“The Tale of the Tooth Fairy” Brings Fantasy to Life
Everyone loves the tooth fairy! Losing those first few baby teeth is a rite of passage to kids, another milestone to growing up. Who hasn’t seen the unmistakable grin of a kid showing off his loose tooth, and later a toothless smile? Parents have celebrated this event with tales of the Tooth Fairy for generations. The tradition has been carried on, no doubt, because of parents’ own fond memories of finding left treasure under a pillow.
The final pages of the book also include a tooth chart and a tooth loss record for when each tooth is lost. It’s a great way to create and record childhood memories. The design of the book also makes it perfect for gift giving. Once children start to lose their teeth, they lose between 15 and 20 baby teeth within just a few years. This lovable story and gift set is a perfect way to celebrate this time in a child’s life.
The inspiration for The Tale of the Tooth Fairy came when husband and wife, Brian Ledig and Marykate Fleming, were having dinner with friends. While talking about their children, each couple began sharing stories of the tooth fairy. Not only was everyone talking about their children, but they were remembering their own fond memories of the tooth fairy. It was then that the creative duo was inspired to create a story that would celebrate this much-loved tradition.
The Tale of the Tooth Fairy begins in the mystical land of the fairies, a world in which all fairies have important jobs such as painting the rainbow and bringing sweet dreams to children. In this world, one little fairy is trying to discover what gifts she is meant to bring to the world.
Upon seeing how happy the children are when they awake, the high counsel decides to give the fairy the official job of Tooth Fairy. Once the new job has been created, many more fairies join her to bring joy to every child.
The story is written by Brian Ledig and is illustrated by long-time children’s designer and artist, Marykate Fleming. The book is full of edge-to-edge color. The illustrations are reminiscent of watercolor paintings, adding to the whimsy and playful feel of the story.
The Tale of the Tooth Fairy is released through MK & Company. MK & Company produces a line of gifts created by designer Marykate Fleming, after years of designing clothing lines for children.
