Goldilicious is the third book in Victoria Kahn’s picture book series about pink-loving Pinkalicious, a spirited girl who loves the color pink. The title captures the same whimsy present in the first book (Pinkalicious) that I felt was lost in the second installment, Purplicious. The art, once again, is beautiful, girly, and most of all, pink! The storybook world of unicorns, princesses, and more come across in pastels very well.
Goldilicious features Pinkalicious’ new pet unicorn, Goldilicious. Although imaginary, Goldilicious has many talents, including roller-skating, tea parties, hide-and-seek, and more. Together, she and Pinkalicious fend off Pinkalicious’ brother as he threatens to interrupt their magical moments. But then Goldlicious goes missing and Pinkalicious looks high and low before finding her in the perfect spot.
An aspect of the story I loved is how how the brother taunted his sister about Goldie, then eventually became drawn into Pinkalicious’ fun.
I’d recommend this to Lauren Child and Kevin Henkes fans, little girls who love pink, and anybody who enjoys some magic. You can peek at some of the images using the widget below. Goldilicious is out in hardback now.
