Product Description:
 
In a series of brief letters, Emma thanks the Tooth Fairy for the money left behind for her first tooth, then politely asks to borrow it back to show to Grandpa. The fairy obliges, but brings a hippopotamus's tooth by mistake, and its owner comes to the girl's room to claim it. After a succession of wrong attempts, during which a hedgehog, a skunk, an elephant, and an alligator visit Emma, the Tooth Fairy is finally successful -- and better prepared for the next time. Olson's text is simple and effective and the nicely understated tone gives free rein to the whimsical illustrations. The perspective of the jewel-toned oil paintings is slightly askew, giving them a sense of liveliness and motion. One double spread depicts the frazzled fairy searching for Emma's tooth in her cluttered office, and sharp-eyed readers will be able to spot it. This charming effort will work well for a smaller-sized storytime and is just perfect for reading one-on-one.

1.0 out of 5 stars.  Not what I expected., November 23, 2015
By Noreen
The book came printed with a large (2-3 inch) white bar across the top. It appears that it should've been cut down but it wasn't. Aside from the poor appearance, the book has a cute concept but is poorly executed. I don't care for the flow of the book or the illustration.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Nice Try, Tooth Fairy, November 24, 2009
By Teacher Sharon in Albuquerque
This is a delightful book I have used with kindergartners. They are just starting to lose their teeth so can identify with Emma. We all feel sorry for the confused tooth fairy who needs a better filing system!

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Twenty Thumbs up from Ms. Stevenson's Pre-School Class, January 12, 2004
By Ms. Stevenson
Every year I look forward to when the first kid in my class looses a tooth so I can share this book with my class! The little girl in the book has lost her first tooth and wants to show the tooth to her Grandfather when he comes to visit. The only problem is she's already given it to the Tooth Fairy. The girl writes the tooth fairy a letter asking to borrow the tooth to show her grandfather...the story that follows is hilarious! My students laugh out loud as the absent-minded tooth fairy tries to return the little girl's tooth, but keeps leaving all kinds teeth that could never belong to a child.
We give this book 20 thumbs up!

By A Customer
This is a charming book with wonderful illustrations! The frazzled tooth fairy and the whimsical tone of the child's letters are appealing to little ones.
