Format: Paperback
When Dave loses his loose tooth while sneezing, he decides to substitute his grandfather's false teeth under his pillow so he can collect enough money from the Tooth Fairy to buy a new kite. Stories about lost teeth aren't unusual in children's books, but "Dave and the Tooth Fairy" provides a refreshing look at a traditional subject. The Tooth Fairy, Afiya, is a young woman who keeps records on a computer. Dave's friend Zizwe happens to be in a wheelchair. Paul Hunt's astonishing photo-realistic artwork glows with strategically placed color. Dave is looking for his tooth, Afiya is looking for a day job where she can meet children while they're awake. Grandad manages to resolve both problems by the simple act of getting out of bed! A gently humorous and completely charming book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to FInd 10 Feb. 2014

This book was given to my son as a gift and my friend's son read this book while on a visit with us and he fell in love with the book. So I made the purchase for him as a Christmas gift and his Mom said he was so excited!
5.0 out of 5 stars We need to stop making racist assumptions! 26 Jan. 2013
By T. Torchia - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful and unique book. I met the author who is also the owner of Tamarind Books. I met her at an early years conference in London. She is British and so is her company.The book is about her grandson, David. A few reviewers here say the tooth fairy is "African-American." I doubt it. Please stop assuming that a person with brown skin, "African" features, is "African-American." They are only African-Americans if they are Americans of African descent. The author is British, the boy is British, so I'm going to assume the tooth fairy is British, too. People of African descent live in many countries, not just the U.S.!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Tooth Fairy Story Ever! 13 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What a splendid story! From a Tooth Fairy who's a hip African American woman using a computer, to a child in a wheelchair, this book adds unusual features to a traditional story, enhancing it immeasurably. It includes just the right amount of suspense and humor for young children. The photorealistic illustrations are spectacular. I couldn't recommend it more.
5.0 out of 5 stars Who doesn't recall the wonders of a lost molar? 21 July 2003
By Reginald D. Garrard - Published on
Format: Library Binding
For the child in all of us comes "Dave and the Tooth Fairy". Contemporized with a modern tooth fairy complete with ambition and computer, the story has a timeless quality of which both parents and children can relate.
For those kids that have lost a tooth, the book is a satisfying reminder; for those yet to do such, it is a vision of financial pleasures to come.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great little book 7 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Library Binding
A truly interesting spin on the legend of the tooth fairy. Very entertaining book. I found this book for sale in a book store in West Africa, and I can see the relevance to the culture there. Really a great little read.
