What the Dickens

By Gregory Maguire

Meet What-the-Dickens, a rogue tooth fairy and one of Gregory Maguire’s most captivating characters ever!

When ten-year-old Dinah and her two siblings are trapped by a terrible storm, cousin Gage keeps their spirits up with an unlikely story — that skibbereen, aka tooth fairies, live in warring colonies right in your neighborhood. Dinah is skeptical at first, but when the real world seems unbearable, stories told by candlelight have a way of becoming real. Dinah starts to — and wants to — believe. Don’t we all?
