Two young tooth fairies make their first lost-tooth collection in Bob Graham's warm, whimsical tale.
A Junior Library Guild Selection. April Underhill, seven-year-old tooth fairy, gets a call on her cell phone. This is it! Her first tooth collection. April and her little sister, Esme, must convince Mom and Dad to let them take on the task all by themselves. But soon, two tiny fairies fly off into the night, over a highway of thundering eighteen-wheelers, eager to prove how grown up they can be. As always, the charm is in the visual details: the pony-tailed, winged dad in baggy jeans; the snug fairy house with teeth dangling from the rafters like wind chimes. Once again, Bob Graham has crafted a tale of heartwarming adventure, magical yet very real.
April and her little sister Esme come from a family of tiny tooth fairies. When April is asked to pick up a tooth, she's delighted. But her parents need persuading because she's so young. Finally allowed to go, the girls make their way to the home in question, and find adventure and excitement. Filled with appealing little modern details, such fairies using blow dryers and cellphones, wearing jeans, and having pets, there's much to enjoy here.
