All is Not Lost!

Hello Stupendous Supporters!

You all deserve the biggest thank you EVER!  Your encouragement has helped me gain some amazing attention and even though our Kickstarter campaignt wasn't successful (meaning nobody will be charged), I have three GREAT pieces of news to share with you!  That, to me, is successful! 

First, an amazing supporter of this project turned me onto the extraordinary publishing company, Sunny Day Publishing (  Their tagline, "A Health Education Company", couldn't be more in line with the Toothpaste Avenger's goal: health through education and, at that, ORAL HEALTH through education!  Nathan and I are eagerly awaiting their decision on whether or not they will publish the Cavity Creatures.  Yay!

Second, during the campaign, Delta Dental of New Jersey came across this project and wondered what my long-term goals are with the book.  In a nutshell, I explained to them I will still be publishing the book but all orders will be at our retail price (discounted a certain percentage for bulk orders).  Elated to hear this, Delta Dental of New Jersey is looking into how "The Invasion of the Cavity Creatures" can be woven into their foundation that works specifically on increasing the awareness of the benefits of oral health in children!  This is just up our alley, right?!  They already have some of the Cavity Creatures promotional items ready to go up on their Kid's Club website once they get the green light from the higher-ups on their end.  Hopefully they want the book, too!

Lastly, the book and all accompanying goodies are available for sale on this website!  That's right, just head over to the store, click on the items you want, select your shipping method, and voila!  You will soon have your goodies in hand.  

Thank you, again, for all of your support and encouragement - it means the world to me, the Toothpaste Avenger, Bobby Brusher, Penelope Picker, X-Ray, and those icky blobs! 



Two simple tricks to see if your child is telling the truth about their hygiene.

I’m sure most of you have told your kiddos to brush their teeth and wash their hands and simply left it at that. They should listen to you. They're your kids, right? Surely they listen to everything you say. I'll be the first to admit, I took my student's word for granted. I ran into this countless times in my classroom and that is precisely why I implemented two policies: The soap check and breath test! Sounds gross, but these two things accomplished a lot in our tiny classroom.

The Review is in!

That's right, we have been officially reviewed!  By one dentist.  By one dentist!!  EEEEK!  Super exciting and here's what she had to say:

"A wonderfully creative dental adventure story great for children of all ages!  This entertaining book stresses the importance of good oral hygiene to kids in a fun and exciting way.  A must-read, especially for those lacking motivation to brush and floss!"
