Belle Isle Books, an imprint of Brandylane Publishers, Inc. of Richmond, Virginia, has announced the release of What Happened to the Tooth Fairy?, a new children’s book from author Graham Gardner and illustrator Nancy LeBlanc. Gardner’s silly story of the Tooth Fairy, along with LeBlanc’s colorful and imaginative artwork, is sure to capture the imaginations of young readers. Parents, too, will love the lessons the Tooth Fairy teaches little Oliver! The creative duo behind holiday hit The Santa Beacon delivers again in this unique children’s adventure.
Oliver is very excited to lose his big front tooth! But when he puts the tooth under his pillow, he is disappointed to discover the following morning that the Tooth Fairy never came. Curious about what may have happened to her, Oliver builds a special fairy trap and waits for the Fairy to arrive. When she does, she reveals to Oliver the secrets behind just what can prevent her from making it to every kid’s house each night. With What Happened to the Tooth Fairy?, Gardner and LeBlanc bring to life a fun-loving and flighty fairy who has an awful lot to say for such a small creature and even more to teach a curious child.
Graham Gardner was born in West Berlin on an American army base, grew up in a beautiful little town called Martinsville, Virginia, and now lives in Richmond, Virginia with his family in a very strange house on the river. He received his degree in dentistry at Virginia Commonwealth University, and became an orthodontist at New York University, so he gets to help people with their smiles every day.
Nancy Cecere LeBlanc was born and grew up in New Jersey and studied art therapy and art education. While volunteering, working odd jobs and raising her children, she has continued to work on her art in a variety of ways, including painting walls and furniture, and making jewelry. Two things have always remained constant in Nancy’s life, and that is her love of animals and her love of art. She currently lives in Henrico, Virginia with her husband and three children.
