After years of reimbursing boys and girls for their lost teeth, Myrtle the Tooth Fairy has run out of money and is forced to seek financial aid from the king of the fairies, King Oberon, who is disinterested in her plight and no help at all.
Refusing to disappoint the children around the world and determined not to be a failure, Myrtle is forced to tackle her problem head on. No longer a svelte, flighty fairy, middle-aged Myrtle has experienced life and knows something about people’s natures and what makes them happy. She takes stock of her options.
Myrtle sees opportunity in the world of the toothless gutter trolls. She presents a mutually beneficial idea to the interested king of the trolls, King Hogard. Not mentioning her financial problem, she deals from a position of strength: the toothless trolls are unhappy; having teeth would make them happy; she can supply the troll kingdom with teeth for a fair price. That she has an endless supply of teeth remains her secret. Myrtle successfully refills her Tooth Fairy coffers with a self-perpetuating, fair financial solution.
