ABOUT THE BOOK: “EMERALDALICIOUS”
“Emeraldalicious: A Springtime Book For Kids” follows Pinkalicious and Peter on their visit to their favorite park, but on the way Pinkalicious’s wand breaks. She isn’t worried at all, because she knows just what to do. She takes a stick, some vines, and a very special flower to make a magical wand. When Pinkalicious and Peter finally arrive at the park it’s covered in stinky trash! But never fear, Pinkalicious is here with her magical wand, lots of love, and pinktastic rhymes to turn the trash into an Emeraldalicious paradise. Pinkalicious combines magic, love, and imagination to turn an ordinary place into an Emeraldalicious world.
ABOUT THE SHOW: “PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC”
Launched February 2018, “Pinkalicious & Peterrific” has five seasons and seventy episodes. It is the go-to children’s series for creativity and arts. Pinkalicious Pinkerton is unique, one of a kind, and pinkatastic (an original word by an original kid)! Together with their friends and neighbors in Pinkville, Pinkalicious and her younger brother Peter get into all kinds of artful adventures. Based on Victoria Kann’s best-selling picture book series, “Pinkalicious and Peterrific,” for kids ages 3 to 6, models the power of teamwork and creative thinking to solve problems — and very cool, often unexpected things occur when these colorful characters join forces.
