Jessica has an unusual Granny, cowboy boots, line dancing (though I don't really see why she need to be far-out for the story, but never mind). She visits, excitedly showing her 'gap' and her Granny tells her a secret she's kept since childhood...
Her grandma then tells her about the night she met a trainee tooth fairy and what happened when things didn't go quite as expected with her own tooth.
The story is then bookended back in the present with Jessica putting her own tooth under the pillow.
I was really impressed to see this unusual structure in a children's chapter book - the present, past, and present again, with the same character as old woman and young girl. I watched my son and he seemed to follow it all happily and knew what was going on.
In six short chapters, it's a pleasant read for an adult, with a few voices needed; a sweet little story and a wonderful creation in Tooth Fairy Land where everything is made from teeth (explaining just what the fairies need our teeth for!).
My son is 5 and soon to lose a tooth, I would guess, so he's fascinated by the idea now of a tooth fairy, and this made a really nice book for sharing and discussing what might happen.
One for ages 5 and above, either at bedtime, or would make a good KS1 class read.
