Fairy Rings and Monstrous Things

Tooth Fairy I

The folklore states that when children lose one of their baby teeth, they should place it underneath their pillow and the tooth fairy will visit while they sleep, replacing the lost tooth with a small payment.  The only problem is that real tooth fairies do not wait for the milk teeth to fall out and collect them from sleeping victims as they please.

The photographed fairy was disturbed while building a nest in an old book.
