Little Lulu is such an adorable main character in Lulu and the Missing Tooth Fairy! She has lost a tooth, and she has a whole plan in place. She know what she’s spending the money on, she is ready to put the tooth under her pillow…now all she needs is the tooth fairy! When her tooth fairy doesn’t show, she is disappointed, but willing to try again.
I really liked the story for this book. We see the perspective of Lulu as well as the tooth fairy. The tooth fairy is just graduating from tooth fairy school, and Lulu is her first assignment. The story has some problem solving for the tooth fairy, and some determination on both characters’ parts. It’s a great story for young children, and it’s one my daughter has already asked to read over and over.
The illustrations for Lulu and the Missing Tooth Fairy are amazing. They are rich in color and in details. Both my daughter and I enjoyed taking in all there was to see on each page!
This is a good book for readers that are in preschool all the way to middle elementary!

Just the Facts:
Lulu and the Missing Tooth Fairy by S.E. Richey
Publisher: Bright Meadow Press
Pub Date: February 28, 2022
S. E. Richey was born in New York and moved to Puerto Rico with her family when she was four years old. She grew up in the mountains of La Cordillera Central of Puerto Rico. She spoke four-year-old English and Spanish, but soon forgot English. She loved running around her grandparents’ finca, picking wild strawberries, sucking on ripe coffee beans (so sweet!), sugar cane (so sweet!), and searching for cow pies with her siblings and cousins (not so sweet.).
At age eighteen, S. E. Richey swore she would never live in another small town in the country where she had to drive through a canyon with lots of curvy roads just to get to the city. Oh, how dizzy and nauseous those curves made her!
She moved to the United States where she attended college in a small town in Idaho, married and lived in a small town in California (her second home) with lots and lots of curves just to get to the city (yes, she got dizzy and nauseated), and now she lives in a small-ish town in Idaho with her husband and four children. Their two dogs, Roscoe and Cali, and Conan, the fat cat, complete the family. She loves to sing WAY too loudly in the car. She loves Dulce de Leche ice cream (even if it hurts her tummy). And she loves to read and write silly stories that make her giggle and stories that tug at the heartstrings.
