When did you lose your first tooth? I think I was in first or second grade, and it happened on a camping trip (or was it at an outdoor swim meet? my memory is fuzzy). Like many children, after the shock and pain of losing a tooth had worn off I got super excited for a visit from the tooth fairy – I’d heard all about it from older friends. Erin Danielle Russell’s adorable How to Trick the Tooth Fairy combines the legend of the Tooth Fairy, pranks, and Jennifer Hansen Rolli’s charming art in one g ...more

Kaylee is a girl who loves to pull pranks - on everyone. Dropping water balloons on passing kids, scaring a sibling at night, or even marbles on the floor for Santa Clause, no one escapes the princess of pranks. So naturally, when she loses her first tooth, it seems to her that the Tooth Fairy is fair game for a prank. Little does Kaylee know that the Tooth Fairy has a few tricks up her own sleeves, too.

But wait, has the Tooth Fairy finally met her match when she comes to collect Kaylee's first

Two star pranksters go head-to-head, and the results demand gasps, giggles and fun.

Kaylee is a serious prankster. She pranks in the morning and at night. No one is safe from her. But when she decides to pull one over on the Tooth Fairy, something unexpected happens—the Tooth Fairy is a prankster herself. The two battle it out, leading to disaster and something more.

The cover and title already demand attention, not only thanks to the little girl's sinister smile, but glitter abounds on both sides

The illustrations and colors of this children's book are charming. I love the depth of the blues and pinks. I love the big-eyed and beautifully drawn Kaylee and Tooth Fairy. But my love and fascination for this book virtually end at that point.

I see this story as delivering a message that pranks can get out of hand resulting in disastrous situations. True. I see the characterization of Kaylee as a precocious little girl whose behavior is simply out-of-hand and who has not been taught that pranki

This book is adorable. The story captures the fun of losing a tooth, pranks, chaos and finally conclusion. This story is delight from the front dust jacket, to the beautiful illustrations to the original and fantastically create (mischievous) story....this book has it all! Kids will find it hilarious and parents will have lots to talk to their kids about. A fun and a bit sassy HOW TO TRICK THE TOOTH FAIRY is sure to be a hit.

This would have been a 5-star book for me - the illustrations are lovely and full of life, and it's very, very funny - but I HATE pranks. I hated them as a kid and I hate them as an adult. Not everyone likes pranks, and it's important for kids to know that.
Jillian Heise
Whimsical and adorable in idea...but it just didn't sit right with me. I think there is a difference between pranks that are for fun, and mean-spirited mischief. And hiding in a tree to drop water balloons on unsuspecting classmates walking down the sidewalk, dressing up like a monster to scare your little sister while she's sleeping, putting marbles in front of the fireplace to make Santa fall - they don't strike me as funny, and it's not what I would want my students to see as harmless pranks. ...more

Kaylee is the princess of pranks. Her favorite holiday is April Fool’s Day. She even has a pair of quiet shoes for extra sneakiness. Not a day goes by that she doesn’t have a trick up her sleeve and kids in her neighborhood are often the victims. But, Kaylee has some competition. The Tooth Fairy currently wears the crown of prank. She has wings, a trick bag and even a magical tooth grabber. When the Tooth Fairy visited Kaylee’s room in the night, instead of finding a tooth there was a creepy rub ...more

I am not a huge fan of pulling pranks. I think that it can be very unkind and mean. But the consequences of pulling pranks is seen in this story as Kaylee and the tooth fairy face off. Kaylee loves to prank and so when she loses a tooth she naturally turns the tooth fairy's visit into a prank and gives the tooth fairy a fake frog rather than her tooth. But she doesn't realize that the tooth fairy is a prankster herself and is more than willing to give back. As the pranks go back and forth though ...more

Back to school time means tooth fairy time. For young Kaylee it means prank time. She loves to prank people and when she loses a tooth she thinks she'll pull one over on the tooth fairy. However, fairies have magic, and both girls end up one upping each other in a "If you Give a Mouse a Cookie," kind of way. eventually their antics putter out and they become friends, leaving their pranks for other people. This is a cute, silly book that is full of high jinks. The illustrations take on a life of ...more

Kaylee tricks her too - only the tooth fairy tricks back. They get into a pranks battle that does not end well. They learn to work together to clean up the huge mess they've made and decide to join forces for pranking others.
I like the humor but am not a fan of pranking and really don't like some of the pranks Kaylee pulls including dog toothpaste

OMG this is the perfect little girl book full of glitter and adorableness.

How to Trick The Tooth Fairy by Erin Danielle Russell is about a little girl named Kaylee who is a total prankster but she may have met her match in the Tooth Fairy. They battle each other with frogs, water, sweets, bubblegum and more. These two feisty girls form a new friendship after out pranking the other and we get to watch it through the words and wonderful animations by Jennifer Hansen Rolli.

Pranks that only leave the prankster satisfied and that outright demonstrate how pranking requires taking advantage of others’ trust in you and how as a prankster you must betray that trust, are not stories I enjoy reading or sharing.

I hope no reader decides to try substituting the cream of a sandwich cookie with dog toothpaste, with the ever-increasing development of food allergies, it might have very serious consequences.
In a quick read, this might appear cute and funny. Am I the only one who didn't? I feel that this encourages pranks, which can backfire. Perhaps this can encourage conversation about humor at someone else's expense - when it's ok or not.
