The Tooth Fairy’s Tummy Ache
While chomping on a delicious apple, she hears at last the crack associated with losing a tooth. It is indeed her first tooth to lose, an exciting adventure for most, but when she suddenly realizes it quickly escaped into her stomach instead of waiting to be gently extricated from her mouth, her alarm grows. What will she tell the Tooth Fairy? She must find something similar in size and color to serve as its replacement. When the Tooth Fairy discovers a popcorn kernel under her pillow, she deems it unlike most of her findings and hesitantly trades it for a silver dollar. Upon her return to Fairy Land, it begins to pop and multiply. She simply can’t resist its temptation and soon finds herself in bed with a terrible tummy ache. In her angst, the fairy decides she must return to the little girl’s house to teach her a lesson.
The Tooth Fairy’s Tummy Ache was inspired by the author’s own childhood experience of misplacing her first tooth. It’s a charming tale laced with humor and rhyme and will likely appeal most to children ages four to eight. The text is short and concise, which will enthrall the youngest ones with brief attention spans. Additionally, it’s filled with colorful, alluring pictures that illuminate the pages with bright shades of pink, blue, and purple, to name a few. Adding to its overall quality is an underlying message on the importance of honesty and integrity even in the seemingly innocent moments of youth.
