The TOOTHLESS FAIRY – an amazing story about the meaning of beauty, friendship and sharing Halloween candy! 

More than anything, the sad, lonely Toothless Fairy wants a friend to play with, but with her single tooth and face full of warts, she feels unlovable and fears she will scare other kids away. But when Halloween comes around, she notices the kids are not afraid of all the scary costumes. Realizing this might be her chance to make a friend, she comes up with a brilliant plan, and that is how a new Halloween tradition begins.

The Toothless Fairy, a fun and moving new children’s book aimed at helping children and families create fun, new, healthy family toothfairytraditions was released August 14, 2015 by Night River Press. As the Toothless Fairy learns about friendship and being different, a new tradition begins on Halloween, after the celebrations have ended and all the candy has been collected. The Toothless Fairy leaves a special gift to her new friend in exchange for the left over candy she gives her – perhaps this is something she could do for all kids that tried?

Skeeter Buck, creator of the Toothless Fairy story and tradition, shares “This story began when our son Daniel was two years old and we wanted to find a way to celebrate the tradition of trick-or-treat without having to worry about Daniel having too much candy. After he was done counting, sorting and playing with his candy we asked him to pick out his favorite pieces and leave a note for the Toothless Fairy with the remaining candy as a gesture of sharing.” As both her son and the tradition grew, Buck saw that “Not only was this an opportunity to manage the over-abundance of candy, but also to share with children in our community not able to participate in Halloween due to special circumstances. We have connected with dentists, hospitals and shelters to help manage the collection and distribution within our communities.”
Buck shares her passion for family, community and life-long learning on her production company site, http://SkeetieBs.com. Toothless Fairy is the first of many expected creative projects planned and has been praised by early reviewers as “engaging and beautifully illustrated story” that “is a great way to make Halloween even better and should be a part of every family’s library.”
