In Tilly and the Tooth Fairy by Brian G. Chambers, Tilly is about to celebrate her seventh birthday when she lost a tooth. After telling her parents, she is excited about what the Tooth Fairy will leave under her pillow so she leaves a note and then falls into a fitful sleep, awaiting the Tooth Fairy. Tilly's parents didn't have a lot of money, and her mom was concerned when her dad told her the Tooth Fairy would leave her lots of money for her tooth. After Tilly goes to sleep, this story gives an all new twist on the Tooth Fairy.
As I read this story, I could just imagine a child as the story takes them away into an enchanted forest and a fairy tale that will have them dreaming about what their experience will be with the Tooth Fairy. I love the way author Brian G. Chambers tells this story in such a simple way that each child can clearly understand. Tilly and the Tooth Fairy is a sweet little fairy tale that children will love it, just as I do.
And I can't leave out the illustrations. Sondra Nell Rymer's digital illustrations are simple gorgeous and so sweet! The format is set up so there is one page of story, followed by a page of illustrations. Each illustration follows perfectly with the page of the story before it. A child can easily look at the pictures and make up their own story. As you can tell, I loved looking at the illustrations as I read this book. I highly recommend this book for your young child.
