When I was a kid, this was the book I referred to for my Tooth Fairy lore. I LOVED this story, but had forgotten the title. Luckily, I asked Reddit and they came through. Definitely buying this for my kiddos, who are about to start losing their teeth.
Cute story. Reading Level 4. About a boy who loses a tooth and then can't find his tooth. The tooth fairy comes but there's more than one tooth fairy. This fairy is trying to get to a fairy ball. They have a run in with the Queen Tooth Fairy and there's a whole story. In some ways it's a very short, but very different version of Alice in Wonderland. Normal boy goes to a magical world, the Queen wants something, not his head in this book, and the boy saves the day.
Well… this book has the words “idiot” and “stupid” which are both on my “Do not use” list. Especially since Queen Denteena is using the first one to refer to the boy who is trying to help the fledgling tooth fairy. I did however crack up when I saw the “molar energy” light fixture and “brushum et flossum” banner.
