Review

Can you fool the Tooth Fairy? Jessica is jealous when her brother loses a tooth and she tries a con job with a piece of corn. Her trick is uncovered at the Tooth Fairy's palace and she suffers the wrath of the robot tooth cleaners, who want to throw her in jail. Jessica's dream has turned into a nightmare, but like all fairy stories, it does have a happy ending. This has its scary moments, although it is at least comforting to know in this world of uncertainty, that the Tooth Fairy really does exist and furthermore, she's not to be fooled. Cork Evening Echo, Autumn 2004

About the Author

Audrey Wood is an extremely well-known author for children. This is from her first series of published books. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

AUDREY WOOD is the much-loved author of more than thirty books for children, including the bestselling The Napping House, Piggies, Heckedy Peg, and most recently, Piggy Pie Po, which she collaborated on with her husband, Don Wood.
She lives in Hawaii.

My first memories are of Sarasota, Florida in the winter quarters of the Ringling Brothers' Circus. I was one year old and remember it vividly. My father, an art student, was making extra income by repainting circus murals.

The people in the circus were my friends. I was bounced on the knee of the tallest man in the world and rocked in the arms of the fat lady who could not stand up. My first baby-sitters were a family of little people who lived in a trailer next to ours. They tAudrey2old me stories about the animals they worked with: Chi Chi the Chimpanzee, an elephant named Elder, and Gargantua the Gorilla.

My mother says I was a fast learner, always ahead of my age. My father taught me to swim before I could walk. I walked at seven months and climbed over a seven foot chain link fence when I was one year old. Everyone in the circus thought I was going to be a trapeze artist.

When I was two, I traveled with my parents to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where they studied art. Spanish became my second language. Because my mother read to me every day, I fell in love with books and was reading by age three.

My parents had two more girls, which made me the oldest sister. All of us were trained in the arts: music, dance, painting, and drama. We had a miniature stage in our basement, complete with light-bulb floodlights and a dusty red velvet curtain. Admission for the plays we produced was a bargain--twenty-five cents.

When I was in the first grade, I wanted to grow up to be an artist like my father. Then, in the fourth grade, I decided I'd like to be a children's book author. As an adult who writes and illustrates children's books, I have realized both my childhood ambitions.

I got in trouble in school once for crossing out my favorite author's name and putting in mine--Audrey Brewer instead of Dr. Seuss!

My great-grandfather, grandfather, and father were all professional artists. Since I am also a professional artist, there are four consecutive generations of artists in our family. However, I am the only female artist.

On our honeymoon, I read my new husband Don Wood the classic children's book entitled At the Back of the North Wind. Seven years later, we teamed up to create our first picture book together.

When our son Bruce Robert was two years old, I began to read picture books to him. He helped to remind me of my childhood ambitions. That's when I began to write children's books seriously.

I have three children and this book has been a part of our family for many years. It became part of our family tradition to read The Tooth Fairy by Audrey Wood each time one of the children lost a tooth-they learned the words by heart! It's a cute story and has great pictures which really capture the children's imagination. Now that my children are all grown, I have saved this book to pass on to their children!

When I was younger, this book was in my dentist's office. Every time we would go to the dentist, I would either read it, or my mom would read it for me. It's a very cute book, and it teaches kids to take care of their teeth, as well as not to lie. I remember I took very good care of my teeth, because when they fell out, I would want it to go to the "Hall of Perfect Teeth." I love this book!

My daughter loves this book and we read it to her every night. It's a cute little tale about exactly what the tooth Fairy does with all those teeth she collects. It has a wonderful moral, too! Very cute!

I have owned this book for many years. I bought the at book fair at my own children's school years ago. It is now worn and falling apart from use. I am a substitute teacher now and whenever possible take the opportunity to read this book to children anywhere from kindergarten through third grade. Every time I read this book the children beg me to read it again. Then they line up for "turns" to read it for themselves. I can not reccomend this book highly enough. It is "the bomb" when it comes to reading terrific literature. My experience with this book has boosted my interest in all books authored by Audrey Wood.

Since my mother-in-law doesn't speak english, I wanted books her to read to my son in Greek. This is a cute book, although the material is a little too old for my 4-month old (I can't be too picky as there are so few choices in the US that don't cost a ton!). Some of the pictures are dark blue and it could be hard to read the black print, but I think this will be a hit!

I still have this book from when my oldest was little (she's now 23). Three more children later and the youngest, now five, loves it just as much as the others have. Its a great adventure for the imagination and the wonderful illustrations really help take the children into the fun. One big plus is the way it motivates kids into taking care of their teeth. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

I bought this book when my girls (twins) were at the age of losing their teeth and have been looking for it awhile as it got lost during a move. One of my girls loved it but the other one was frightened about being carried away by the toothfairy and wouldn't put her tooth under her pillow. We talked her into leaving the tooth on the tv that night. The next morning, her surprise was under her pillow and the tooth was gone. After that, she loved the book as well. Both girls (young women now) will be happy I have found the book and will read it to their children.

I first read this book to my children 30 years ago. It's still just as wonderful in encouraging children to have baby teeth worthy of the "hall of perfect teeth". I was disappointed that my delivery instructions were not followed. The book came to my address and I received no response when I emailed the mix up. I had to ship the books to my grandsons.
