This is a one-of-a-kind fairy. No gauzy dresses or flowing tresses for her. No delicate wand with a sparkly tip. She rides a Harley and brandishes a wand of leather. Her hair flies behind her in long braids. Her job is to look after the magical need of the children on the street. And no child needs to worry when she is around!

Right now the trouble lies with Victoria and her loose tooth. When Victoria's curmudgeonly father refuses to believe that the tooth fairy will come to trade a coin for his daughter's tooth, the one-of-a-kind fairy rides in to teach him a lesson he will not soon forget.
