Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

This slim, paper-over-board volume by the creators of The Paper Bag Princess and Alligator Baby gives some loose-tooth cliches a slapstick spin. When Andrew's wobbly, hurting tooth prevents him from eating an apple, his mother yanks at it futilely with both hands. His father then puts his foot on the boy's nose and attempts to pull it with pliers. However, this effort is no more successful than the dentist's endeavor to tie one end of a rope to the tooth and the other to his car (which falls apart when he drives away), or the tooth fairy's attempted extraction with a hammer. A vigorous sneeze (brought on by his best friend's idea that Andrew inhale pepper) finally does the trick, sending the tooth flying through the air, "all the way across town." Martchenko's watercolor cartoons embellish the tale's hyperbole with funky touches: wearing beads and sandals, the ponytailed dentist arrives in a car boasting a giant rooftop tooth; and the leather-clad, motorcycle-riding tooth fairy sports a necklace studded with specimens of her trade. Although it's all quite inane, Munsch fans will be thoroughly entertained. Ages 3-6.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3AOnce again, Munsch and Martchenko have produced a fun-to-read story with just the kind of exaggerated humor and pictures that appeal to youngsters. Andrew has a loose tooth. He wants to eat an apple but it hurts. Both of his parents, the dentist, and even a motorcycle-riding Tooth Fairy try some pretty drastic measures to help him get rid of the stubborn tooth, but with no success. When there seems to be no solution, some pepper takes care of the problem by causing a big sneeze. The brightly colored, full-page cartoons and the repetitive language make this a good read-aloud. Andrew's repeated "YEEE-OW!" will get listeners involved from the first page, and young readers will fall quickly into the easy-to-follow story pattern. A whopper, whether it is shared one-on-one or with a group.AMarty Abbott Goodman, L.J. Bell Elementary School, Rockingham, NC

5.0 out of 5 stars My kids love this book! Dec 1 2003
Robert Munsch's amusing look at a boy's trouble with a loose tooth is a big favorite at our house. While it begins with a real situation any child with a loose tooth can understand (I can't eat my apple!), the story gets more and more ridiculous. Most kids know that while a trip to the dentist might be scary, no dentist is going to tie his tooth to a car and drive away. (And even if one did, the results are just hysterical.)
My kids also love Michael Martchenko's detailed and funny illustrations, from the little sister on the toy telephone calling the dentist (while both parents do so on two different phones), to the tooth fairy on the heavily chromed motorcycle.
Kids enjoy funny stories, especially about growing-up issues like losing a tooth. I haven't met a kid yet who didn't enjoy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny! July 27 2000
By A Customer
I'm not among the legion of fans of this author's book, "Love You Forever" (but that's another review.) This book, however, is delightful -- it really appeals to the sense of humor of a five-year-old (like my son). After reading it, he's eager to have a loose tooth. As a bonus for us, it contains lots of "sh" and "th" words, which we need to practice for his speech therapy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eternal kid-pleaser!!!!!! Oct. 9 2003
By Mermama
I have not read this book to or with a child yet who did not love it. It's offbeat humor may not be for everyone, but it is terribly clever and reading it over again always uncovers yet another laugh. The artistic humor is just fantastic. My kids are not even losing teeth anymore, but they won't let this book go!

Robert Munsch does an excellent job of bringing humor to something that can be scary for children - losing a tooth. He makes the story very silly by introducing a few silly characters to help Andrew rid himself of his lose tooth.
