Comments for the Goldilicious

GoldiliciousGoldilicious: 10/13/09

In Goldilicious by Elizabeth and Victoria Kann, Pink's brother, Peter finally comes into his own as a character. The title character is an imaginary unicorn that only Pink (and sometimes Peter) can see.

Although Pink wants to play by herself as a princess with a magical unicorn but little brother Peter wants to play too.

It's fun to see how Goldilicious changes over the course of a day of Pink and Peter playing. She goes from just being invisible to being able to roller skate, having a mermaid form and all sorts of other magical abilities.

As with the previous two books, my kids and I love the collage style illustrations. On a second or third read through the book, take a moment to enjoy the different textures that make up the backgrounds. There are always snatches of words, musical notation and other details that enhance the pages without competing with the story or the characters.

We bought our copy from a local book store. I have nominated Goldilicious for a 2009 Cybils in the fiction picture book category.
