. Would also be fun for a princess party.

These are the types of book covers my four year olds are currently drawn to ... pink, princess, sparkly. A cute story about imagination. They loved that too!

Predictable, but cute. And every girl with annoying older brothers will love it! And wish for magical cupcakes.

Zoe not only loves cupcakes, she loves to bake them. Her older brother also loves cupcakes, and whenever Zoe makes a batch, Ralph and his hungry guy friends would eat nearly all the cupcakes Zoe baked. Zoe is also enamoured with princesses as much as she loved cupcakes, often pretending to be a genuine princess. One day she wishes really hard, and her cupcakes became magical. While on a walk with her stuffed animal friends, they decide they will return to Princess Zoe's castle and eat cupcakes. ...more
