The Tooth Fairy Wars

It's the Tooth Fairy against Jake, a boy who'd rather keep his tooth than get the cash, thank you very much!

Nathan's lost his first tooth! And he's thinking he'll hold on to it, so thanks-but-no-thanks, Tooth Fairy. This is one tooth that is staying with its owner.

Except the Tooth Fairy has other ideas. And we're not talking about some run-of-the-mill garden fairy here. No, this is the Tooth Fairy. She's on a tooth procurement mission—and she's not about to let some little boy get the best of her.

But she may have met her match in Nathan...

    April 15, 2014
    A lad's determination to keep his baby teeth sets him against not only the tooth fairy, but the whole Fay bureaucracy behind her. Far more interested in the teeth than the money, Nathan ingeniously hides each fallen chopper--to no avail, as his assigned tooth fairy is just as determined to collect them, and she comes armed with a high-tech Super Tooth Sensomatic to do the job. Clad in formal office togs and topped with a 'do that wouldn't dare show even a hair out of place in Parker's comically detailed digital paintings, the tiny tooth fairy positively oozes bureaucratic severity. But Nathan outlasts her and even a squad of thuggish enforcers euphemistically dubbed "Tooth Experts" from the 15th League of Enchanted Commerce to earn both a rare certificate of exemption and a dental rebate. " 'Thanks!' said Nathan. 'I'll keep them forever.' / And he did." The increasingly stern official missives from the tooth fairy are depicted in typescript on letterhead in the illustrations. While children are unlikely to have encountered communications of this ilk on their own behalfs, they will likely have seen their grown-ups tearing their hair out over similar ones--and their grown-ups will enjoy them thoroughly. Go, Nathan! Stick it to the Man...er, Fairy. (Picture book. 6-8)

    K-Gr 2-Most children are eager to exchange their lost teeth for money from the Tooth Fairy. Not Nathan, who wants to keep all his baby teeth "forever." Thus begins a series of skirmishes between a determined boy and an equally obstinate Tooth Fairy. The child does what he can to ensure that his teeth are not taken away one at a time by hiding them in the garage, a tarantula's cage, and the garden, for instance. He even writes a polite note asking the fairy to leave his most recently fallen tooth. Nevertheless, every morning after a baby tooth falls out, he ascertains that it is gone and a dollar has been left in its place. Though he finds a couple of somewhat threatening letters from "the 15th League of Enchanted Commerce," the child doesn't stop attempting to thwart this fairy on a mission. Digitally colored pencil drawings reveal the escalating battles and the ultimate victor in the war of wills. The humorous story of Nathan, his baby teeth, and a Tooth Fairy just trying to do her job will have children laughing as they attempt to guess who will triumph in the end.-Maryann H. Owen, Children's Literature Specialist, Mt. Pleasant, WI
