The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy

Written by Martha Brockenbrough

Illustrated by Israel Sanchez

It's the comeback of the millennium for a Tooth Fairy whose last collection was in the Mesozoic era! Oh it’s been SO, so long since the Dinosaur Tooth Fairy had a lovely dino tooth to collect.

That’s why she’s so excited when a little girl comes by with a loose, loose tooth. It’s just what she needs for her collection!

Ah, but someone ELSE wants that tooth as well! (Shhh, it’s the Human Tooth Fairy!)
Will the Dino Tooth Fairy get that precious tooth? Or will her clever rival?

There’s a toothy grin waiting for every reader in the pages of this T-riffic tale.

The author is donating ten percent of her royalties to Kids International Dental Services, which provides pro bono dental care to impoverished children in developing countries.

Reviews and Awards

“Dinosaurs and loose teeth make for a surprisingly fun read… Debut picture-book pair Brockenbrough and Sanchez are millions of years ahead of their time.” - Kirkus Reviews

“With clever wordplay and repetitive words to emphasize the Dinosaur Tooth Fairy’s emotions, this could be a fun storytime read-aloud for young readers wondering about what happens to their own lost teeth.” - Booklist

“Brockenbrough’s text is energetic and amusing, and Sanchez follows her lead with brightly colored, lively, gouache cartoon illustrations…. [T]here aren’t many books about this important rite of passage, and this one packs in plenty of fun.” – School Library Journal
