My girls (ages 3 and 6) are big fans of Pinkalicious and we have purchased every book. We pre-ordered this book when it came out and have had it for a while. My oldest chose it the other night for Daddy Double Story Night (bedtime stories from Daddy with both girls when Mommy is not home), so it was my first time reading it with them. This turned out to be a great lift-the-flap book. It is another one of those very happy stories with Pinkalicous and her brother Peter being happy kids. The best part about the story is that it is very positive throughout with no "Mean Girl", "Pink Stinks" negativity that is found in some of the books. Peter does trick Pinkalicous a few times, but it is all in good fun. The story is all about Pinkalicous and Peter going to visit Mr. Pink's farm. Pinkalicous expects all the pumpkins on the farm to be pink, so she is surprised when the pumpkins are plain old orange. Undeterred, she goes on a mission to find that elusive Pink Pumpkin somewhere on the farm. Despite that tricky Peter, she perseveres and we end up with a happy ending to the story. It turns out to be a really happy story that is totally based in reality with no crazy, unrealistic fantasy journey in the middle of the book, like some of the Pinkalicous stories. Both girls really enjoyed the book and loved taking turns lifting the flaps. My 3 year old, who is just discovering Pinkalicious, wanted to go through it again by herself to lift all the flaps one more time before bed.
Long story short, this is a fun lift-the-flap book that has a positive and fun story with a happy ending, great artwork and is a great reading book for more advanced young readers. A great Pinkalicious book. Highly Recommended!
