EVE BUNTING has written over two hundred books for children, including the Caldecott Medal-winning Smoky Night, illustrated by David Diaz, The Wall, Fly Away Home, and Train to Somewhere. She lives in Southern California.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2. This picture book centers around a T-ball team on which everyone has "lost one" except for the narrator. Therein lies the dilemma?the elusive "one" that has been lost. It turns out to be a tooth. To no surprise, a home run (and subsequent fall over a wayward dog) ensures that the narrator becomes one of the gang. This story struggles to be a mystery and fails at being a consolation book for children with their baby teeth intact. The average-quality watercolors do little to further the narrative; at one point, the illustrations even contradict the text with the narrator suddenly switching from playing offense to defense while scoring the winning home run. For a seven-year-old, losing a tooth is a rite of passage. Not losing a tooth can therefore be somewhat traumatic and create a sense of isolation in a child. Marc Brown's Arthur's Tooth (Little, Brown, 1985) addresses this issue more directly. Bunting's title lacks the superior quality usually associated with her books.?Christy Norris, Valley Cottage Library, NY
