It’s purple Pinkalicious!

Pinkalicious loves the color pink, but all the girls at school like black. They tease her, saying that pink stinks and pink is for babies. But Pinkalicious doesn’t think so…that is, until her friends stop playing with her. Now Pinkalicious has a case of the blues. But could she ever turn her back on her favorite color?

In the follow-up to the bestselling Pinkalicious, a young girl remains true to herself and discovers that pink isn’t only a pretty color, but also a powerful one.  


One day during art class, Pinkalicious is made fun of by two girls for her obsessive love of Pink. According to them, Black is the new Pink, and Pink is only for little girls. Pinkalicious starts to feel ‘blue’ even though she tries to stay true to Pink by writing in her Pink Diary that Pink is the best. Back in art class, she …moreIn Victoria’s and Elizabeth Kann’s second book Pinkalicious’ journeys continue. This time Pinkalicious learns that there is another beautiful color than Pink.

One day during art class, Pinkalicious is made fun of by two girls for her obsessive love of Pink. According to them, Black is the new Pink, and Pink is only for little girls. Pinkalicious starts to feel ‘blue’ even though she tries to stay true to Pink by writing in her Pink Diary that Pink is the best. Back in art class, she meets a girl who is painting a blue cake and asks to use some of her pink paint. She asks why and her answer is simple: Pink is the best! She uses some of her Pink to turn her blue cake into a purple cake.

The Kann sisters continue their simple message in a short and cute story: stay true to who you are and like who you are. They also continue their bright gorgeous pictures that create a new world. While Purplicious is cute and well written it stands second to Pinkalicious. Better still, a great book for any young girl.
