Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Rosie rabbit wobbles a baby tooth out of her mouth, but refuses to give it up to the Tooth Fairy as everyone advises her to do. She is not at all sure that she wants to be the big rabbit that her father says she is becoming. The tooth "disappears," and Rosie and her father write a letter to the Tooth Fairy informing her that she'll have to wait for another one. A response tells of the Tooth Fairy's offer to put Rosie's tooth--if found--on a gold chain as a keepsake for the young bunny. The attractive watercolor illustrations are as softly reassuring as the comforting, bibliotherapeutic tale about the fear of growing up. Rosie is a clever, strong-minded heroine and her parents are both patient and caring. Although the tale is good for independent reading, it is also an excellent lap book for those children facing the same fears. --Yvonne Frey, Peoria Public Schools, IL

From Kirkus Reviews

When Rosie, the appealing little rabbit introduced in Rosie Runs Away (1990), loses her first tooth, admires it so much that she's reluctant to part with it. Her friend Sid is definite: she has to give it to the tooth fairy. Fortunately, Dad is more tactful and accepting--as is the Tooth Fairy, who produces a chain so that Rosie can wear the tooth. The simple dialogue here is amusing and unusually perceptive; Sweet's pleasing watercolors reflect the warmth of this nice bunny family and extend the story's good humor.

More About the Author

Maryann Macdonald is the author of 25 books for children. Her latest is "Odette's Secrets," is published by Bloomsbury. A starred review in Kirkus states: "...this fictionalized history of a Jewish child surviving the Nazi occupation of France uses an elegant simplicity of language" and "...makes an ideal Holocaust introduction...."

Maryann's love of books and reading began when she was growing up in a family of ten outside Detroit. She lived in Europe for many years, where she discovered the touching story of Odette Meyers' childhood in her memoir, "Doors to Madame Marie."

Maryann now lives in New York City, a great place for stumbling upon the unexpected.

The charming story of Rosie's first loose tooth is perfectly married with marvellously executed illustrations. Very true-to-life tale. Illustrations full of character. Highly recommend!
