“I believe deeply in the power of myth, and bringing some positive wonder into children’s minds,” Lavigne writes.
Aurora, ON (Vocus/PRWEB) February 24, 2011
Everyone knows what children get when the tooth fairy visits, but what do the fairies do with all of those teeth after they’re taken, and what kind of lives do they lead? Find out in The Adventures of Matilda the Tooth Fairy: Episode One: Mission Bobby (published by AuthorHouse), the fantastical new tooth fairy tale by Mark Hunter Lavigne.
Matilda is one of the most talented tooth fairies in all of Tooth Fairy Kingdom, and with a rebellious streak and an appetite for adventure, she’s the Tooth Fairy Queen’s first choice when a special assignment comes up. The whole kingdom is dedicated to collecting teeth to build a shiny new castle, so the more teeth they can collect, the better. Young Bobby has lost six baby teeth, but getting to them without being seen - or eaten by the family’s cat, which nearly happened the last time Matilda was at Bobby’s house – will prove to be no easy feat. The Queen explains:
“It’s a fireplace entry,” (meaning Matilda can get into the house through the chimney) “so that part is easy,” continued the Queen. “But the gerbil is a special Watch Gerbil, who spins its wheel noisily to wake the cats, who will wake up the dogs, who will wake up Bobby’s parents if anything is wrong, especially if a tooth fairy visits.”
Always ready to tackle a challenge, Matilda wastes no time in getting started on her mission. Will she succeed? And what will happen when she winds up in the Tooth Fairy Forest, surrounded by Tooth Fairy Pirates who have been banned from the kingdom? Find out in The Adventures of Matilda the Tooth Fairy, a winsome tale that readers of all ages can sink their teeth into. “I believe deeply in the power of myth, and bringing some positive wonder into children’s minds,” Lavigne writes. Help keep the tooth fairy myth alive with this new book accompanied by colorful illustrations from Linda Ann Proctor.
