Ellie and the Fairy Door

After losing her very first tooth, Ellie places it beneath her pillow. But that night, Ellie soon finds a real fairy door in her bedroom, and meets Sean the leprechaun, who has had his crock of gold stolen. Ellie is suddenly shrunken down and whooshed into fairyland, where she finds Tooth Fairy Willow and her magical house. The trio embark on an adventure to recover the crock of gold from the thieving magpie, and it is only with Ellie’s help and kindness that the gold can be retrieved.

Each page is simply inviting, with double-page spreads that are teeming with nature and its treasures, complete with rich scenes of life and habitat. Ellie and the Fairy Door is a wonderful and magical story any little one could fall in love with, made easy through warm and charming illustrations that bring to life Tooth Fairy Willows house, the enchanting forests, and the captivating wildlife that they meet.
