School Library Journal - 04/01/2013 K-Gr 1—Popular Pinkalicious and her brother visit a park, only to discover that it has become a garbage dump. The magical princess creates a wand from a stick, kisses it, and proceeds, with verse, to gradually transform clusters of debris into lovely things-birds, a castle, fancy dress, and a boat mobile. The place is finally a glorious garden, but the magic wand disappears into the wind. Pinkalicious promises that the seeds and love they have left will make the entire world "Emeraldalicous." Kann's mixed-media illustrations are brimming with color and detail, the latter perhaps an occasional detriment. Fans will continue their dedication, and teachers may choose to share this for recycling encouragement.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
