From the back cover:
Bella had it all. The hair, the dress, and the smile. One day, her most important asset was
missing…her tooth! Will Bella find the perfect tooth in time for the contest? Will Zelda, the
meanest of the fairies, destroy Bella’s chances of winning the crown? Take a journey onto Cloud
Nine as Bella searches for a new tooth only to discover the tooth…I mean truth…behind her true
The Toothless Tooth Fairy is cleverly written by Shanelle Hicks and charmingly illustrated by Anca
Delia Budeanu. The cover will draw children to it and they will want to sit for hours being read to
over and over again. The colorful illustrations cover three-fouths of the page.
The Toothless Tooth Fairy is a powerful story of kindness, forgiveness, and friendship. I thought
it was cute that the tooth fairy checked on her computer to see who was scheduled to lose a tooth.
There’s even a catchy phrase that children will have fun mimicking. I can easily see this becoming
a child’s favorite and recommend it highly.
This book was given to me by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
