Summary: Tallulah is like no tooth fairy you’ve ever seen. She’s the CEO of her own company, Teeth Titans Incorporated, as well as the founder of the National Association for the Appreciation and Care of Primary Teeth (NAACP-T). But Tallulah’s not all about work. She believes in finding a balance between the three P’s: passion, purpose, and what pays. She does yoga, chats with her therapist, and visits museums. She recruits and trains other tooth fairies, and when night falls, off they go to collect teeth from kids around the world. One night, Tallulah encounters something unusual: a boy who’s lost his tooth and left her a note instead. After a quick consultation with her Board of Directors, she leaves a note in return, gifting him with a tooth compartment lanyard from her company to help him keep track of his teeth in the future. The final page shows the boy with a gap-toothed grin and Tallulah watching him from the bushes outside his house. 40 pages; ages 4-8.
Pros: Kids will love unconventional fairy Tallulah, and may be inspired to come up with some of their own ideas about the tooth fairy. Tallulah is smart, savvy, and nobody’s fool…a great role model for girls and boys.
Cons: Some of the humor will be appreciated by adults, but may go over the kids’ heads.
