Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Where could grandpa's false teeth have gone? The family hunts everywhere, and even the police are called in to help. The entire town goes on the defensive, with everyone smiling to prove that they are not the teethnappers. It's all for naught and the town finally takes up a collection so that grandpa can order new teeth. It isn't until the very end that readers discover the real culprit in this toothsome tale.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3Grandpa's very expensive, custom-made false teeth have been stolen. The police are alerted and an artist's rendering of the missing choppers is posted as "wanted" all over town. Even though "Unsolved Crimes" broadcasts a reenactment on television and dentures are found in the mailbox, none are the missing ones. Grandpa suspects everyone, so townsfolk smile widely to show that their teeth are their own. Finally, people of the town rally to Grandpa's cause and kick in to replace his teeth. Now everyone is grinning, including Grandpa's always dour dog, Gump, who smiles a very "familiar" smile. The text reinforces the humor in the pictures, displaying Grandpa's distinct toothless talk, "It'sth much more stherious. It'sth my teeththey've been sthtolen." Clement's slightly exaggerated characters are perfectly suited to this toothy tale. Pictures extend the text as evidenced in the search of Grandpa's messy room where everything from apple cores to bugs are found, but not teeth. Grandpa's Teeth is a hoot.Susan M. Moore, Louisville Free Public Library, KY
