About the Author

Alan Durant is the author of more than forty children’s books. He says, "When I was doing some work with children one time, I met a girl named Lily who had a whole collection of beautifully illustrated letters from the Tooth Fairy. My imagination immediately got to work, thinking about a possible exchange between a girl and the Tooth Fairy and where it might lead. So DEAR TOOTH FAIRY was born." Alan Durant has three young children and lives in Surrey, England.

Vanessa Cabban has written and illustrated several books for children and is also the illustrator of DOWN IN THE WOODS AT SLEEPYTIME by Carole Lexa Schaefer. Of DEAR TOOTH FAIRY, she says, "Everything
was tiny and magical in this story. It was irresistible. I wanted to be Holly." Vanessa Cabban lives in Northumberland, England.

What a delightful book! The story is sweet (ver appropriate for ages 4-8). The story includes little notes, maps, pamphlets, etc. from the tooth fairy! My daughter reads it over and over. The illustrations are wonderful - a very magical, fairy-like theme!

This is a wonderful book - my four-yr old (now five) loved it and reads it all the time. The little letters & the "riddler" are just delightful! It is about a little girl named Holly who is reluctant to part with her first lost tooth. She corresponds back and forth with the Tooth Fairy several times until she finally decides to leave the tooth under her pillow & receives a special coin - included in one of the book's envelopes - in return.

We bought this book for our daughter and neice when they lost their first tooth and had so much fun reading it. Our daughter LOVED it and even wrote a letter to the tooth fairy after reading this book. It is a great interactive book and answers questions that we never even thought of. I highly recommend getting this book!!

My 5 year old son lost his 1st tooth. When we went to look for Tooth Fairy books he didn't like all the "fairies". He wouldn't even consider this book because it was pink. I started reading it and loved it. When I read it to him at home he LOVED it! He got so excited to open the envelopes in the book. He had me play the riddler that came with over and over again. His eyes lit up when he found the gold fairy coin. It is one of his most requested storytime books. Highly recommend!

Love it!! Such a great story. Only problem is that now our "tooth fairy" needs to also leave notes!!! And I had to make up a story as to why they don't really leave hold coins with a tooth fairy embossed on them....super cute story though, my daughter loved it.

With my daughter approaching the tooth-losing stage, I've been reading a lot of books on this theme lately. It's surprising how disappointing they've been. This book, however, is the exception. It contains fun letter-driven dialogue between a little girl who is already 6 and does not yet have a wobbly tooth (and is quite worried about this fact), and words of encouragement from the tooth fairy assuring her that her name does appear on her list, but that you can't hurry wobbly teeth. Fun and upbeat, this book is sure to make you and your child smile. Lovely, bright illustrations too. Kudos to the author and the illustrator!
