Wilmington, NC – March 1, 2010
The newest tooth fairy book in the award-winning series The Real Tooth Fairies has just been released with an anti-bullying theme that is receiving praise from parents and educators alike. The newest title for girls ages 5-9 is called, “Gwendolyn Becomes a Real Tooth Fairy” and it explores the subject of teasing and bullying at school, which touches the lives of all children.
Gwendolyn, who is about to become the newest tooth fairy in Real Fairyland, faces a real challenge as this magical story begins. She’s the new girl in school trying to make friends. After meeting a girl who is very unkind, Gwendolyn tries to join in with the fairy group, but to no avail. This mean girl, Babette, is not making room for Gwendolyn in her friendship circle and she wants to be sure her friends don’t include the new fairy either.
Every girl can identify with this tooth fairy who just wants to be accepted for who she is.
But in Real Fairyland, as in an Earthie girl’s life, if a girl keeps a Glowy attitude, she will find others who see her special Glow. Gwendolyn befriends one tooth fairy and then another tooth fairy when she accidentally flies on the Blast-Off Balcony to the Tower of Dreams. Here she discovers that helping an Earthie girl’s dream come true takes her closer to reaching her own dream.
After a harrowing discovery at the Flying Divas Fashion Show where Gwendolyn’s designs shine, all ends well with an apology and forgiveness. Through this touching story, girls see how teasing and bullying can affect someone’s feelings in a very real way. They also discover tools for overcoming friendship challenges and believing in themselves. When Gwendolyn becomes a tooth fairy, after all her trials, it’s a magical moment every girl will celebrate.
