Dear Mrs. Toothfairy,
Hello. My name is Amelia with an A Stanley. I am six years old and go to Holy Reindeer
Catholic School. My teacher’s name is Mizz Garson and she is very nice except if you bring
fishy crackers for your snack and then she squishes up her face and makes one big eyebrow and
says, “That’s not a healthy snack.” I brought fishy crackers once but then she gave me the one
eyebrow and I told my mom to give me soup crackers instead. Mizz Garson didn’t like that either
and gave me the one eyebrow again so I told my mom to please give me a “healthy snack that
isn’t crackers” and my mom said, “Is Miss Garson a doctor now?” and I said, “No silly, she’s my
teacher. My doctor’s name is Doctor Green which is weird because he always wears white.”
Mom told me that I should put my tooth in something safe so I put it in the box for Pinkie
Pie’s shoes. It would be good if you could give me back the box because if you don’t, I won’t
have anywhere to keep Pinkie Pie’s shoes and my little brother who is only two might shove
them up his nose like he did with my Barbie shoes.
I would really like it if you could leave my two dollars in twenty-five cent coins so I can
buy some jelly beans from the machine outside the shopping store, but please don’t tell Mizz
Garson as I don’t want to get the one eyebrow.
P.S. Do you know Tinkerbelle? She is my favourite fairy. But you’re okay too.

Dear Amelia with an A,
Thank you for leaving me your first tooth. I have returned the box for Pinkie Pie’s shoes
and hope your little brother doesn’t shove anything else up his nose. If he does, you should tell
I’ve left you eight quarters but I hope you don’t spend them all on jelly beans as they are
bad for your teeth and I’m a very busy fairy and would rather not have to come back next week
because your teeth have all fallen out.
I do know Tinkerbelle but she lives in the Pixie Hollow so I don’t see her very often.

Dear Mrs. Tooth Fairy,
How are you? Did you have a good Christmas? I got a Sleeping Beauty horse. I wanted a
real horse but Mom explained that Santa couldn’t fit one in his sleigh.
I am leaving you my second front tooth. It got wiggly before Christmas but just fell out
today when I was eating my carrots which I didn’t like because they were cooked and all mushy.
Mom said I had to eat them or I would have to go to bed because I was giving her the stress so I
ate them because I didn’t want to give her the stress because then she would have to lie down
and Dad doesn’t read me as many stories.
I am not using Pinkie Pie’s shoe box this time because my little brother put it in the toilet
and then Mom said I couldn’t have it anymore on account of the germs. I really wanted it back
but I didn’t argue because I know that Mom REALLY doesn’t like the germs and that’s why we
have to wash our hands with soap even when we don’t wipe our bum.
It’s okay if you give me a Twoney or a Oney this time. The jelly bean machine is broken
plus I am saving up to buy a new car because Dad says his is a piece of garbage and garbage day
is Friday so then he will no longer have a car.

P.S. I can almost fit my whole tongue in the hole where my teeth fell out but I only try when I’m
in bed because Mizz Garson says it is rude to stick out your tongue but I don’t think it is as bad
as when you put your elbows on the table because that gives Mom the stress.

Thank you for wrapping your tooth so nicely in the Queen-sized blanket. It took me a
really long time to find it which made me late for the other children. I would appreciate it if you
could use something smaller next time.
It is very nice of you to want to buy your dad a car. I have left you a Toonie. Tell him it
should be enough to get a Ford.
