In this magical companion to Bob Graham’s celebrated April Underhill, Tooth Fairy, two fairy sisters, April and Esme, are on a brand new adventure!
April and Esme are staying at Grandma and Grandad’s for a whole weekend! A visit to Grandma and Grandad's is always special for the two sisters. There’s the mixing of fairy cakes, pancakes with syrup for breakfast and a chocolate waiting on each of their pillows. And this weekend, when Mum calls with an urgent tooth fairy job, there's an exciting trip to the airport with Grandma to make sure one little girl has her tooth collected.
Children are sure to love this thrilling and tender new story, so full of hope, possibility and the magic of a secret fairy world, from master storyteller Bob Graham.

Bob Graham is a master of the everyday, the small things that add up to a life lived well…Here is a book that will bear many readings. Satisfying in the telling and listening; gentle humour i nthe illustrations and an overall sense that all is well in the world when you read such life-affirming stories
This [is a] charming story full of hope and love…Graham’s work always leaves readers with a warm glow: recognition of a familiar scene, reworked to reveal a different perspective. Children will look again at the images presented here, not only the loving family, but the background figures, those coming into the airport for a variety of reasons, but all finding a safe haven…Highly Recommended.
