A girl with a passion for pink discovers that the monochromatic life may not be a bed of roses after all. Much like Roald Dahl's Violet, this little girl doesn't know when to say enough, as she over-indulges in the pinker-than-pink cupcakes she and her mother have made. Even when she awakens to discover she is a vivid pink hue, the girl is delighted. However, when her continual consumption of the pastry results in her color deepening to a red, she knows she must listen to her doctor and consume the antidote of-what else-green foods. Kann's snappy prose is filled with subtle puns and jokes-the girls calls herself "pinkerella" and "pinkerbelle"-to keep astute readers chuckling. The tale is over the top enough to engage older readers while the younger set will be fascinated by the thought of becoming their favorite color. Kann's computer-enhanced, full-color illustrations are a continuation of the zaniness. Bold colors and collage-style accents create a surreal landscape in which a child turning pink seems to be almost normal. (Picture book. 5-8) (Kirkus Reviews)
