Fairy cleans up for Studio

Fairy cleans up for Studio

Studio Press has acquired world, all-language rights to Dave and the Tooth Fairy by former Tamarind Books publisher Verna Wilkins.

The kids’ book broke new ground when it was released by Tamarind 25 years ago because it featured non-white characters, including tooth fairy Afiya. It will be redrawn and updated for its relaunch.

Bonnier’s Natalie Jerome, who acquired the title, said the book would help with the list’s goal of “normalising diversity within our industry”.
