Dear Tooth Fairy,
Last week it was my birthday. I was six, but I don't have even one wobbly tooth yet. I'm worried.
Claire is anxiously awaiting her first loose tooth, and she's getting impatient. She writes to the Tooth Fairy, and miraculously, the Tooth Fairy writes back providing Claire with some helpful advice!
In a delightful exchange of letters between a young girl and the Tooth Fairy, Pamela Duncan Edwards and Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick convey the excited anticipation every young child experiences while waiting for the monumental event of losing that first wobbly tooth.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
What a cute story! There are many lessons to be learned underneath the cute words and the enchanting illustrations. Besides addressing the anxiety of a six-year-old for not having any wobbly tooth, this tale talks to friendship (Claire and Amanda's), respect the words of elders and celebrate other's fortune (Claire listens to her Grandma, be glad for Jimmy Clark's wobbly teeth, and subsequently invites him to a party). Lastly, I like how the clever story illuminates a fairy tale for children of any racial makeup to enjoy, even Tooth Fairy is not known universally.
