School Library JournalPreS-Gr 1 An appealing easy-reader that offers a twist on a familiar story. A shaggy-haired puppy has a loose tooth and intends to leave it under his pillow for the Tooth Fairy when it falls out. Predictably, he swallows it while eating. The twist comes when he resolves his problem by taking a Polaroid snapshot of his smile and leaving the proof for the Tooth Fairy. Without being didactic, this story presents a situation and a solution for what every child worries about while passing through this stage of life. The gentle watercolors in muted tones emphasize the adorable dog's changing emotions throughout and, in the end, show his satisfied smile. Kit Vaughan, J. B.
