9780545244664: The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy

The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy lives in the Museum, where she polishes her giant tooth collection and remembers the good old days. But when a little girl with a loose tooth walks through with her class, the D.T.F. knows she wants it, wants it, WANTS it! The thing is, the world has changed quite a lot since the D.T.F. was out and about -- there are doorknobs, slobbering dogs, and school buses to worry about now. Not to mention a mysterious Tooth Fairy rival who might just sweep in and ruin everything!

Here is a story about loose teeth, heart's desires and -- in the end -- friendship, that is both laugh-out-loud funny and unexpectedly touching. This is the T-Rex of tooth fairy books. (Or maybe the most magical tooth fairy of dinosaur books?) Read it and teethe.

About the Author:

Martha Brockenbrough is the author of two books for adults and five books for young readers, including The Game of Love and Death, which earned four starred reviews and was a Kirkus Prize finalist, Devine Intervention, and The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy. She lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband and their two daughters. Visit her online at marthabrockenbrough.com.

Israel Sanchez lives in La Habra, California. His illustrations and comics have been featured in Nickelodeon Magazine and Flight Comics, and he has done character and background design for Titmouse Animation. THE DINOSAUR TOOTH FAIRY is his first picture book.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2-Once, there were dinosaurs everywhere, and the Dinosaur Tooth Fairy had plenty of wonderful teeth to fill her coffers. But now, alas, they are gone and she spends her time polishing her collection in "the museum of truly old things." She's miserable and "alone, alone, alone." What she really needs is a new tooth and, suddenly, a little girl appears with a very loose one that pops right out. What luck! The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy follows the child to her house where, in a humorous series of events, the tooth is found under her pillow. Just as the Dinosaur Tooth Fairy is about to snatch it, she's interrupted by the human tooth fairy. Uh, oh! Will all be lost? Will the Dinosaur Tooth Fairy go back to the museum empty-clawed? Or will a new friendship be forged over this tooth? Brockenbrough's text is energetic and amusing, and Sanchez follows her lead with brightly colored, lively, gouache cartoon illustrations. The artist extends the text by including tiny images of the human tooth fairy and a spread of her missing the school bus that carries off the little girl. This story isn't quite as successful as Alison McGhee's Mrs. Watson Wants Your Teeth (Harcourt, 2004), but there aren't many books about this important rite of passage, and this one packs in plenty of fun.-Sharon Grover, Hedberg Public Library, Janesville, WIα(c) Copyright 2013.
