New York, NY, December 17, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The folklore of the Tooth Fairy still captures the minds of children everywhere. They often ask questions such as “What the Tooth Fairy does with the teeth she collects? Where does the Tooth Fairy live? How does the Tooth Fairy travel around? What does the Tooth Fairy look like or what does she do when she needs a rest?”
In Letters from the Tooth Fairy, children will find out. These letters, written in response to an eight year-old boy’s letters, are to incite the imagination of children and to entertain those who read the letters aloud at bedtime.
