Letís get one thing straight, OK?
NEVER wear pink flouncing skirts or twinkling glass slippers!

The Tooth Fairy does a lot more work than we give her credit for! Battling almost impossible obstacles, she does this every night, every time a child loses a tooth. Her witty attitude and tough exterior helps her get around as fast and as efficiently as possible, leaving gleaming silver coins under pillows in her wake.

This picture book took a toll on me. It made me smile and remember the days when I would leave my lost teeth under my pillow, to find money there the next day. The exhilaration of having a fairy in my room at night never really left me, and Sheri Bell-Rehwoldt combined with David Slonimís forces brought this childhood fantasy to life. The illustrations are priceless, only further accentuating the fairyís antics of her nightly routines. The way she talks to the reader is entertaining and most certainly will have the listeners in rapt attentiveness.

The fonts and the colours of the writing went well with the illustrations and emboldened the words and expressions, making them more interesting to read. The story is creative and the pictures were a perfect description of what she was saying. I would recommend this book for readers six years old and up. The Tooth Fairyís existence is a classical story, and good for even teenagers and adults alike.

I give You Think Itís Easy Being The Tooth Fairy? four magical stars.
