Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

When the time comes to put her first baby tooth under the pillow for the tooth fairy , Elise cheats. She peeks , and catches her very own mother in the act. When she confides to kindergarten friend Ben that her Mom is the tooth fairy, he is indignant. He knows that the tooth fairy is his father--because he peeked, too. Finally she asks her mother, and clever Mom explains that the fairy doesn't want to startle anyone by appearing suddenly in their bedrooms, so she (or he) appears looking exactly like somebody the child loves. It certainly makes good sense. All the same, Elise pictures a magical fairy in a starry crown--who becomes her own dear Mom in an old pink nightie, but is just as beautiful. A charming explanation for one of childhood's smaller mysteries, warmly and realistically illustrated with glowing watercolors. --Joan McGrath, Education Centre Library, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

This is an excellent book for parents to read to their 5-7 year olds. It explains in an imaginative way how the tooth fairy can look just like a parent. I'm a first grade teacher and it is the book I pull off the shelf when the first child in my class loses a tooth. The story keeps the children on the edge of their seats and does not disappoint in the end!

This book provides a clever answer to the tooth fairy question. I am a kindergarten teacher and this book is a superb read aloud! It invites the reader to use expressive voices, making the book a fun experience for the listeners. I bought the book because my daughter's name is Elise, but was delighted with its content! This is an absolute must-have!

This book is a great book for children who have doubts about the existence of the "tooth fairy" or believe their parents are the "tooth fairy".

It's about the toothfairy,and a little girl who sees the toothfairy and thinks it's her mom.But she has a fight with her friend about the toothfairy.The fight was about the girl's friend lost a tooth and thought it was his dad. Her mom tells her about the fairy.So the girl tells her friends about the fairy.Then she tricks the toothfairy.I liked it because when I was little my mom would read it to me when I had a lose tooth.I loved reading it.It's the best book I've ever read,because it's kind of easy for staters.I recmmend this book to all the libaries in the world.

I bought this book years ago and loved it. Was telling a co-worker about it and did a search. Was able to find it and ordered one for her plus mu own three kids.

I love the illustrations in this book and it is so real the way the kids converse about loose teeth and who they saw being the tooth fairy. The way the author decided to wrap up the story has always brought me to tears. What an awesome book.

One of my favorite books to read with first grade when everybody has gaps in their smile. Love that it explains that the fairy changes to look like a family member so that the child won't be frightened.

What a wonderful story for those kids who are starting to doubt the magic of the toothfairy or who catch their parent in the act. It allows for the child in each of us and the meaning is very thoughtful. I have given this book to each of my grandchildren and they have all loved it.

I read this with my seven year old daughter after she lost her second tooth. We LOL so hard! I was laughing because we had just placed her tooth under her pillow. The story then lead me to believe that it was revealing the fairy's true identity: the mother. It must have been shocked laughter coming from me - to think someone would write such a book and give it away! I continued reading to find a clever explanation of the who tooth fairy is. I was delighted by the story. Beautiful illustrations throughout.
