One day,

When Monty Saury

Was playing in the park,

Right by the roundabout,

His first tooth fell out.

 

That very night,

The Tooth Fairy came,

To bring him a special game.

Suddenly Monty awoke with a fright,

He could hear a noise,

So he turned on the light.

The Tooth Fairy, who was very small,

Was stuck in a crack

In his bedroom wall.

“Please free me,”

The Tooth Fairy said,

“I have so many homes to inspect,

So many teeth to collect,

So many gifts to bring

To children large and small,

Oh, how did I ever

Get stuck in this wall?

 

Please help me down,

And I promise you,

I’ll fly you all over town.”

“I’m so sorry,”

Said Monty Saury,

“I’ll be happy to set you free,

But in return,

Please do something for me.

Grant me three wishes,

Like in the story

Of the magic fishes.”

 

“Certainly not three,”

Said the Tooth Fairy,

“Maybe one,

If it is something

That can be done.”

“OK,” Monty said,

 “What I really want to know,

Is what you do with our teeth —

Where do they go?

Where do you fly them to?

I want you to take me there with you.”

 

“Oh, that is something I could never do,”

Said the Tooth Fairy,

But Monty was as stubborn as a hungry kangaroo,

So finally she had to agree,

Or Monty might never set her free.

It was the middle of the night,

No one was in sight.

So they rode a skycycle

To the asteroid that looked like a chocolate kazoo,

And then they waited

For Spacebus number 22.

It took them past the

Milky Way (which was bright as day),

Then round Einstein’s bend,

To the very end,

Till they reached the planet people call,

“The farthest planet of them all.”

“This planet is our home,”

Said the Tooth Fairy.

“During the day,

We have the light

Of a billion stars,

All the way from here to Mars.

Our days are happy and bright,

But at night,

Our planet turns to face

The other way,

And there’s

Not a star in sight.

13

“So,

To give our planet light,

At night,

We collect teeth from many girls and boys,

We bring them money, games and toys,

And hang their teeth up very high,

All across our night time sky.”

 “The very best teeth are white as snow,

Those are the ones that really glow,

But when a tooth falls out, and it’s yellow or grey,

We sometimes have to throw it away.

(So children, please keep your teeth shiny and white,

So they can make our darkness bright!)”

Rain or shine,

At a quarter to nine,

Every morning and every night,

Eight fairies brush each tooth eight times,

To keep each one so clean and white.

 

Monty looked up to the skies,

What a sight!

A million teeth were shining bright,

In the middle of the night.

“Wow,”

Said the Tooth Fairy,

Tomorrow is almost now!”

So they took the shortcut home,

Flying past Mars and over the Moon,

And before you could say,

“How now, brown cow,”

Monty was back in his bed, in his room.

On the way,

The Tooth Fairy

Gave Monty

Some little fairy cakes.

Each bite makes

You forget

Where you have been,

Anything you did or said,

Before you went to bed.

When Monty awoke the next morning,

He heard the alarm clock ring.

He had flown to the stars,

But what did he remember? Not a thing!

25

Since then, every morning and night,

At a quarter to nine,

Monty brushes each tooth eight times,

To the left and to the right,

He keeps them very clean and white.

Once in a while, he looks at the stars,

Up there in the sky,

And smiles a big smile,

But doesn’t know why. 

27

To this very day,

Only you and I know,

Where the teeth really go.

And we won’t tell anyone,

About the million teeth,

Hanging high,

In the sky

Of the planet they call,

“The farthest planet of them all.”
