After reading Fairy, you may acquire a different view of that revved-up motorcycle you hear roaring down your street in the middle of the night. The title character of David Bouchard's picture book is a certain "one-of-a-kind tooth fairy" whose preferred mode of transportation is a magic Harley-Davidson. While monitoring "the magical and mystical needs" of the kids on her street, she encounters little Victoria Stubbs, who is about to lose a front tooth. Victoria naturally expects an imminent visit from the tooth fairy, a creature her father clearly doesn't believe in. Mr. Stubbs is about to be taught a lesson he won't soon forget.
David Bouchard's refreshingly original presentation rescues the tooth fairy from the usual bland stereotype with enough idiosyncratic character traits to warrant her own talk show. Many of Dean Griffith's dynamic, full-colour illustrations give the reader a shared sense of the fairy's point of view, as we too hover in mid-air, gleefully watching the hapless Mr. Stubbs get his comeuppance.
