Tilly TheTrickster proves that Molly Shannon is as brilliant an author as she is a comic actress. In the fabulous tradition of PIPPY LONGSTOCKING, Tilly is a hilarious strong female character who exemplifies a smart, creative and confident girl -- which any parent of young kids should embrace. This book is is destined to become an INSTANT classic for young children , and undoubtedly a successful feature film as well. There is a new literary force of nature in the childrens book world -- and her name is MOLLY SHANNON!

We received this book as a gift. I found it deplorable. Tilly plays mean spirited and unfunny "tricks" on her family, the kids at the bus stop, and one of her teachers. I would hate for my kids to think being mean is somehow funny, which is the message of this book. Tilly delights in being sent home from school for her pranks, another bad message. And, she gives her little brother a toothpaste filled cookie. Has the author never read the side of a toothpaste tube, which says, "if accidentally ingested, contact a Poison Control Center immediately?"

(Spoiler alert!) So does Tilly learn to mend her prank filled ways at the end of the book? Of course not. Her parents and brother play a silly, mean trick on her and they all laugh and she resolves to keep the fun going tomorrow.

Save your money and do not buy this book.

Got this for my daughters. Since I have been a long time fan of Molly Shannon I could not pass up this book. It is big and colorful with a cute story about a little girl pulling pranks on people. Nice message at the end. Love it!

this book is perfect for my little trickster. It's a cute story, cute illustrations and not too long. It hold the attention of my 4 year old. She laughs every time! Anything that makes her giggle is a hit with me!

I love Molly Shannon, but I sadly don't love this book. The tricking is never really resolved, so kids end the book thinking tricking is funny as long as it's not really bad. Not an easy lesson for a three-year-old. My three-year-old thinks it's funny to trick and lie because he is tilly the trickster

I always have loved Molly Shannon so I was very interested in reading this book. I read it to my kids, and as soon as I was finished they asked me to read it again right away! This book is entertaining and touching, knowing that there probably was a lot of Tilly in Molly when she was a child. We could all use a little Tilly in us.

I read this to my two 5 year old granddaughters. They enjoyed it and had a good time. I recommend this to parents and grandparents. Lynne

I absolutely LOVE Molly Shannon, but I am extremely disappointed in her book. The reason I purchased this book is (a. LOVE Molly and b. my grandfather used to call me Tilly as a child) The story itself is OK, the illustrations are nice, the paper quality is excellent, but overall I feel the price was too much for this book.
