The Balance of Wings by Florence D'Angelo introduces Denteena, a tooth fairy assigned to a little girl, Tori. Denteena waits for Tori to lose a tooth and then takes it to fairyland, but there is something odd about Denteena. Normal tooth fairies enjoy a life of solitude and simply wait for their person to shed teeth. It's just a job, but for Denteena it's much more. She becomes curious about Tori and her home. She explores the house and makes friends with the mice and other animals. Most important of all, Denteena makes contact with Tori by leaving her notes under the pillow. No tooth fairy has ever done that before! Defying tradition, Denteena has broken most of the rules that every tooth fairy follows, and it seems that her curiosity has consequences, as she becomes trapped in their world! What happens to two-dimensional fairies that get stuck in a three-dimensional world?
