Pinkalicious is a fun read geared towards elementary aged children. In this story, Pinkalicious indulges in so many pink cupcakes that her complexion actually changes into a raspberry infused hue. Her concerned mother immediately takes her to the doctor where she is diagnosed with 'Pinktitis' and told to eat as much green as possible in order to bring her skin tone back to normal. While starting to eat green, she ingests just one more pink cupcake and actually turns even redder. After this incident, she eats as much green as possible until she returns to her normal complexion. As the story ends, her Dad asks where the rest of the cupcakes have gone, and her brother runs into the room transformed into a pink hue and shouts 'Pink-a-Boo.'

This is the first of three wonderfully written books in the series by Victioria Kann. It is simply a fun read that puts a smile on childrens' faces and are enhanced by beautifully colored illustrations. Similar to David Shannon's A Bad Case of Sripes, this book even has an underlying message on the importance of good nutrition. While I thought this book would be geared more towards girls, my entire classroom has enjoyed it and even knows some of the pages by heart.
