When the time comes to put her first baby tooth under the pillow for the tooth fairy , Elise cheats. She peeks , and catches her very own mother in the act. When she confides to kindergarten friend Ben that her Mom is the tooth fairy, he is indignant. He knows that the tooth fairy is his father--because he peeked, too. Finally she asks her mother, and clever Mom explains that the fairy doesn't want to startle anyone by appearing suddenly in their bedrooms, so she (or he) appears looking exactly like somebody the child loves. It certainly makes good sense. All the same, Elise pictures a magical fairy in a starry crown--who becomes her own dear Mom in an old pink nightie, but is just as beautiful. A charming explanation for one of childhood's smaller mysteries, warmly and realistically illustrated with glowing watercolors. --Joan McGrath, Education Centre Library, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
