Hodder Children's, 2014. ISBN 9781444918359
It's Christmas Eve and when the Tooth Fairy gets a message from Robin Redbreast that Little Tim Tucker has lost a tooth, it puts an end to her hopes and plans for an early night at home. Outside a winter's gale is blasting and she is tossed every which way, ending up lost. But in the distance she hears a strange sound and into sight comes Santa and his sleigh. He rescues her but that is not the end of her adventures... will Little Tim Tucker wake up to a nice surprise or will he be disappointed.
Santa Claus, Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy are such an integral part of the early lives of children the world over that to have two of the three team up and help each other has to be a good combination that will appeal to our very young children. Working together, Santa and the Tooth Fairy show that all sorts of problems can be overcome - each has skills and that special something that when put together as a team can solve all sorts of dilemmas.
Bright glossy pictures, imaginative layout and rhyme and rhythm move the story along making an original and intriguing adventure story that will delight as the Christmas Countdown continues.
