Pinkalicious: School Rules!

Pinkalicious has headed back to school for a new year - she really likes her teacher, Mr. Pushkin and she has some friends in her class... but she downright misses Goldilicious (her unicorn, nicknamed Goldie). With Goldie, school could be pinktastic, so Pinkalicious decides to take Goldie along with her one day. The morning starts out a bit on the rough side, but Mr. Pushkin agrees that Goldie can stay, as long as Pinkalicious can teach her the school rules. Of course, that's just what Pinkalicious does and together, they have a very successful day at school!

The book is cute - Pinkalicious fans will be thrilled with this newest title. While I wouldn't exactly call it a back-to-school book, it definitely would classify if you used it in such a manner to promote the idea of going back to school and stress the importance of following school rules.
