Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The title is deceiving. This isn't a story about a sweet little garden nymph flitting about on gossamer wings. This fairy rides on a magical Harley, lives in a suburban setting and is determined to let kids enjoy believing in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. She prides herself on being a one-of-a-kind fairy and that she is, as she pops wheelies, careens around town with braids flying and snaps a leather whip that takes the place of a magic wand. The Stubbs family lives in the neighborhood with their dog named Easy Rider and a daughter named Victoria who loses her tooth. The fairy makes short work of the local kids who laugh at Victoria's belief in the tooth fairy and then she makes sure that the gruff and reluctant Mr. Stubbs parts with his silver dollar. There is a sly poke here at suburbia which younger kids will not get, but they will still enjoy this story of a very unusual fairy. 2001, Orca, $16.95. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: Carolyn Mott Ford
