My Favorite Picture Book in 2012


About the Author

Editorial Review

New York Times Bestselling author and artist, Victoria Kann, delivers another exciting adventure in the beautiful world of 'Emeraldalicious.' The adorable Pinkalicious and her brother Peter venture out to visit their favorite place, but discover the park they love is filled with stinky trash, which disappoints them. Pinkalicious and Peter decide to come up with a plan as she creates a special wand of magic, made from a stick and flowers, to transform ordinary into lovely. With a wish, a rhyme, and lots of love, their favorite place is a new place to cherish. The story educates about how to recycle, and how to work as a team. The colorful illustrations are stunning, and this inspiring adventure warms the heart. Entertaining, fascinating, and fun-filled. The story will indeed grab the attention of young readers, ages 4 and up as the illustrations come to live, while the author illuminates problem-solving. Educational, enjoyable, and highly recommended!
