A delightfully entertaining story from the hugely popular write, comedian and broadcaster, Sandi Toksvig about a little girl and a trainee tooth fairy who just might take more than just your tooth when she pays a visit. Full of humour, it's perfect bedtime reading anytime but certainly when that first tooth is getting wobbly. You can't fail to laugh out loud when reading this book.


The Troublesome Tooth Fairy by Sandi Toksvig

When Jessica loses her first tooth, Granny tells her to watch out for a trainee tooth fairy. That little creature might look the part in her purple and silver outfit but she's not too sure of her job. As Granny knows, the tooth fairy has been known to whisk away more that just the lost tooth.


A charming and intriguing tale for all children of tooth-losing age, just the right length and style for early readers, or perfect as a bedtime story Kirkus

's all about Gran's first lost tooth, and how at four in the morning she wakes to see a tiny figure outside her window. The figure tries to fly in but bumps her head on the glass. It's a trainee tooth fairy, and she just can't help but get everything wrong, landing her and Gran in pretty deep trouble. After some adventures in Real Tooth Land, Gran solved the problem for both of them, received a shiny new penny for her tooth, and is here to tell the tale. A neat little ending reinforces Gran's story that night when Jessica waits for her own tooth fairy. (Kirkus UK)'
