Skeletina and the Greedy Tooth Fairy Review

In Skeletina and the Greedy Tooth Fairy written by Susie Jaramillo, Skeletina of the in-between world (the place where dreams happen) is back and enjoying a rainy day. Just when she sits down to relax she hears a strange sound coming from the other side of a wall. She peeks into the room and sees a little girl sobbing and covering her mouth.

Concerned, Skeletina investigates what’s wrong with the little girl names Olivia. Olivia removes her hands to show Skeletina that some of her teeth have fallen out! More teeth pop out and are whisked away by some quick-footed mice.

Skeletina knows exactly what’s going on, it’s the Hada Malvada up to no good again! Hada Malvada is a greedy tooth fairy who collects the teeth of children who lie.

Skeletina encourages Olivia to come clean about some of the lies she has told and Olivia does much to the dismay of the Hada Malvada. Olivia admits to the things she lies about which frees her brother Max from his chocolate prison.

Olivia, Skeletina, and Max enjoy the chocolate treats of the in-between world and Olivia notes that she is enjoying the dream when she and Max return to their own world (it’s implied Olivia wakes up from her dream.)

Skeletina and the Greedy Tooth Fairy is a fun take on Latin folklore and Skeletina is a great friendly character to introduce young readers to other cultures. The illustrations are so engaging and are mostly black and white with pops of color to designate the in-between world with its special human visitors. Easy-to-read text and unique characters make Skeletina and the Greedy Tooth Fairy a great choice for Halloween reading!
