    Tallulah the tooth fairy, founder and CEO of Teeth Titans, Incorporated, confronts an unexpected challenge in this brightly-illustrated picture-book. Although she and her assistant tooth fairies take care of the world's children, when it comes to their baby teeth falling out, she isn't sure how to proceed when a little boy leaves her a note explaining that he has lost his tooth. Should she still leave him a reward, even though he doesn't have a t...

    Was looking forward to seeing a tooth fairy of color, but alas this is another picture book for adults. Sigh. Such a missed opportunity here. The beginning left me wondering "what do I say about this book??!" Too many agendas in this one. When Tallulah went into the house to gather a tooth the story picked up, but sadly this will be not be a storytime book for my elementary students.

    Eh. While I absolutely loved the artwork of this picture book, I think that I only enjoyed it as an adult. It didn't feel as though it was written for children especially down to some of the racial irony that was used within the text. I understand where the author was coming from as a black female adult; however, if I was to sit down and attempt to read this to my daughter when she turns 4 or 5 I honestly don't believe that she would come close t...

    While not necessarily a bad book, Tallulah the Tooth Fairy CEO may represent a bit of a mismatch between itself and its intended audience. As an adult, I was slightly bored with the first part of the book that sets up Tallulah's enterprise as a large corporation (Teeth Titans Inc.) and places her as the head of this vast tooth-collecting empire. Does a little kid really want to read about an adult's schedule of therapy, yoga, and errands? The sto...

    I loved this book! I actually laughed out loud at one point reading it. I love the artwork. The little details enhance the humor of the writing. Tallulah is an inspiration. I feel like I should follow her "strict schedule that keeps her both busy and fulfilled." Great possible answers to common questions about the tooth fairy with an empowering role model of a successful (and stylish) CEO for little girls (and, of course, other kids too.) A++++

    This book is too much. It's too long to be a picture book; it's much better suited for a middle grade chapter book. I could see a whole series of Tallulah books for kids 8-12 years old. The content is really mature for the intended audience (running a business, training employees, there's even a bit about protesting fur). Picture books tend to be written for children under age 8. I don't think 5 year olds would find this interesting. There's a lo...

    Oh. My. Goodness. Did I love this children’s book… I’m well-known among those who know me for liking the more, let’s say, unusual children’s books. Felicity Floo is a household favorite, as are the deliciously off-beat Hat books by Jon Klassen and the life-altering realizations of Arnie the Doughnut, to name a few…This latest find isn’t exactly quirky, so much as it’s stylish. That’s a word you don’t hear applied to children...

    Here is a picture book for all you woke grownups out there! The art is gorgeous, and it features plenty of dreamy grownup stuff like doing yoga, and running board meetings, and beautiful fashion, and TONS of people of color (who are not Asian or Latinx). So rejoice grownups here is your picture book for you!Sorry little kids, if you were looking for a cool story about the Tooth Fairy, nope. This sluggish story is firmly bogged down in Grown-Up Gr...

    Love the stylish illustrations full of pizzazz, but the story fell a bit flat for me—overly wordy and full of humor aimed at adults, not kids.

    I first came across Dr. Tamara Pizzoli's "Tallulah The Tooth Fairy CEO" on a list on Publisher's Weekly, and from the title and cover alone wanted to give to give the book a try because of the inclusion of a woman of color as the main character, and for the creative concept and approach to the iconic woman of lore. What I did not expect was for the book to be as wordy as it was. The illustrations were full of witty and fun details, but most would...

    The perfect book for a woman obsessed with Oprah. This is NOT a children's book. Not only is the story totally over the top for this age audience but there is even a page where the tooth fairy is relaxing by drinking alcohol. I didn't care for this book at all.

    I loved the illustrations, but the story left a lot to be desired, especially for a children’s book.

    Now this is really a different twist on the whole tooth fairy fantasy. It was clear that she take her job very seriously. Also look at her afro, so cool!!

    This is such a lovely book! Everything about it just draws you in. The story is snappy, funny, and affirming. The illustrations are sharp and beautiful--and I totally wanted some of Tallulah's outfits! I highly recommend this book for children and the child in all of us!

    Awesome illustrations and mock serious biography tone made me smile. I'm not sure that intended audience is going to quite get this though.

    okay, this wins best picture book of the year. cute art, funny story, positivity, and just enough jokes for the adults to not get totally sick of it too quickly.

    This creative and stylish book had me cracking up! Tallulah is the CEO of all tooth fairies, and it's not a job she takes lightly. She knows everything there is about the job-- except one night, a young boy has left a note in place of his truly lost tooth... and the Employee Manual doesn't specify what to do in this situation! Even as an adult, I hope to one day be as cool and successful as Tallulah-- and she will inspire you to be, too!

    I know its a children's book but I bought this book for myself. Once I saw the cover I had to get it. A tooth fairy named Tallulah and she has a beautiful afro. Tallulah is a business women, she hangs with Mrs. Clause, does yoga and attends therapy. And the illustrations are A+. Highly recommend.

    Facts: Some of y’all were mad when you learned that Ariel is black.Facts: some of y’all are about to be shook in the spirit because it turns out that the tooth fairy is a black woman with an Afro, a great sense of style and she’s a BOSS! (Alexa play: Bossy by Kelis so it can serve as the background music for this review) #KidLITTallulah The Tooth Fairy by Dr. Tamara Pizzoli is the reason the little black girl in me was shouting “behind th...

    I think another review said it perfectly: weird, but fun. I enjoyed the down-to-earth business sense of this Tooth Fairy, who doesn't often get fleshed out with this level of detail. Interesting moments in the pictures and text asides: I particularly appreciated the happy hour meet up between Tallulah and Mrs. Claus. I have my doubts about whether Tallulah would really have neglected to create a policy for missing teeth - she seems pretty on top ...

    This book is a picture book for older elementary school children and maybe younger middle school children. The book was about Tallulah who get stumped when a child leaves a note under their pillow rather than a tooth. And had to figure out what to do in return. I am giving this book a 4 stars because in my opinion it focuses more on how Tallulah gets to her position as CEO rather than what would be more interesting for young children which is the...

    I really loved the artwork, very stylish! The story itself took a little while to get moving - too wordy at first, especially for kids in my storytimes, alas. I appreciated the dig at "alllivesmatter" on the page with the board of directors, but I doubt kids will get it - that part was definitely aimed at adults reading the story. Overall, it was a cute concept, but either aimed at a more elementary school audience, or at the adult, and perhaps n...
