The Puppy Tooth Fairy Raye Lankford Martha is hit with a stark realization: the Tooth Fairy doesn’t like dogs. Determined to right a wrong, Martha and Skits bound boldly into the night as the Puppy Tooth Fairies. The problem is puppies lose a lot of teeth. So do kittens and elephants and…*gulp*…whales?
