In the wordless storyboard format and soft pastel drawings that have become his trademark, Peter Collington offers an enchanting solution to the age-old mystery of what the tooth fairy does with all those teeth! He follows an industrious tooth fairy on an arduous night’s work of creating a perfect silver coin and exchanging it for a precious baby tooth. Back in her cozy parlor, she lovingly transforms her prize into a new ivory key for her broken piano, then sits down to play a tune. The trade edition includes a make-it-yourself tooth box for commemorating a milestone of every childhood–losing the first baby tooth.
