Great little imaginative book with beautiful stickers, especially for those who love pink! Pinkalicious has written to Edgar Easter bunny to remind him not to forget her on Easter. Edgar leaves her a note in her front yard where we see that her family lives in a pink house. Edgar sends Pinkalicious and her family on a scavenger hunt with clues that make Pinkalicious and her family as well as reader/listeners to think of the answers. In the story the author uses many puns, and words that sound like egg or could be spelled with "egg", like "Eggxactly". Along the way each clue is a riddle, and the last clue is for them to go to the place that Pinkalicious loves the most and has the most pink. At first she thinks it is Mr. Swizzle's Ice Cream shop, and when she goes there not finding anything, she realizes her own home is the most pink, and the place she loves the most. The only downfall of this book is that it focuses so much on Pinkalicious,and what she wants and gets at Easter, and her brother Peter is not shown to receive similar gifts and attention. When read this book, one young listener said, "What about her brother Peter? Edgar Easter Bunny left Pinkalicious a beautiful Easter basket over filled with eggs, chocolate, and all, and Peter gets nothing? I don't think that is fair, cause the Easter bunny should give everyone in a family equal gifts. Pinkalicious should share her basket with poor Peter!" We had a long discussion about sharing, and how it can feel hurtful when one or more children can get more attention than others in a family. That it is unfair to make others feel left out or excluded (like Cinderella), and if they had kids they would want to love them equally and what that meant to them. In general the children liked the book, but did not like the treatment of Peter, and that the author excluded what happened for Peter on Easter.
I've read and reviewed so many Pinkalicious books I'm running out of fresh things to say. Suffice to say my kids still love them and I buy each new book as soon as it's available. Eggstraordrinary Easter is as good as all the rest and makes enjoyable bedtime reading.
So it's Easter morning and my daughter asks me why there are random stickers throughout her brand new book from the Easter bunny. I look inside and there is a half empty sticker sheet. When it showed up with a greasy cover I guess I should have inspected it further. Highly disappointed.
My granddaughter loved this book. There was a lot of excitement and fun reading this book. At the end of the story it gave the reader a challenge to find 20 eggs in the story. Very well written and would highly recommend to anyone.
I was browsing the Fancy Nancy books as an Easter gift for my daughter when I came across this book. Thought why not try out Pinkalicious so we shall see once Easter arrives how many times I'm reading htis with my daughter :)
Great Pinkalicious story about an Easter Egg Hunt setup by Edgar the Easter Bunny. My two girls, ages 3 & 5, both love it and ask for it regularly, even though Easter has passed. The only problem with it is that they asked whey the Easter Bunny didn't leave clues to their Easter baskets. Maybe next year... :)
This is a very fun book for Easter. The pages are bright and the story is engaging for your readers. We really enjoyed reading this for the Easter holiday and beyond. I highly reccomend all the Pinkalicious books.
We own almost every Pinkalicious book (and I have reviewed most of them by now), and as I've said before, there is somewhat of a spectrum to the quality of Pinkalicious books. I would put this one as slightly above average. Nothing particularly interesting here, but Pinkalicious does have a sort of scavenger hunt from the Easter bunny and handles it with her usual flair. Overall, I would recommend it for the Easter basket if you have a Pinkalicious fan.
