You might think from looking at the cover of Pinkalicious by Elizabeth and Victoria Kann that the book is in Harriet's collection but you'd be wrong. It's actually Sean's book because it covers things near and dear to him: the color pink and baking cupcakes.
On a rainy day, a mother and daughter decide to kill time by baking cupcakes. The daughter insists on making them pink: pink cake and pink frosting. When they are done she spends the rest of her day eating them until she ends up turning pink!
Most of Pinkalicious is about the downside of having too much of a good thing. The young girl learns that being completely pink isn't all that great. Of course, like most children her age, she doesn't learn her lesson all at once. Sean likes the silliness of what happens to both the girl and later her baby brother. I like watching the concerned and confused parents trying to fix the problem. Parenting so often seems to be a series of bizarre events that no parenting book could ever cover.
I was shocked to realize that the author of this (which my daughter loves) lives somewhere in PA and is a member of a writer's group I belong to. It's a small world...
