What little girl does not like the colors pink, or purple? In Silverlicious, a little girl named Pickalicious, loses her tooth -- not just any tooth, but her sweet tooth, and Pinkalicious loves sweets. She decides to leave the tooth fairy a note, along with her tooth, asking her to bring her something sweet to eat until her new sweet tooth grows in. For several nights in a row, she gets a visit while she is asleep, not from the tooth fairy Tootheetina, but from Carlos Cupid, Edgar Easter Bunny and even Elf #351. Each leave her (3) pieces of candy, none of which tastes sweet to her, and a note explaining that the tooth fairy was called away, to places far away like India to help an elephant with a "tusk ache".
In the end, Pinkalicious learns where sweetness really comes from, deep inside oneself, and yes, she discovers that she can once again can taste sweets, and that some things are just simply...... "Silverlicious"!
This story is so very cute, the illustrations are so colorful and detailed, and without a doubt, this book will delight the sweet little girl in your life. This is my first children's book by Victoria Kann, but it will not be my last. I'll be off to checkout this author's earlier books in this series: Pickalicious, Purplicious and Goldilcious as well. I can just imagine how adorable the illustrations and stories will be. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
