What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

When it’s time for Tate to start her tooth-fairy training, she learns that there’s much more to the job than just leaving coins for sleeping children.

Tate’s tooth-fairy training starts today, and her big sister, May, is taking her out on her very first tooth-collecting mission. After practicing at home, Tate is ready to test her skills, and May leads her to their first stop: a herd of hippos in a lake! After all, human children aren’t the only young creatures that lose their teeth. In fact, being a tooth fairy is a dangerous job, and Tate must visit all kinds of toothy predators before the night is up. Will she be able to collect the teeth from narwhals, anacondas, and more — all without waking a single creature? Author Michelle Robinson and illustrator Briony May Smith introduce two brave fairy sisters with a whimsical, rhyming read-aloud.

Quotes from This Book

  • This baby hippo needs a visit. Not every child's a human, is it? Of all the teeth! Of all the kids! The sharks! The crocs! The giant squids! I had to get caught by *Melissa* . . . a doll-collecting fairy kisser.

What Questions Should I Ask My Child

  • Tate and May visit a lot of different “kids” who have lost their teeth. Which would be your favorite animal to collect teeth from? Which do you think would be the scariest?

  • Tate learns how to be a good tooth fairy from her older sister. What have your siblings, parents or friends taught you how to do?
