Nevertheless, it all worked well together. It didn't feel as though it was written for children especially down to some of the racial irony that was used within the text. Unfortunately, the racial problems here aren't confined to the black-white axis, as the scene in which Tallulah summons her top aides depicts an entire table of black women, save the aforementioned t-shirt-wearing Tom. I was pregnant with my third son, and Noah came home from school with his tooth in hand. What's a Tooth Fairy to do when there's no tooth to take?
