This book was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

My daughter is an avid reader, and first grade was a wonderful year for her, as the ability to read has opened up a whole new world of reading.  She devours books and is always looking for new things to read.  When I came across The Pinkaboos book, “Bitterly and the Giant Problem”, it sounded like something she would enjoy especially over her summer break.

Pinkaboos

Pinkaboos is an empowering new chapter book series for young readers (6-9) that presents the challenges of childhood through the thrilling and magical world of the Pinkaboos.

This is going to be the best year ever for best friends Bitterly, Abyssma and Belladonna as they are starting a new school year at Fright School! As young frights they’ll learn how to chase away the fears of little human girls by entering their dreams and teaching them how to overcome nightmares. But when Bitterly, the most promising fright, is faced with a school bully and some nightmares of her own, she finds help from the last place she expected—the little girl she has sworn to protect. Pinkaboos is an empowering new chapter book series for young readers (6-9) that presents the challenges of childhood through the thrilling and magical world of the Pinkaboos. The world of the Pinkaboos is made up of a handful of best friends, the dream world of children and a Fright School with teachers and yes, even bullies.

This is a chapter book that has 80 pages.  It is great for beginner chapter readers, with bright pictures on about every other set of pages.  My daughter is 7 and has been reading chapter books consistently, and even though she usually has the patience to make it through a book that doesn’t have pictures, the addition of some fun illustrations is helpful, especially when the book has some very unique characters – the illustrations really bring those characters to life!

My daughter’s thoughts:

There was a girl named Molly that had nightmares about a giant chasing her.  Then a Pinkaboo girl named Bitterly came into her dreams to help, and at first she wasn’t sure how to help Molly.  Then she got the hang of it because she had to be the nightmare to the giant.  I liked the story, and the pictures too because they were really colorful.

Overall, this is a fun book that also delivers positive messages.  The illustrations are interesting and unique, and add an extra element to this book.  My daughter enjoyed reading “Bitterly and the Giant Problem”, and the premise of the story has a lot to offer.  There are lots of great messages in this book, such as overcoming and facing fears, not not letting bullies get to you, working together, and so much more.  This Pinkaboos book has a positive theme of empowering girls and encouraging them to believe in themselves.

    That does look like a cute book. Too bad my girls are a little too old for it, they would have loved it!

    Empowering messages are so important. Kids listen to it a lot better than they do listen to us adults talking
