Kids learn about the Tooth Fairy, Prince Plaque, and brave Sir Brushalot.
When Nicholas isn’t sure about giving up his baby tooth for the Tooth Fairy, his mother tells him and his two siblings the story of Pearly White City, home of the Tooth Fairy and the Tooth-Making Factory. There, citizens create grown-up teeth that grow into the holes that baby teeth leave behind. The city’s greatest enemy is Prince Plaque, whose evil wizards tempt children with sugar potions. He and his Tartar Troopers attack the city three times daily only to be foiled by Sir Brushalot, the Tooth Fairy’s brother and the leader of the Knights of Floss.
At story’s end, the children brush and floss to fight Prince Plaque. The ongoing battle between plaque and brushing has never been so much fun, and the characters make delightful additions to the traditional Tooth Fairy legend.
Young readers will gravitate toward the colourful images and charming cast. A funny, enjoyable fairy tale and hygiene guide.

First of all, I love the illustrations. Kids would definitely love it too. I like the story too. It teaches children to take care of their teeth. As we all know, kids hate brushing and going to the dentist.

This was a really cute and very funny story.
Our daughter is too young to lose teeth yet, but I will look forward to reading her this again, at that stage, as she loved it now and found it funny, but I know she will love it even more then! Great illustrations to match the lighthearted nature of the book.

While my inner dental hygienist cringed at the explanation of how adult teeth are formed the parent in me thought that this book was a great introduction to dental hygiene.
The author does a great job of making dental hygiene fun by introducing us to the evil Prince Plaque and explaining how we all need to fight him and his Tartar Troopers. This would make a great book for dentists to hand out at the dental office for a patients first visit.

Review from 5-year-old
This is amazing its so fun. Prince Plaque is so scary I don't want him hurting my teeth with his Tartar Troops.
This is a fun little bedtime story for when kids start to loose their teeth, it helps them learn the importance of brushing their teeth properly to avoid bad things happening to them.
And the fun activity pages are super fun and informative for the kids We had fun learning the different types of teeth that help us chew our food.

Munchkin just had another dentist check up and has been loosing teeth like crazy, so I thought this would be a fun book to check out.
I love that this gives readers something other than the more girly Tooth Fairy to read about. This is a fun way to get kids a little more into brushing their teeth, especially the boys, by turning it into a battle against germs and plaque.
There is also some great resources about baby teeth and adult teeth and more fun activities for the kids.
All in all it is a really fun and unique book.

Overall my 5 year old, who just lost her first tooth, enjoyed this book. I thought it was cute, nice illustrations and a good storyline. Cute names of characters.
The coloring pages and games at the back as well as the information on teeth/diagram was nice to have. Overall we really enjoyed this book.

The tale of this story, all about the tooth fairy and brushing your teeth, is a very nice feature. The tooth fairy picks up the teeth donated by children and makes them into big teeth and then delivers them back to the children at night. Prince Plaque wants kids to get cavities, which is not good at all! Lucky for Tooth Fairy, her brother Sir Brushalot and the Knights of Floss will help defend the city!
The story is unique. It's definitely a different take on what the tooth fairy does, but I think kids will find it interesting and amusing.

A book that talks about dental hygiene and why it’s important using a story that kids can relate to.

Yes! Ohh my gosh yes. I LOVED this! There aren't that many books about the Tooth Fairy and this one is so well done! I wish I had been given a copy of this as a young child because it's also an activity book with colouring in pages and dot to dot puzzles and it has a page detailing what your teeth are called and at what age you lose them plus a page to record when you lost your baby teeth.
This story will be sure to get kids to want to brush their teeth. It definitely would have worked for me and made it seem less of a chore and more of something that I'd actually want to do. Any book that does this for a child will be very appreciated by the parents. It even made me laugh and smile while reading it. Very well done! Highly recommend.

I liked the idea behind this story and that it encourages children to clean their teeth, but the book was lacking something for me. I thought that the images were a nice touch and clearly a lot of effort has gone into illustrating the story but personally I didn't like them too much as they were a little too fake for me. It was an easy story to follow and I liked the good vs evil approach.

Amazing story and great way to encourage kid to brush their teeth. Compliments the classic Tooth Fairy, while encouraging oral hygiene.

Sir Brushalot is a great story with a very positive theme. My 3 children all enjoy this tale of villains (a.k.a plaque) and heroes battling to save the kingdom of healthy teeth. It has been a welcome addition to our home library. I would think that any dentist’s office would want to have it in their waiting area too.
