Stella has a loose tooth! She hopes her magic glasses will let her meet the Tooth Fairy. But Stella meets Piper, a tooth bandit Night Sprite, instead. Piper rides a glittery scooter and she's sneaky--she swipes the shiny coins the Tooth Fairy leaves behind. Stella has to find a way to keep her own coin safe from Piper! Will she make a magical new friend, too?
