Product Details

Praise

Young audiences will linger over the detailed illustrations that bring to life Graham’s gentle tale.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

Theres so much wonderful whimsy here, its hard to know what to praise first. As always, a major treat is Graham's detail-filled artwork, here punctuated by a fairy toilet made from an egg cup and ceiling decorations of hanging teeth. But Graham also slyly covers some interesting issues as well: the cocoon in which parents like to keep their kiddies, alternative families, and the pride and accomplishment children feel with a job well done. Fresh and lots of fun.
—Booklist (starred review)

So very charming, touching and heartwarming.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

This is sure to be a favorite with the wiggly-tooth set.
—Bulletin of the Center of Children's Books (starred review)

Whimsical illustrations and bright colors. Bob Graham uses his talents as an authorand illustrator to give us a peek into an almost believable, tiny world of tooth fairies where dad sports a ponytail, mom has a tattoo, and children carry cell phones
—Library Media Connection

Humorous writing and ink and watercolor paintings are first rate. The spunky heroines exude courage and spirit.
—Plain Dealer

Graham fills his pastel cartoonlike drawings with clever details such as a coffee cup for a bathtub and postage stamps for wall decorations. The story's marvelous magic glides over the few lapses in logic It's a loving tale of growing up
