Beautiful illustrations and cleverly written but the vocabulary is confusing for children.

Here's the problem: Bernice Sparklestein, once the best Fairy Godmother of all time, is at the end of the road with her current job. Her friend Edith B. Cuspid, Tooth Fairy Second Class, is stunned - but jumps in immediately to help Bernice find a new line of work. Edith is that overly chatty gal we all know, with too-big jewelry and rhinestone-decorated glasses, but she also has a big heart for her friend. If you're willing to read this out loud with lots of expression and character, it's well worth it.

My son got so more out of this when we re-read it in early 2017, when he was nine. I think he felt like he was in on the joke as Edith carried out her final strategy, whereas a few years ago he didn't necessarily pick up on what she was doing.
