Above the clouds and below the stars there was a magical place called the Tooth Fairy Kingdom built out of teeth. Larry Skadarry lived on the outskirts of the town in a bright and airy house. He loved to collect the extracted teeth, but he was forgetful and distracted. Though he set out every night with his list, Larry would sometimes get distracted by the shooting stars or spend time counting the petals on flowers. Once he had a meal with a lost owl and another time he was on the beach making sandcastles. One day he landed wrongly in Paris instead of Perth, and more kids lost their teeth and his list kept growing. If the tooth was still there, that meant Larry Skadarry was on his way to pick up the tooth. Hopefully, Larry Skadarry will be able to collect all the teeth and also finish the roof of his house.

Larry Skadarry: The Forgetful Tooth Fairy by Whitney Beatty is a magical rhyming story that will take readers into the whimsical world of forgetful tooth fairies. Children will enjoy following Larry Skadarry and seeing how he fails to make it to every house to collect the teeth because of his forgetfulness. Becca Kaiser makes the story and the characters tangible to readers with her whimsical illustrations. Parents and grandparents can use the book for bedtime storytelling and also for read-aloud sessions at home. Tutors can read aloud to youngsters about the forgetfulness and distracted nature of Larry Skadarry in classrooms. Parents can use it to explain to their children why the Tooth Fairy did not turn up. The whimsy, magic, and enchantment in the story make it one that children will enjoy.
