The star of Pinkalicious and Purplicious discovers an affinity for gold, in the form of a unicorn with a lustrous, golden mane. Even though Goldie might be imaginary (she turns translucent whenever Pinkalicious’s mother is present), this doesn’t stop the friends from practicing “pinkerrific pirouette[s],” riding on roller skates and playing hide-and-seek. Initially skeptical, Pinkalicious’s brother, Peter, even joins in the fun. Though the pacing can feel a bit erratic, the effervescent (at times, playfully surreal) digital art and ornamental detailing offer treats for eagle-eyed readers. Ages 5–8. (June)
