Tooth Fairy in Training

By Michelle Robinson
Illustrated by Briony May Smith

Think that being a tooth fairy is all about sparkly fairy dust, shiny coins and collecting teeny-tiny teeth from cute, sleeping children? Well, think again.

Tate’s big sister May is taking her out on her very first tooth-collecting mission, and it’s going to be a little … well, dangerous. It will involve trekking through the deep, dark jungle, plunging into the murky ocean, and facing the ice of the Arctic. Because it’s not just sweet, slumbering little children that lose their pearly whites, oh no... All kinds of toothy predators lose their gnashers, too! Can Tate collect missing teeth from crocs, sharks and anacondas ... and all without waking up a single creature? A fast-paced, funny and action-packed adventure story, which introduces two tough brave new fairies (and many a ferocious animal!) to the picture book world.

  • Animals need their teeth collecting, too, in this fantastic new spin on the tooth fairy story! It’s "Tinkerbell" meets "James Bond".
  • An action-paced, trepidatious adventure told from the perspective of a strong, daring little girl.
  • Michelle Robinson has had huge success with There’s a Lion in My Cornflakes, A Beginner's Guide to Bear Spotting and How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth.
