From the New York Times bestselling author of Pinkalicious, Victoria Kann, comes a new pinkatastic tale of fairy-tale characters and sparkling scenes.

When Pinkalicious loses a tooth, it's not just any tooth—it's her sweet tooth! Suddenly candy no longer tastes sweet. With her pinkatastic pen, Pinkalicious writes a note to the Tooth Fairy and tucks it under her pillow...only to hear from Cupid, the Easter Bunny, and a Christmas elf instead.

It is not until the Tooth Fairy finally responds—and works some magic—that Pinkalicious discovers where sweetness comes from.

Silverlicious is a sweet treat for all, especially for kids who are are soon to meet their own Tooth Fairy!

After stealing her brother's cookie, Pinkalicious takes one bite and loses her loose tooth; since it's her sweet tooth, the cookie "tastes like...dirt!" This precipitates SOS letters to the Tooth Fairy and others. The story is both laborious and facile--which describes the art as well; maybe Pink's fans won't notice. We've had Pinkalicious, Purplicious, Goldalicious--it's time to stopalicious. Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Pinkalicious is dismayed when she loses her sweet tooth: "This cookie has no flavor," she complains. "It tastes like... dirt!" So, using mystifying logic, she requests that the Tooth Fairy bring her something sweet to tide her over until her big tooth grows in. She's instead visited by Carlos Cupid, Edgar Easter Bunny, and elf #351; they bring her requested treats, but (as she ought to have known after the cookie incident) they taste terrible. An ungrateful Pinkalicious eventually learns that real sweetness comes from inside, but readers may wonder why it takes so long for the heroine to change her tune. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 5–8.

PreS-Gr 2—Pinkalicious is back with another adventure that is likely to put most adults into a diabetic coma. Pinkalicious's tooth is loose, but when it falls out after she steals her brother's cookie, she loses all taste for sweets and realizes that it was her sweet tooth. She leaves a letter for the tooth fairy, but Carlos Cupid comes instead and leaves her red hots. Subsequently, after writing letters complaining about the candy and generally behaving like a brat, she is visited by the Edgar Easter Bunny and one of Santa's elves. Finally, Tootheetina leaves her three silver-wrapped chocolate coins and an admonishment that sweetness comes from within. Immediately Pinkalicious turns over a new leaf, shares the coins with her brother, regains her taste for sweets and vows: "From now on I am always going to be as sweet as my sweet tooth." The didactic and saccharine text, unpleasant little girl, and implausible turnaround are likely to make many readers wince. The cartoon-style illustrations are so packed with details after each visitor as to nearly be visually assaulting. The letter from Cupid is written in flowery script that is difficult to read. That said, Pinkalicious is nearly a franchise now, and libraries that own the earlier titles are sure to have requests.—Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT
