Fairy David Bouchard illustrated by Dean Griffiths OLA Best Bets 2001 Best of the Best North of the 49th This fairy does not take kindly to non-believers! This is a one-of-a-kind fairy. No gauzy dresses or flowing tresses for her. No delicate wand with a sparkly tip. She rides a Harley and brandishes a wand of leather. Her hair flies behind her in long braids. Her job is to look after the magical need of the children on the street. And no child needs to worry when she is around! Right now the trouble lies with Victoria and her loose tooth. When Victoria's curmudgeonly father refuses to believe that the tooth fairy will come to trade a coin for his daughter's tooth, the one-of-a-kind fairy rides in to teach him a lesson he will not soon forget. David Bouchard has writted numerous best-selling and award-winning books for children. Known for his rhythmic poetry, he is the author of Prairie Born, Barnyard Bestiary and many other spectacular picturebooks. David is an accomplished public speaker, in growing demand across the continent. His daughter, Victoria, need never fear that the tooth fairy will miss coming to her house! Dean Griffiths' ability to draw people (and one unusual fairy) in whom character abounds, his attention to detail where Harleys are concerned, and his original wit all contribute to the quality of this picturebook. Earlier titles, Kathleen Cook Waldron's Loon Lake Fishing Derby and Ainslie Manson's Ballerinas Don't Wear Glasses, are just as much fun.Bouchard, David is the author of 'Fairy' with ISBN 9781551432120 and ISBN 1551432129.
