The frame story opens on a tempest-tossed night with the three Ormsby children Dinah, big brother Zeke and baby Rebecca Ruth huddling in a scrappy bungalow, supervised by older cousin Gage. With the trio in dire need of distraction, Gage spins a mesmerizing tale of What-the-Dickens, a tooth fairy hatched at twilight in a tin can.
It's hard to resist Gage's tale of What-the-Dickens, a filmy winged orphan who knows not what, or who, he is. He soon meets an array of curious creatures from a cacophonous rust-throated grisset to McCavity, a cat who prompts What-the-Dickens to explore the world beyond his tuna can.

And what a world it is! Each ensuing adventure including the breathtaking extraction of a tiger tooth sets What-the-Dickens on the path of learning about the secret lives of skibbereen. But it isn't until he happens upon Pepper, a pert girl skibberee, that he discovers more about their often dangerous tooth-gathering missions. As Gage's charges fall in and out of sleep, his fantastic tale continues.
Later, Gage injects himself as a character in the tooth fairy saga, prompting Dinah to wonder if the whole story is fact or stormy night fiction. Picture Information.

Moosie s Attic linderlegacy Search within store. Items On Sale. Thank you for choosing to buy an item from Moosie's Attic. All items are inspected before listing to confirm that there are no critical defects that would prevent its use. I personally photograph all items in order to insure that unlike other larger book vendors, you have more than a stock photo to view the condition.
I take on average at least 4 pictures in order to show the cover, spine, top, bottom and side pages as well as all 8 corners. Special defects, features or other attributes are noted in the description or photographed on a individual basis. The majority of the books I sell are used. They will sometimes have a name on the inside cover, or a stamp from a book store on the bottom or inside. If it has underlining or highlighting I make sure to note it in the description. Some older books will have dedications written in the front, I make sure to note this also.
It is not my intent to ever deceive a buyer on the condition of a book. If you have an issue with a book not being what you expected please contact me so I can make it right somehow. Shipping will occur within one working day from confirmation of payment.
