On the darkest night, amidst a terrifying storm, Dinah’s parents go missing. While anxious Dinah and her brother and sister worry and huddle for warmth, their cousin, Gage, tells them an unlikely story – that tooth fairies, known as skibbereen, are living in warring colonies right in the neighborhood. According to Gage, they actually put those teeth to good use. And he, Gage, has met them. Dinah is skeptical, but as the story unfolds and the storm rages on, she begins to believe.
By turns touching and comic, What-the-Dickens is a decidedly imaginative journey into myth that could only have been penned by that premier interpreter of the fairy-tale world, Gregory Maguire.
