Pinkalicious: Tickled Pink by Victoria Kann was a fortuitous find. Ian had taken the kids book shopping while I was doing a presentation for school. Sean chose a joke book and Harriet chose Pinkalicious: Tickled Pink, a story about Pinkalicious learning to tell jokes.

Pinkalicious ends up in a joke telling contest with one of the Goth girls from Purplicious. She goes home, much like Anne Shirley does in many of the Green Gables chapters, to panic over the contest and struggle to come up with the

What I Can Tell You:
Pinkalicious is still funny! Even my 7 year old son liked the book and has been seen reading it three times in the past 4 days.

Pinkalicious is reading jokes out of a joke book and her friends are hysterical laughing. When Tiffany challenges Pinkalicious to a Laugh-off without the help of a joke book, nerves set in.

When the term "pink" saves the day, everyone is happy, even Tiffany.

Even the "mean girls" in Pinkalicious are never that mean and I am always happy when Pinkaliciou

Pinkalicious went to the library to pick out a book. She got a book on jokes and began telling her friends different jokes. They all thought they were funny. Then another girl at the school thought that she was not funny. She challenged her to a laugh-off the next day. Pinkalicious got worried because she was not sure if she could come up with an original joke. She talked with her family about it at dinner that night, but still did not come up with anything. Finally, in the middle of the night s ...more

I bought this book at a book fair for my 3yr. old daughter. I read it to her a lot,this book has become my daughter's favorite story! It's about a lil girl who goes to her school library to look for a good book. She ends up finding a pink book with gold letters on it. She reads a little of it...and finds it really funny, so she chks it out. During recess she reads the book to her circle of friends...and they also find the book really funny. But another student over hears pinkalicious reading the ...more

I wasn't really impressed with this one, since it was about a laugh-off, where neither joke was even funny.
Pinkalicious checks out a joke book filled with funny jokes, and people laugh when she reads them. A classmate, Tiffany, gets jealous of her, because of this. So, Tiffany challenges her to create an original joke for a laugh-off. Whomever--her or Pinki--gets the most laughs will win.
The next day, each girl tells a stupid joke. Then, Pinki tickles people to make them laugh. I

This isn't my favorite Pinkalicious book but it's definitely a good one. Another reviewer mentioned loving the little brother character and I think I've mentioned the same thing before. (If I haven't I meant to.)
I really like these books for Julia, I like how the kids are displayed - with different kinds of people, people acting different ways, looking different, etc. I like that the "lesson" isn't shouted out at the end of the story. I guess 'subtle' wouldn't be the best word but it does come t

I was surprised when my son brought this home from the library. He usually goes by age-old motto that girls and pink are bad, something he picked up early in school but luckily at that same place the teacher's introduced him to Pinkalicious. Admittedly far girl stereotyping in pinkness and sweetness it provides a story that boys and girls both should find funny and engaging. Challenged by a bully to a laugh-off Pinkalicious must come up with a joke and she does so in her own unique style. My son ...more

This book would be a wonderful "just for fun" read! It has a few bigger words that would be great to use when reading with children who are learning to read larger words and longer portions at a time. It teaches the lesson of being yourself and being confident in who you are, which is very important for the children who would be reading it to hear and learn about.

This is our first adventure into the Pinkalicious world, and frankly, I don't get the appeal.
But. My 6 year old daughter didn't hate it. She didn't ask me to read it again...but she didn't hate it.
Maybe we started with the wrong book?

What can I say about Pinkalicious?! My girls LOVE her books and look for new ones coming out. My 6,4,2, and 1 yr old sat in absolute silence while I read this to them, and begged me to read it again and again. Definately buy this book for the little girls in your life!
My children enjoyed this book. They are really into telling jokes! The book gave us a starting point to talk about how sometimes doing your own thing may not be as good/funny/creative as completing a replica, but it is unique and something you did on your own.

My Bridget has been dying of laughter because of the " pinky, stinky underwear" knock knock joke in this book. So cute! Jeremy said that the first time they read it she was laughing so hard that it was silent.

Pinkalicious checks out a funny book from the library. She takes it to recess where everyone laughs but Tiffany. Tiffany challenges Pinkalicious to a laugh off. So Pinkalicious takes her on and she wins.

You could use this book to talk about how it feels to be nervous.

Deanna 5-years-old: I don't like how Tiffany acted to Pinkalicious because she was mean to her. But when Pinkalicious had an idea to tickle her, she felt happy. I think the book is pretty. I like pink.
Pinkalicious is challenged to a joke telling contest by one of the girls at school, but the catch is that she has to make up her own joke.

Pinkalicious took a little warming up to for me. However, now that I have read several, I do find them entertaining. Plus, my daughter loves Pinkalicious and her independent and unique spirit!

Little Miss is a big pink fan and loves Pinkalicious. I like how Pinkalicious is contrasted with her growing up too quickly peers. The story was cute, I liked it.
