Summary: K-ID television has a special guest: the Tooth Fairy. The Tooth Fairy talks about her day and shares the magic spells she uses in her job. When she visited one sloppy room, her wing got broken. She couldn't fly and teeth were piling up ... so she went to Santa for help.

Type of Reading: bedtime story, playtime reading, read aloud book

Recommended Age: read together: 3 to 8; read yourself: 7 to 9

Interest Level: 3 to 8

Age of Child: Read by a 10-year-old girl.

Young Reader Reaction: Even though our reader still believes in both Santa and the tooth fairy, she was very vocal about the fact that "this is for little kids."

Adult Reader Reaction: The story tries to do too much. There are too many words for young listeners and some are words they won't know (toppled, flutter). The idea of an interview format is cute, but not well executed. The illustrations are not very flattering to the story.

Pros: Kids who have questions about losing teeth at Christmas-time will enjoy this story of two beloved personalities.

Cons: If your child doesn't believe in BOTH Santa Claus and the tooth fairy this book could reveal information you are not ready to surface.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow. Parents will want to read before sharing with their kids.
