ALA Booklist
Kaylee loves to pull pranks. No one is safe from her mischievous ways t her family, not her friends, not even Santa Claus. One night, however, she meets an unlikely match e Tooth Fairy. When the Tooth Fairy swoops in to retrieve the tooth from Kaylee's pillow, she comes away with a toy frog. Quickly, she enacts a retaliatory prank: real frogs raining down everywhere. "Game on!" shouts Kaylee, and so begins a night full of pranks, from hot sauce laced pie to ice cream attack rays. After the fairy's wand breaks, unleashing destruction, both pranksters realize that maybe it's time to become friends and clean up their mess. Rolli's highly active and appropriately zany oil illustrations bring the tit-for-tat to rollicking life, even when the rules of what the fairy can and can't do are a little opaque. That's a quibble; their prank war is definitely funny enough to have some little listeners in tears.
Kirkus Reviews
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)
Publishers Weekly
Russell, coauthor (with her mother, Rachel Renée Russell) of the Dork Diaries series, introduces Kaylee, a prankster who is -always looking for her next unsuspecting victim.- (Readers may find some of her tricks mean-spirited, as when she feeds friends cookies with -dog toothpaste- in place of frosting.) The pranking field is leveled when Kaylee leaves the Tooth Fairy a toy frog instead of her tooth-and the fairy retaliates by conjuring a bevy of real frogs. After Kaylee serves the fairy a piece of pie topped with hot sauce, things get messier: ice cream flies through the air, and cats and dogs rain from the ceiling. A familiar-sounding narrative motif (-Now, if you prank the Tooth Fairy with prankster pie, she-ll top it with...-) strikes a derivative chord, but Rolli (Claudia & Moth) humorously amplifies the escalating chaos in digitally enhanced, candy-hued watercolors. On one amusing spread, the tricksters gaze quizzically at each other, the fairy with candy sprinkles in her pink locks and Kaylee with a banana peel crowning her unruly tresses. Ages 4-8. (May)
