There are several books about the tooth fairy for small children.

Most of these books seek to reassure kids in some way with the prospect of getting rewards for losing their teeth. Most of them feature girly tooth fairies. Oh, some are more active than others, but (with the exception of the one in Andrew's Loose Tooth, another book I highly recommend) they're all clean and diligent, at least.

Ever occur to you that that's a bit boring? That maaaaaybe what the tooth fairy genre really needs is som

This book is the story of all the nasty fairies who would like you to put things under your pillow--as opposed to the nice tooth fairy. There are fairies of belly button lint, ear wax, dirty underwear, toe nail clippings, snot, farts, throw up and poop. Each one vies for your attention in hopes you will leave something nasty under your pillow.

The illustrations were colorful and imaginative, but over the top in grossness factor. As a fan of Captain Underpants, I have got to say this book took pot

This is a great, gross book that boys ages 3-6 will adore! Yes, it's bathroom humor, but so well constructed and illustrated.

This is a fairy book that boys will love.

"Be prepared for the crazy antics of the Fart Fairy, Snot Fairy, Dirty Underwear Fairy, and other less-than-enchanting fairies as they persuade their way into children's lives in an attempt to take over the Tooth Fairy's under-the-pillow enterprise."

Have you ever heard of the Snot Fairy? If you think all Fairy books are for girls this book will change your mind. It's not just the tooth fairy who likes you to leave something under your pillow. This book is as gross as it is funny!

Gross. Yuck. Did I mention gross? I'm pretty sure kids would love this. All the other fairies try to convince kids to put other things besides teeth under their pillow.

it's the gross fairies book. Every one knows about the tooth fairy. This book tells the story of the booger fairy, the belly-button fairy, the fart fairy, etc.

Guaranteed to delight little ones who will surely giggle over the Belly Button Lint Fairy or the Snot Fairy. You get the picture....and the illustrations are a riot, too!

Even though I gag while reading this book to my son, his giggles and excitement over the disgusting fairies make this one a keeper.

I give this three stars for the terrific illustrations, but this book is too gross for my taste...of course gross being the whole idea... some kids will probably love it.
