KIRKUS REVIEW

A trickster girl goes head-to-head with the Tooth Fairy in this wild tale by a co-author of the Dork Diaries.

Kaylee, a brown girl with big, curly hair, is a “prank princess in training,” always finding opportunities to prank people with anything from masks and water balloons to Oreos filled with dog toothpaste. But the “ruling prank princess” is the Tooth Fairy, a white, pink-haired fairy with a mischievous grin and scheming green eyes. When the Tooth Fairy reaches under Kaylee’s pillow for a tooth, what she gets is a fake frog. But she responds with real frogs! What ensues is a battle of pranks that gets very messy, with desserts thrown all over the kitchen, water sprayed everywhere, and loads of trouble. After their wild romp gets out of hand, they clean up together, share fairy-dust cookies, and become prank-pulling princess friends. The illustrations are endearing and expressive, done in a neutral palette with just enough pink and glitter to attract princess lovers to this decidedly unladylike tale.

A fun read for every young practical jokester who fantasizes about meeting their match. (Picture book. 4-9)
