Mollie’s Magical Tooth: A Tooth Fairy Magic Land Adventure by Jana Buchmann is a picture book beautifully illustrated by Lara Korotenko in vivid colors. She, in collaboration with Jana Buchmann, instantly picks up on the unicorn theme and the fact that most little girls like pink, the brighter the better. The story opens with an argument! Mollie has a loose tooth and when it comes out, she wants to hang it around her neck on a chain Mommy has given to her. Mommy says it must be hidden under her pillow for the tooth fairy to collect in the night. Mollie goes to bed and talks to her teddy bear. What, she wonders, does the tooth fairy do with all the teeth? Will Mollie meet the tooth fairy, Miss Pearlwirl, and find out?

Four to eight-year-olds will love the tale of Mollie’s magical tooth. Jana Buchmann takes the tooth fairy myth and builds a whole new story on it. After all, why does a fairy prize teeth so much? What does Miss Pearlwirl do with them? The answers evolve into the tale of a problem that requires Mollie’s help and its happy resolution, all written correctly so it’s easy for an adult to read as a bedtime story and perfect for older children to practice reading skills. Mollie’s Magical Tooth: A Tooth Fairy Magic Land Adventure by Jana Buchmann is more than a picture book. It’s a journey in a coach - drawn by unicorns, of course – that will pull youngsters in, hold their attention, and be treasured for a lifetime.

Mollie's Magical Tooth: A Tooth Fairy Magic Land Adventure is a children’s fantasy picture book written by Jana Buchmann and illustrated by Lara Korotenko. Mollie was so excited about her loose tooth. She couldn’t wait for it to fall out. Her mom suggested that she put it under her pillow for the tooth fairy, but Mollie had another idea. She wanted to put it on the necklace her mom gave her. That way, she could show her tooth and necklace to her friends. When she finally lost her tooth, Mollie had to decide what to do. Should she give it to the tooth fairy? What did the fairy do with all those teeth anyway? As she was lying in her bed with her teddy, she thought about all those teeth and wondered if the tooth fairy kept them in sparkling jars. Then, suddenly, she heard a sneeze in her bedroom. It was the tooth fairy herself.

Jana Buchmann’s Mollie's Magical Tooth adds dimension and heft to the mythology of the tooth fairy and her role as the caretaker of children’s missing teeth for generations. Buchmann’s story is fun and exciting, and Mollie’s role in saving Magic Land is inspiring. I appreciated how the author brought in so many familiar characters from children’s fairy tales. Lara Korotenko’s brightly colored illustrations are fun and imaginative, and they bring Mollie and Miss Pearlwirl, the tooth fairy, to life brilliantly. So what does the tooth fairy do with all those teeth? Mollie's Magical Tooth: A Tooth Fairy Magic Land Adventure is a grand selection for a bedtime story. It’s highly recommended.

Mollie’s Magical Tooth by Jana Buchmann is about a little girl who loses her first tooth. Excited, Mollie decides that she wants to wear her single tooth as a necklace and isn’t too sure if she wants to give it up to the tooth fairy. When Miss Pearlwirl, the tooth fairy, comes to collect it, Mollie tells her that she isn’t sure she wants to give it up. She asks her where do the teeth go? Miss Pearlwirl tells Mollie that she has an important decision to make, so she invites Mollie along on a journey to a place called Magic Land. Mollie is in awe of all the beautiful meadows, houses and fairy gardens. Her mood soon changes when she comes upon a colorless rainbow that stretched over gray land. When Mollie learns that this rainbow not only affects the color of Magic Land but also the happiness of the inhabitants, she decides she needs to help.

I found Mollie’s Magical Tooth a really fun and colorful read. It’s a subject that most children are curious about. Who is the tooth fairy and what happens to our teeth once we put them under our pillow? Jana Buchmann has created such an adorable and magical read that kids are sure to love. Lara Korotenko has done an amazing job with the illustrations. They go together perfectly with the story and with the bright colors, it’s certainly attention-grabbing. Overall, I found this book very enjoyable and will definitely be recommending it to friends with children.
