An inquisitive little girl gives the Tooth Fairy a run for her money-and exchanges several removable messages-in this sweet, humorous story.

Dear Tooth Fairy,
Thank you for coming last night. . . . I have a few
questions. Why do you want my tooth?

Holly’s tooth has fallen out, but she’s not sure she wants to give it to
the Tooth Fairy just yet. She has a few questions to ask first, about how fairies operate and where her tooth will end up. Luckily, the obliging Tooth Fairy responds- five times! Readers will be tickled to reach inside real envelopes and find Holly’s missives from the Tooth Fairy, including removable letters, a poster, a riddle-teller, and—finally—a shiny fairy coin.

Unwilling to relinquish the tooth she has just shed, Holly stalls the Tooth Fairy by engaging the sprite in an extended correspondence, the focal point of Durant's (Big Bad Bunny ) and Cabban's (Down in the Woods at Sleepytime ) unjacketed novelty book.
