Overview

“A perfectly silly story with a whopping visual punchline sure to delight young listeners and readers.” –Kirkus

"Help, I've been robbed!
It'sth a disthasthter!"

Grandpa's teeth, handmade by the finest Swiss craftsman, are gone—stolen from his bedside table! Grandpa suspects anyone who doesn't smile widely enough to prove that their teeth are their own.

Soon everyone in town is smiling—all the time—and their ghastly grins are frightening the tourists away. Can the culprit be caught before the whole town cracks up?

Popular Australion cartoonist Rod Clement, illustrator of Edward the Emu and Edwina the Emu by Sheena Knowles, has created a rollicking whodunit with a surprise ending that will have readers grinning from ear to ear.

Grandpa's Teeth is a California Young Reader Medal Masterlist title, and it's a proven giggle producer.

This is a cute realistic fiction book that talks about a grandpa losing his teeth and the struggle that his family and the town go to to try and find them. The town ends up pitching in a dollar or two to get him some new teeth and in that we learn a good lesson about working together. This story helps people to empathize with other people as the grandpa is very sad when he loses his teeth and it has a good message as the townspeople help solve his problem. Media: pen and ink
