David Bouchard's Harley-driving tooth fairy is fun, and truly one-of-a-kind (she wears a leather jacket and black leather pants, no frilly pink dress for her).

The primary attraction here is the art, with the unconventional imagery of a trench coat-garbed granny fairy popping wheelies on her mini magic-powered motorbike.

Adults often forget the important things, she laments... but a little dose of fairy magic can remind them.
