My thoughts: The idea behind The Adventures of Pajama Girl and the Coronation of the Cupcake Queen is certainly delightful and this is a very colorful book. Love the two little sisters. Ellie, the pajama girl, loves to choose her pajamas each night by how they are decorated and dream about the theme - tropical, cupcakes, etc. She and Sis land in the dreamland of cupcakes and become embroiled in the Cupcake Queen's missing sprinkles.
As it turns out, they have been stolen so a lesson in "thou shalt not steal" based on Exodus 20 is subtly taught. This is always a good point in stories and to see it resolved nicely is great.
The actual text has some rhyming words but lacks consistency in rhyme. It is a type of rhyming prose. The illustrations, while colorful and cheerful and filled with gaiety, seem somewhat lacking. This book will still be very appealing to children because of the delightful little girls, the love of sweets, and the resolution of wrong doing.
