Publisher's Summary

Freddy Thresher has a problem: a really, really, big problem. He's the only one in his class who hasn't lost a tooth! All of the other students in Mrs. Wushy's first grade have signed their names on the Big Tooth, and Freddy's determined to get his name on it, too. So when Max "The Meanie" Sellars calls Freddy a baby, Freddy decides he's going to lose that tooth one way or another, even if it means getting punched in the face at recess, and even bigger trouble, with Mom!


Audible Editor Reviews

This charming story by former elementary school teacher Abby Klein features plenty of vivid images and laugh-out-loud moments. First grader Freddy Thresher is the only one in his class who hasn't lost a tooth, and he's feeling really left out. He comes up with a plan to lose one of his pearly whites, even if it means bodily injury. Performer Oliver Wyman narrates with inspired voices for both young and old, while the text itself teaches some great lessons about bullying, courage, and compassion.
