Soon after Grandpa’s teeth disappear from a glass of water near his bed, Inspector Rate has the whole town under investigation.
Two young tooth fairies make their first lost-tooth collection. April Underhill, seven-year-old tooth fairy, gets a call on her cell phone. April and her little sister, Esme, must convince Mom and Dad to let them take on the task all by themselves. But soon, two tiny fairies fly off into the night, over a highway of thundering eighteen-wheelers, eager to prove how grown up they can be. As always, the charm is in the visual details: the pony-tailed, winged dad in baggy jeans; the snug fairy house with teeth dangling from the rafters like wind chimes. Once again, Bob Graham has crafted a tale of heartwarming adventure, magical yet very real.
