Debut picture-book pair Brockenbrough and Sanchez are millions of years ahead of their time.


It's the comeback of the millennium for a Tooth Fairy whose last collection was in the Mesozoic era!

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.
