Re-reading this series with my 7-year-old son, and I'm pleased as punch that he loves them as much as I do. Wonderful storytelling, beautiful writing and fantastically imaginative. ( )

I love this author & this series. The updated twist on traditional fairy tale folk tale creatures is so creative. So far the author has told the story of Santa, Easter Bunny & now tooth fairy. The magic and mystery & fantasy is perfectly blended in each story. I can't wait for the 4th book in this series which stars Jack Frost! ( )

Joyce continues his Guardians of Childhood series with the third installment. Now, a third installment is always a delicate proposition; there's no longer the "newness" of the first book, or the excitement of "bigger and better" that a second book seems to promise. A third book, especially a third book in a series that is known to be longer, has to keep expanding the fictional world while maintaining the interest of its audience. It's a sort of balance between giving readers what they immediately want and what they, in the long-term, need.

For the most part, Joyce manages the trick, but the result is that Toothiana feels rather like a pot-boiler. We aren't finding out so much about the world of the Guardians, and we aren't really adding to their quest. Instead, this story diverts into the history of (who will be) the next hero to join the Guardians, and much of the action revolves around a conflict that involves her past and continues into the present day. You can also get some sense of where nascent plot strands are starting to tie together, and the result is a shorter book that, in many ways, feels like Joyce pausing to take stock. It's still immensely readable, but it feels less consequential - and more full of exposition - than either of the previous entries in the series.

Hopefully, the series will pick up again in a big way with the next volume, which promises to feature the Sandman - a character Joyce has already introduced in picture book form. With any luck, that will help to avert a lot of the exposition aspects and allow Joyce to charge ahead with the fun adventure. ( )

An excellent addition to "The Guardians" series! I greatly enjoyed discovering the origins of the "Tooth Fairy", but talk about one hell of a cliffhanger ending! Poor Katherine and even a bit of pity of Pitch. The next book, where we meet the Sandman, cannot be printed soon enough for this fan. ( )
