Reception[edit]

Shanea Goldizen of Library Point describes Pinkalicious as '...a colorful, scrumptious feast for the eyes and will keep your kids reading and re-reading...'[2] Publishers Weekly found that'the artwork creates visual interest to keep pink-loving gals involved in this tale of wonderful-to-wretched excess.'[3]

Adaptations[edit]

In 2007, Pinkalicious was adapted into 50-minute musical. In Pinkalicious the Musical, Pinkalicious cannot stop eating pink cupcakes despite her parents warning her. After eating too many, she is diagnosed by a doctor with "Pinkititis", an illness that turns her completely pink. She doesn't seem to mind, because it is her favorite color. But when it goes too far, she must figure out a way to stop it.[citation needed]

Pinkalicious & Peterrific is a children's television series that features Pinkalicious and her brother Peter. The series premiered on PBS Kids on February 19, 2018, and is produced by WGBH in Boston in association with Sixteen South.[4]
