Amy MacDonald’s books include Rachel Fister’s Blister, a Horn Book Fanfare title, and Quentin Fenton Herter III. She lives in Falmouth, Maine.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2?Cousin Ruth, a member of the wacky Fister clan introduced in Rachel Fister's Blister (Houghton, 1990), has lost a tooth. This everyday event throws the entire family into a riotous state, beginning with Ruth's aunt, who on the first page calls to her daughter "Rachel Fister, get your sister!" The characters' dash from page to page in search of the missing item is captured in Priceman's expressive watercolor illustrations. The text offers some very funny rhymes and jokes as different Fisters offer their personal solutions. Uncle Drew wants to stick on a new tooth with Super Glue, while cousin Keith wants to buy one at "Wal-Mart, Sears, or All-Mart." Finally, after days of searching, they decide to "ask the wisest to advise us" and fax the Queen for a solution. While they are trying to figure out her response, Cousin Ruth announces that she has found her tooth. A new one is growing under the old one. The colorful illustrations are entertaining and a perfect fit with the text. Each detail of the seemingly casual paintings has its own funny story to tell. This will be a great read-aloud, and it will also be enjoyed by beginning readers.?Anne Parker, Milton Public Library, MA
