Dear Tooth Fairy,

Last week it was my birthday. I was six, but I don't have even one wobbly tooth yet. I'm worried.

Yours sincerely,


Claire is anxiously awaiting her first loose tooth, and she's getting impatient. She writes to the Tooth Fairy, and miraculously, the Tooth Fairy writes back -- providing Claire with some helpful advice!

In a delightful exchange of letters between a young girl and the Tooth Fairy, Pamela Duncan Edwards and Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick convey the excited anticipation every young child experiences while waiting for the monumental event of losing that first wobbly tooth.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Worried that she still hasn't had one loose tooth, six-year-old Claire writes numerous letters to the Tooth Fairy, who responds with the advice to be patient and to keep brushing. When the big event finally does happen, the Tooth Fairy leaves a note promising to use her newest acquisition for her "special fairy carriage." Claire's letters are balanced by colorful watercolor paintings showing the girl interacting with her family and friends. The Tooth Fairy's typewritten responses are decorated with dreamy images of the sprite in a variety of poses. The endpapers contain postage stamps from "Elfin-Glades" that feature amusing pictures (e.g., a toothbrush and toothpaste, an apple with a bite taken out of it, and the Tooth Fairy carrying a large bicuspid). This charming picture book may inspire young readers to write letters of their own.-Sandra Kitain, Abrams Hebrew Academy, Yardley, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
