"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.
