From the bestselling picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks comes The Tooth Fairy and the Crocodile, a fun-filled adventure starring the bravest and most loveable tooth fairy around!

Ruth Mary the tooth fairy is used to collecting teeth from under the pillows of sleeping children, not animals. But when the Fairy Queen sends her off to the jungle, Ruth Mary doesn't mind. Everything goes well until she collects the tooth of a crocodile, who wakes up and decides that Ruth Mary looks like a tasty snack . . . and with her wings not working, how will the tooth fairy escape?

A brilliantly illustrated story from the creators of the What the Ladybird Heard series, which have sold over four million copies worldwide - perfect for any child with a wobbly tooth!



The Tooth Fairy and the Crocodile is another hit from Julia Donaldson. Children will love listening to the story of a tooth fairy visiting animals. What would you give an animal in exchange for a tooth? This little blue fairy has to visit three animals but, on her way home, she notices another tooth to collect. What should she do?

Lydia Monks' illustrations bring the story of Ruth Mary the fairy to life and The Tooth Fairy and the Crocodile will be enjoyed at bedtime again and again. It will also help inspire young writers to write letters to the tooth fairies. This story was enjoyed by our whole family!
