Their first task was to illustrate the 2009 tooth fairy from the following description:

"The Tooth Fairy has long, blonde curly hair and two silver gossamer wings on her back.She wears a shimmering pink dress with sparkling stars on it and silver ballet slipper shoes. Her pink, tooth-shaped sack carries all the teeth she collects.Her magic wand has pink and silver streamers on it and a star that glows to help her see in the dark. She always smiles because she loves children!"
