Product Description:
High upon a secluded hilltop overlooking the roaring waves of the ocean below lives The Dentist. He is married to the very beautiful Hygienist, and they have a brilliant son named Crown. The Dentist has the life he has always envisioned, but it wasn't always so, and it is about to be challenged again...

The Dentist and The Toothfairy is a haunting story about a dentist's struggle between the man he once was and the man he wants to be, a cloaked figure that forces him to face his turbulent past, and his duel with love. A fantasy graphic novel set in a world ruled by militia men, tilled by country-dwellers, protected by fairies, and and lured by temptresses, this story twists and turns, until it culminates into a climactic life or death decision.

This collaborative effort of literature and paintings turned into illustrations is the first for author Dorota Skrzypek and famed Montreal artist Jerome Prieur. The illustrations are a modern industrial interpretation of gothic art and the story flows like a fairytale yet tackles adult themes of love, loss, revenge, and redemption. Having received honorable mention for outstanding book of the year best book arts craftsmanship at the 2006 Independent Publisher Book Awards, The Dentist and The Toothfairy is a timeless masterpiece; a romance graphic novel that is an impressive coffee-table book.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  The Dentist and the Toothfairy is a treasure. The ..., December 26, 2014
By Jenna-Leigh Johnson
The Dentist and the Toothfairy is a treasure. The story is hypnotic and timeless, the artwork intricate and breathtaking. Dorota Skrzypek masterfully combines mythic themes and seductive characters in an updated version of the fairy tale genre. This book is the ultimate in escape literature… read it by candlelight!

5.0 out of 5 stars.  A GREAT discovery! A true revelation!, December 04, 2006
By AmazonBeats (San Diego)
Much of this story remains burned into my mind even months after I first read it. So, guess what? I read it again! The characters feel like people I've known or could know. The setting seems like someplace dangerous, yet romantic (in a fantastic not syrupy sense of the word). Author Dorota Skrzypek's imaginative storytelling goes deep, far and wide in only 128 pages. I've read novels five times as long, that don't accomplish nearly as much. And certainly, the beautiful accompanying artwork by Jerome Prieur possesses great depth and beauty. It's like the visual engine pushes the narrative steaming forward. If Skrzypek's and Prieur's purpose was to create an epic, adult fairytale, then mission accomplished. Even better, they've walked that fine line between fantasy and realism without being exhaustingly esoteric and coy. Now, one question: Who's going to be smart enough to turn The Dentist and The Toothfairy into a movie?

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Great Fairy Tale!, September 01, 2006
By JBArtistic.com (Pittsburgh, PA)
I really enjoyed this book. The artwork was AMAZING, but you would expect that since it was a painting by the artist that inspired the book. The story was a sweet yet dark fairy tale that I would have enjoyed as a child as much as I enjoyed it now as an adult. I believe anyone can relate to the theme of changing as we grow older and how decisions made when we were younger affect our adult lives, even if on a much less dramatic scale. Also I'm a sucker for a love story! I'm impatiently awaiting the next book!
