Pinkalicious and the Pink Pumpkin: 05/27/12
Pinkalicious and the Pink Pumpkin by Victoria Kann is a Lift-the-Flap addition to the Pinkalicious series of books. Pinkalicious and her family are searching for the perfect pumpkins as Halloween is around the corner.
Pinkalicious, having heard of the Pink Pumpkin Patch decides that's the place to go. She goes expecting a field of pink pumpkins and is disappointed to find orange pumpkins grown by a man with the surname Pink. Undaunted, she searches high and low for a truly pink pumpkin.
My daughter enjoyed lifting the flaps to help Pinkalicious in her search. And while Pinkalicious does (sort-of) find a pink pumpkin, my daughter and I both wished for something more for our pink loving heroine. As my daughter put it — if too much pink frosting can turn a girl pink — why can't there be a real pink pumpkin?
