Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Jane, from Swimming Lessons, has her first wiggly tooth in this charming story. Initially fearful that she might need a cast or stitches, she is determined to keep the tooth in her mouth. Grandma comes to visit, and Jane is impressed that she takes her teeth out and her hair off. Jane watches carefully, "in case she takes something else off, like a leg or a head." Jane and her mother and grandmother go to a toy store, where Jane is given ten dollars to use as she chooses. The art set she selects is more expensive than that; she is three dollars and fifty cents short. Of course, at the end of the story, the tooth fairy makes up the deficit, and we have a happy ending. This is an amusing story, wonderfully illustrated in scratchboard outlines that are colored digitally with Paintshop. The technique uses jagged lines throughout, giving a pinking shears effect, which makes everything look chaotic and alive in a very appealing way. 2000, Rising Moon,
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-After making her debut as a reluctant athlete in Swimming Lessons (Rising Moon, 1998), the independent-minded Jane returns for another adventure. When she gets her first loose tooth, her parents are excited, but she does not want to part with it. Growing a new one sounds like a bother so she is determined to keep the one she has, even if it wiggles. When a boy at school tells her about the tooth fairy taking teeth and leaving money, Jane believes that this nocturnal caller is pulling on her tooth to make it wobble even more. She clamps her mouth shut at night and hopes the fairy will take her visiting Grandma's dentures instead. Despite all of her efforts, the girl's tooth pops out, much to her family's delight. She decides to exact a price for her treasured tooth equal to the additional amount needed to purchase a highly desirable art set. Her demands are met and all ends well. Jay has created an authentic voice for her charming, slightly neurotic heroine. The artwork was done with a combination of traditional scratchboard technique and digital painting in Photoshop. The boldly outlined, angular, trendy-looking illustrations are well matched to Jane's quirky personality. Engaging page layouts also enhance the story's zany edge. Children will eagerly await future installments about Jane's growing pains.-Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Jay's (Swimming Lessons, 1998) sassy Jane returns, coping with a familiar childhood dilemma with her usual verve. Unable to fathom why her parents and grandmother are so excited about her first loose tooth, Jane is appalled by their tales of a tooth fairy who retrieves children's teeth left under their pillows. Harboring nostalgic feelings for her wayward tooth, Jane endeavors to prevent it from falling out, attempting to brush it until it's stronger. Alas, all the extra brushing hastens the inevitable outcome. However, Jane relinquishes her tooth to the tooth fairy with plenty of panache, gussying it up with paint and glitter. Jay's writing is snappy and gleefully irreverent, with Jane providing a running commentary on everything from Grandma's false teeth (after observing Grandma removing her wig and dentures, Jane keeps a wary eye on her to make sure she doesn't remove any other appendages) to the nefarious activities of the tooth fairy. "If I went around pulling out people's teeth, I would probably have to go to jail. I know this because I tried pulling out Jimmy's tooth during naptime, and I had to sit in the corner all through recess." The wry humor is an engaging blend of child-like literalness coupled with a keen sense of the absurd, allowing readers to deflate their anxiety over this milestone with laughter. Osiecki's saw-toothed illustrations adeptly capture Jane's persona; the pigtailed Jane, sporting snazzy spectacles, is as delightfully unique in the pictures as she is in the story. Lettering is set in Fontesque and small pictures are plunked into the text giving that a rollicking look as well. A super combination.(Picturebook. 5-8)
