From the Publisher
From the author of the best-selling WICKED, a transporting
tale-within-a-tale about the strange world of skibbereen - aka
tooth fairies - and the universal need to believe.
A terrible storm is raging, and ten-year-old Dinah is huddled by
candlelight with her brother, sister, and cousin Gage, who is
telling a very unusual tale. 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 that
the world is both richer and less sure than they ever imagined.
