Kaylee loves to pull pranks on everyone, even the tooth fairy. Her favorite holiday is April Fools Day and she has a twinkle of mischief in her eyes.

This book is perfect for young children who are starting to lose their teeth. Children are fascinated by the tooth fairy and this will only make a child’s imagination soar with the idea of the tooth fairy.
