I liked this book because it teaches its audience a good lesson about being kind to others. In the book, Pinkalicious looses a tooth and all of a sudden all sweets that she eats taste disgusting! She's lost her sweet tooth!! That night, she leaves a note for the Tooth Fairy to please give her something sweet so that she can taste sweets again. When Pinkalicious wakes up the next morning, there is a note from Cupid that the Tooth Fairy had an emergency in New Zealand so she asked him to visit Pinkalicious. Pinkalicious was very upset that the Tooth Fairy didn't come and was even more upset when she discovered that the candy hearts he'd left her were hot tamales. That night she left Cupid a note under her pillow explaining how she really needs the Tooth Fairy to come giver her something sweet and that the candy hearts he gave her were "disgusting." That night Pinkalicious decided to stay up all night to try and take a picture or Cupid, but she wound up falling asleep. When she woke up the next morning, there was a note from the Easter Bunny explaining that the Tooth Fairy had to help an elephant in India who has a toothache but that she asked him to come. Once again, Pinkalicious was upset and left the Easter Bunny a note saying that she needs the Tooth Fairy and that the jelly beans had "no flavor." The next morning Pinkalicious woke up to three candy canes from Elf #351. He left her a nice note that said he hopes she enjoys the candy canes. Pinkalicious was very upset that the Tooth Fairy still hadn't come. Before bed that night, she left Elf #351 a note thanking him for the candy canes but that "they tasted bad." She also asked him to please send the Tooth Fairy. Finally, the next morning Pinkalicious woke up to three silver coins and a note from the Tooth Fairy. She wrote to Pinkalicious that sweetness comes from within. Pinkalicious thought about what that meant and thought about how she'd treated everyone who left her treats this week. She decided to share her chocolate coins with her brother and then she could taste sweets agains! The main idea of this story is to be kind to others. I liked the illustrations in this book. The letters that each of the characters wrote looked like they came from the character. For example, the Easter Bunny's letter was in the shape of an egg and the writing was in pastel colors. I think this book does push the readers to think about broader topics. After a child reads this book they may think about how they treat others and if they are truly "sweet" on the inside. ( )

This is just a fun and silly book to read to students.

Silverlicous was a good book, but it was not one of my favorite books. The story focuses around a young girl who loses her tooth. The tooth that she lost she believes to be her sweet tooth. She writes letters to the tooth fairy asking her to bring different sweet treats so that she is able to taste sweets again. While this was not one of my favorite books there were aspects of the book that I really do like.
In the book Pinkalicious writes letters to all the different holiday characters who come to visit her while she sleeps. The way the author did this was she wrote the letters in the illustrations. That way when you are reading the story you actually get to read the letter that she is writing in the letter format. I think that this is a fun aspect of the book. It keeps the reader engaged and allows them to feel like they have a connection to the story and to the characters.
I also enjoyed how the book goes through all the different holiday characters. They each have a different way that they decorate Pinkalicous’s room and the illustrations really help to enhance the story on these pages. For example cupid is the first to visit her. In her room he completely decorates it with hearts and streams and balloons. The illustration takes up both ages and shows the reader all the fun decorations. The illustrations throughout the entire story help to keep the story moving along and keep the reader interested. ( )

It was really cool because she had all the holidays in her room because she left a note under her pillow. And it was interesting because I did not know anyone had a sweet tooth. ( )

I love the Pinkalicious series and I really did enjoy "Silverlicious". These books are always full of color and such sweet books with great meanings. Everything I babysit I always end up reading one of Victoria Kann's books.

Summary:

The children's book, "Silverlicious", is about a young girl, Pinkalicious, who bites into her brothers cookie and looses her tooth. But she didn't loose just any tooth, she lost her "sweet tooth"! She writes a letter to the tooth fairy explaining that she lost her sweet tooth and that while her other one grows back in if she could leave her something sweet to eat. But when Pinkalicious wakes up she finds that the tooth fairy does come but Carols Cupid did! She tried his red candy hearts but did not like them at all. She writes a note back to Carols Cupid and saying that they were disgusting and would prefer something sweet. She does this multiple times but gets Edgar Easter Bunny with his Jelly beans, and Elf #351 with candy canes. At the end, Pinkalicious does get a letter from the Toothfairy but she explains to her that sweetness comes from the heart and that when you are sweet, the world and all the delicious things in it will be sweet too.n ( )
