Say the word “fairies” and it conjures up images of little winged beings made of gossamer and light, exquisitely dressed in shimmering gowns or twirly, little bejeweled skating costumes. Well, you haven’t met The Flim-Flam Fairies. Be prepared for the crazy antics of the Fart Fairy, Snot Fairy, Dirty Underwear Fairy, as well as a few other less-than-enchanting fairies as they persuade their way into and out of children’s lives in attempts to take over the Tooth Fairy’s under-the-pillow enterprise. A silly story that will have the kids howling into their pillows with laughter!

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Everybody's heard of the Tooth Fairy, right? Put your tooth under your pillow, and she will leave a small gift in exchange. "How sickening!" complains the Belly Button Lint Fairy, a big-nosed conical fellow with a hairy gut, who begins to describe his own deal, when he is interrupted by the Earwax Fairy. The Dirty Underwear Fairy, the Clipped Toenail Fairy, the Snot Fairy and so on follow, in a parade of grossness clearly aimed at the pre-Captain Underpants market. With an illustration-and-design style that owes so much to Lane Smith-Molly Leach collaborations that more than one kid will think it's a new offering from that team, Slack's digital collages revel in the revolting possibilities provided by the text. It's a one-joke pony, though, and nothing much happens: The Tooth Fairy attempts to expose the others as Flim-Flam Fairies, but the emergence of the Poop Fairy at the end casts her protestations into doubt. Even if kids last through it once, they're not likely to clamor for repeated readings-for which their grown-ups will be eternally grateful. (Picture book. 5-8)
