Warning: Adorable Tooth Fairy on the Loose! By L. Mccarthy
What a charming, whimsical book! Perfect for children transitioning to reading chapter books and discovering the spell-binding worlds they can visit on their own. Burk uses wonderfully evocative language that will engage young readers. Her use of imagery and overall tone are respectful, playful and thoroughly delightful. Moreno's illustrations perfectly capture the hijinks. What will Bluma's next adventure be? What child doesn't want to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the Tooth Fairy??
Magical read! By Amazon Customer
This is a charming, magical picture book about a super cute tooth fairy and her adventures as she does her duty visiting the various children's homes during the night. Children will be enchanted by the story as our young tooth fairy, Bluma, tries to come up with a clever way to get the tooth from Bradley without falling for his trap. To do so, she must come up with ideas and enlist the help of a furry friend. The language is simple, yet playful and lovely. Highly recommended!
Charming early chapter book for boys and girls! By Momofthree on September 24, 2014
The Tooth Fairy Trap is adorable from start to finish. This early chapter book is both captivating and easy to read. My kids loved reading about Bluma's nightly adventures of visiting children's bedrooms to collect teeth, and trying to come up with a plan to outsmart the dreaded Bradley who once again has set a fairy trap. I loved how the illustrator included the author's books on one of the children's bookshelves, and how the author included her own children's letters to the tooth fairy at the end of the book. We'll be reading this over and over again. Loved it!

The Tooth Fairy Trap, a chapter book, tells a fun story about a Tooth Fairy named Bluma. She is dainty and dedicated, yet she still has much to learn before she perfects her craft of loose tooth retrieval. Bradley is her nemesis, devising Fairy traps an old Gnome would envy. Yet helped by a reluctant hamster, Bluma is able to complete her night’s work, as well as outwit Bradlee. Amy Moreno’s delicately fey sketches fly from page to page. They help create a magical mood. I recommend Tooth Fairy Trap to any child with a loose tooth—plus those who love fairy tales. 5 stars.
Perfect read for the early chapter book crowd By EMA 123
A sweet and engaging early chapter book that both boys and girls will enjoy. Bluma, a tooth fairy allergic to her own fairy dust, must use her wits and determination to capture Bradley's tooth - without getting caught in the trap he set for her. She continues on her nightly rounds to other children's homes as she collects their teeth, and is able to also use her clever resourcefulness to outwit Bradley - with a little help from Bradley's mischievous hamster. Charming b&w illustrations bring Bluma and the rest of the characters to life.
Great story for boys and girls, on the important occasion of losing a tooth! By Burke
What a great story and the perfect gift accompanying the "Quarter" you leave under your child's pillow! Your child will delight in Bluma's adventure and will surely try to make the next lost tooth occasion as exciting as the ones in the book. I especially like how the tooth fairy dealt with a fake tooth to get money...an additional treat are the actual letters to the tooth fairy from the author's daughters at the end of the book.
