Comments for Purplicious

PurpliciousPurplicious: 03/19/09

Two of the most popular night time books in our house right now are Pinkalicious and Purplicious by Elizabeth and Victoria Kann. Boy will my kids flip when they hear that Goldilicious is coming out this June.

In Purplicious, Pinkalicious is a little older, maybe having gone from kindergarten to first grade. Her schoolmates have decided to give up on their younger obsessions, declaring "pink is passé." The new pink is black.

At home though Pink finds no comfort from her family. Not in a house where her parents and brother are almost as crazy about pink as she is. She can't escape the color and it depresses her as her diary shows.

What Pink ultimately learns is that it's okay to be different from the "in crowd." She does find her own niche with a new friend. She also learns that pink mixed with light blue makes a lovely shade of purple.

As a former Goth who went through a phase of wearing almost nothing but black and still consider black one of my favorite colors, I find Purplicious especially touching. Fancy me with two children who are nuts about the color pink. I have had to come to terms with the color as it's now a constant part of my life.
