Even mermaids and the beach couldn't trick my five year old into thinking the story was great
Reviewed in the United States on April 16, 2015
My now five year old daughter and I have been collecting and loving Pinkalicious' adventurous books for about a year and a half now. So I couldn't resist adding this newest release to her collection for her 5th birthday, in the same week!
I don't love it, and I think my daughter was expecting more too. The beachy theme is fun, the "merminnie" named Aqua is imaginative and cute. But there's just not enough substance to the book. The storyline falls flat. Unlike most of Pinkalicious' stories, Pinkalicious & Peter don't learn much of anything here, there's no moral of the story or lesson learned. Just a little part of a day at the beach where mom & dad fell asleep sunbathing and they met a merminnie and played for a while. We were definitely expecting more from this one.
