This classic picture book was first published in 1993 by Tamarind Press and was greatly welcomed at that time for its diversity as it featured two BAME characters and a contemporary interpretation of the tooth fairy tradition. The story of Dave, who comes up with a resourceful plan to replace his missing tooth, and Afiya, a very modern Tooth Fairy who uses a computer and longs for a new, preferably day- time, job, will be just as appealing 25 years on. The book has been re-illustrated and updated for a new generation of readers. The illustrations, by Welsh illustrator Carl Pearce, reflect the style of an animated film with characters brightly illuminated against blocks of deep background colour. The story has a satisfying outcome for all characters and this reprint of an old favourite is still a title to be recommended and enjoyed all these years later.
