Kathryn's Reviews > Pinkalicious
Okay, it IS better than "Goldilicious" in terms of a cohesive story, but I still was not charmed by this annoyingly pink-and-sparkly book with the cartoonish illustrations and ambiguous line on proper behavior. The little girl loves pink things, but can't stop eating the pink cupcakes even after her mother tells her not to. And then the girl turns pink. Instead of having remorse for her actions, she is thrilled that SHE is now pink! She eats even MORE of the forbidden cupcakes (stealing them from the top of the fridge!) and is only remorseful when she turns RED from over-consumption. Oh, horror! Let us not care about right/wrong or listening to our parents--instead let us only care about how we look. What a dismal message to send to our children!!!
