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.


  1. Just love the cover, too - it makes me smile!

  2. When I was at B&N they said this was the hottest series for little girls!. The drawings are so sweet.

  3. I loved the Pinkalicious book, but haven't read any of the others. I think they would make great reads for the little girl that I sometimes take care of and will be looking for this one. Thanks for the great review!

  4. Thank you for sharing that adorable story with us! I have to go to the library to return some books that I used for tutoring a kindergartner and a 1st grader and I will jot this title down and check it out!
    I love how children take things so literally and have such an imagination!

  5. I bought the first three for my niece (age 7) and she loves them. I just put this one on order for her. Thanks for pointing out the new addition to a fun series.

  6. I got Pinkalicious and Purplishious for my niece last year and she loves them! I think she may be getting this one from me for her birthday next week!

  7. Isn't Pinkalicious just fabulous?!~ This is the first I'm hearing about Silverlicious; I can't wait to pick it up!

  8. I've got to get this one for my niece. Her B Day is coming up ... yes she's only going to be 1 year old but it's going to loved anyway.
