Cory hates being a Tooth fairy. The hours are horrible, the human world is dangerous, and the pay is a joke. After one last attempt to collect teeth and being chased by a pack of dogs, she quits. She tries other jobs including babysitting Humpty Dumpty and ridding her friends house of giant spiders. None of these jobs seem quite right. As she tries to find her true purpose in life she discovers that quitting the Tooth Fairy Guild is not as easy as it seems. They will try anything to get her back including fairynapping!

E.D. Baker is back with a new middle grade series set in the vast fairy tale world. The characters are familiar but the story has a few twists and turns that will keep readers turning the pages.

Cory the Tooth Fairy and her pet groundhog Nibbles are likable characters and have some pretty fun adventures as she finds out what her gifts really are. The story tends to drag in a few places and there is not as much action and adventure as I would have expected. It's a cute concept and I think diehard Baker fans will enjoy this new series.

My only big issue was the ending. It wraps up really quick and ends in a really awkward way. There is no cliffhanger and I was left wanting more but not exactly sure what "more" would be. Since it is a series and this was an ARC copy I am hoping that there might be a few changes or at least an expectation of what the next book in the series might be.

I would suggest this title to tween readers who are fans of authors like Jessica Day George, Shannon Hale, and Anne Barrows. It is a cute book and one that has some promise. ( )
