Josie's Lost Tooth, with Jennifer Mann and author Toni Yuly

 

What a fun celebration we'll have when Bainbridge Island author Jennifer Mann visits to read and discuss her new book, Josie's Lost Tooth! She'll be joined by Bremerton author Toni Yuly, with her great preschool books. They will be at Eagle Harbor Books on Sunday, January 20, 2019 at 3 p.m.

Josie is the monkey-bars champion, the first one to read a whole book by herself, and the second-fastest runner in her class. But she's the worst at losing teeth --the only kid in her class who still has all her baby teeth! One night, Josie finally feels a tooth wiggle, just a little, and she can't wait to show her best friend, Richard. But nothing makes the tooth fall out -- not hanging upside down, chomping on an apple, or even pulling on the tooth with a string -- until Josie trips and goes splat and the tooth is lost for good. Now what can she leave under her pillow for the tooth fairy?

Mann's rustic pencil-and-pastel illustrations so closely resemble a child's drawings it's as if Josie has chronicled her own story. The inclusion of the letters to and from the Tooth Fairy may very well inspire young writers. The realistic dialogue, effective use of italics, and simple, kidlike vocabulary work well with the illustrations to create a satisfying tale on a familiar theme centered on friendship, play, and imagination...Readers will feel assured that anxiety is short-lived and friendship endures.
