Best-selling author and illustrator team Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko have created another adventure about Andrew, his loose tooth, and the wacky ways friends and family try to pull it out!
"Yeow!" shouts Andrew. "Do something about my loose tooth. It hurts to much I can't eat my apple." Andrew's dad breaks his pliers trying to pull that tooth. Andrew's dentist can't pull it either--not even by tying a rope to Andrew's tooth and driving off in his car. The Tooth Fairy is a biker chick who says, "This is the first tooth ever that I can't pull out!"
Andrew's best friend, Louis, ends up saving the day with his special tooth-removing remedy--lots and lots of pepper up Andrew's nose!

Robert Munsch has written more than forty books, including Munsch More! A Robert Munsch Collection; Boo!; Smelly Socks; and
Lighthouse: A Story of Remembrance. He is Canada's best-selling author and his stories are beloved by children, parents, teachers and booksellers alike. Munsch says this story is based on a tale he first made up for his younger daughter.
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.
