    1. This is a silly and cute and very funny story, and the illustrations are wonderful, and also equally amusing.I like the wackiness and the heartwarming qualities of this story too. Love the dog!!! Love grandpa and the other varied characters.I thought I knew what was coming, could see it a million miles away, but as a young child I think the ending would have come as a surprise to me, and then I’d have wanted to read the story again and again. Knowing the ending at the beginning did not at all [...]

    2. In celebration of Grandparent's Day, the Picture-Book Club in the Children's Books group here at decided that September's theme would be about Grandparents. This book was selected as one of the books we'll discuss this month. It's a fun read, with lots of subtle (and not-so-subtle) humor regarding the theft of a set of dentures. I loved the illustrations - they had a slightly exaggerated, almost too-real quality that I normally associate with the work of C.F. Payne. The narrative was fun to rea [...]

    4. I thought this was a pretty uneventful story which made it boring in my opinion. The story takes the reader through as the police try to find Grandpa’s missing teeth. I thought that the plot was drawn out too long and could have been shorter. The pictures were pretty good which helped to make the story a little more interesting. I think that students would find the story too long and not want to take the time to really read the story. In the classroom, I could use the book as a read aloud as I [...]

    5. I thought this one was kinda strange at the same time kinda humorous. Grandpa lost his teeth. Calling the cops & wanted posters for missing teeth? Silly. I didn't enjoy the idea that a place where people smile all the time is scary. In Hawaii we smile quite often, I smile a lot too. I think that is one reason people come here. Part of the book made me think of my grandma who is just starting bad dementia and wondered if this Grandpa was too. Dementia makes me sadI did enjoy finding out where [...]

    6. The kids liked this one quite a bit. They both cracked up at the denouement, and I found it interesting watching my niece watch me read Grandpa's toothless lisp. Listening to adults read language that is meant to have a particular sound is one way that kids learn to read with voice and expression, so this was a great book for the kids to listen to.
