Review Quotes

"Bell-Rehwoldt's spunky spitfire of a redheaded tooth fairy defies historical conceptions." —Kirkus Reviews

"This fairy has a bit of a (tooth) chip on her shoulder, but those who like their myths busted will find this a hoot." —Horn Review

"…challenges conventional wisdom and the popular imagination to great effect. For maximum giggles read this one aloud to a group of children and watch their imaginations soar." —Book Buds blog

"A revealing exposé into the brutal, never-before-brought-to-light work of the dental dwarf of the night." —Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast blog

"I rarely rate books ten out of ten, but this one takes the cake." —BookIdeas.com

I wrote this book after registering for a picture book workshop offered by The Highlights Foundation. We were told to arrive with a completed picture book draft — which would be critiqued by the instructors and our fellow students. So, early one morning, as the workshop loomed close, I told myself that I couldn’t get out of bed until I came up with my book idea. As my brain rattled around, jumping from thought to thought, I eventually found myself wondering why the tooth fairy is always portrayed as this dainty, magical creature — complete with wings, wand, and flouncing skirts. To my mind, what has kept the tooth fairy going all these years is the thrill of the hunt. I bet she's as addicted to nabbing baby teeth as I am to dark chocolate! I see her as very James Bondish — with quite the attitude!

BIO:

Sheri Bell-Rehwoldt, a military brat, graduated from the University of Texas (Hook 'em, Horns!!) and has the framed diploma to prove it, though she can't quite remember where she put it.

Sheri used to have a "real" job, but these days she's an award-winning magazine writer and author, editor, and marketer. She offers authors and other clients marketing and social media services. Her children's picture book, You Think It's Easy Being the Tooth Fairy? (David Slonim, illustrator) has sold 20,000+ copies. Published by Chronicle Books, it is available in hard copy in English and Hebrew, and soft copy in French. A soft copy and audio CD is available via Scholastic.

Sheri wrote the book after the Tooth Fairy made a late night appearance, during which she demanded that Sheri set the record straight. "I'm a technology chick," Sheri swears the tiny tooth-nabber declared. "The whole fairy dust thing is soooo old school."

Sheri is available for school visits and conference workshops.
