Comments for Silverlicious

Silverlicious: 10/20/12

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)Silverlicious by Victoria Kann is the fourth of the Pinkalicious picture books. There is also a series of level one readers for children ready to move on in their reading skills.

As the main character has gotten older, it's time for her to start losing her teeth. Unfortunately she loses her sweet tooth! With it gone, none of treats she's given taste like anything good. Feeling jilted, she also starts to lose her sweet personality.

The reason I don't count the level one readers in the same series is that they are far more grounded in reality than their picture book counterparts. Here, the Tooth Fairy is real and she works with other magical, holiday based creatures: Cupid and the Easter Bunny for example. They even fill in for her when she's too busy.

This magical element gives more room for elaborate and outlandish illustrations. In this book, we're shown the girl's room decorated for a variety of different holidays as she tries to get back her sweet tooth.

Three stars
