From the author of the best-selling Wicked, a transporting tale-within-a-tale about the strange world of skibereen--aka tooth fairies--and the universal need to believe.
Format: 5 CDs, Unabridged
It's the story of What-the-Dickens, a newly hatched orphan creature who finds he has an attraction to teeth, a crush on a cat named McCavity, and a penchant for getting into trouble. One day he happens upon a feisty girl skibberee who is working as an Agent of Change--trading coins for teeth--and learns that there is a dutiful tribe of skibbereen (call them tooth fairies) to which he hopes to belong. As his tale of discovery unfolds, however, both What-the-Dickens and Dinah come to see taht the world is both richer and less sure than they ever imagined.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit wordy for it's target audience I figured this would be a good book for my 9yr who loves to read~he did like the book and said it was a good story.....however he sometimes had to reread or flip back...or even look up a few words to get the whole meaning of the story. Meanwhile my 13yr old son found it a little too 'elementary school' for his reading preferences now. Not sure what age the author had as an intended audience but it seems to have missed the mark with our boys, and they enjoy series like Percy Jackson ,Harry Potter & even Diary of a wimpy kid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can you handle the Tooth? This is the cute tale of three children; Zeke, Dinah and Rebecca-Ruth; who are caught in the middle of an unusually large storm. They are being taken care of by their older cousin, Gage. Despite their lack of food, electricity and parents, Gages tells the story of a tooth fairy called What-the-Dickins. Maguire paints a beautiful picture of the world of Skibereen in this heartwarming story. He answers the question of what the Tooth Fairy uses the teeth for and why the leave coins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming and Imaginative The most charming and humourous childrens book I have read in ages. Well written and suitable for all ages, with enough debth of universe to keep even the most uninterested reader entertained. 'What the Dickens' is the story of a young girl, her brother, sister and cousin, all of whom are stranded at home without their parents during a fierce hurricane. To sooth the children, Gage, the oldest, tells the children the story of 'What-the-Dickens'; an orphaned skibbereen - the technical term for what we know as a tooth fairy -searching for his place to belong. Maguire is able to capture our main characters confusion and curiosity while keeping him sweet and loveable. While filed with our 9-12 age group, this book would entertain anyone of any age, provided they were willing to go along for the ride.
