Booklist - 02/01/2011 Self-centered Pinkalicious grabs her brother’s cookie, bites, and loses a tooth—her sweet tooth. Suddenly unable to taste anything sweet, she asks for help from the tooth fairy. Instead, she receives visits from Cupid, the Easter bunny, and a Christmas elf before discovering that she’ll taste treats again only if she sweetens her disposition. The digital artwork is frequently overcrowded, but children will have no trouble reading the emotions expressed in the characters’ faces and body language. Those new to the Pinkalicious series should definitely start with Pinkalicious (2006), but the latest book will please loyal fans. - Copyright 2011 Booklist.
School Library Journal - 05/01/2011 PreS-Gr 2—Pinkalicious is back with another adventure that is likely to put most adults into a diabetic coma. Pinkalicious's tooth is loose, but when it falls out after she steals her brother's cookie, she loses all taste for sweets and realizes that it was her sweet tooth. She leaves a letter for the tooth fairy, but Carlos Cupid comes instead and leaves her red hots. Subsequently, after writing letters complaining about the candy and generally behaving like a brat, she is visited by the Edgar Easter Bunny and one of Santa's elves. Finally, Tootheetina leaves her three silver-wrapped chocolate coins and an admonishment that sweetness comes from within. Immediately Pinkalicious turns over a new leaf, shares the coins with her brother, regains her taste for sweets and vows: "From now on I am always going to be as sweet as my sweet tooth." The didactic and saccharine text, unpleasant little girl, and implausible turnaround are likely to make many readers wince. The cartoon-style illustrations are so packed with details after each visitor as to nearly be visually assaulting. The letter from Cupid is written in flowery script that is difficult to read. That said, Pinkalicious is nearly a franchise now, and libraries that own the earlier titles are sure to have requests.—Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT - Copyright 2011 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
