The Lovereading4Kids comment

A touching story which will entertain all those anxious about losing their front teeth! Little Beaver is very worried when his front tooth becomes wobbly. How will he be able to chew bark? And, if he can’t chew bark, how will he know he really is a beaver? Could he be a muskrat? Or a woodchuck? Or a porcupine? Luckily Little Beaver takes advice from Wise Old Beaver and soon leans that he can be a beaver after all.

There is a Nature Note in the book in which the author and illustrator asks the reader to grant them poetic licence for Little Beaver's adventure for in real life beavers don't lose teeth unlike most other animals!!

Synopsis

Little Beaver and the Big Front Tooth by Amy MacDonald

Little Beaver is feeling scared...his big front tooth is loose and feels like it might fall out! How can he be a beaver without his big front tooth? Worried that he may not even be a beaver at all, Little Beaver heads off in search of his true identity, meeting LOTS of different animals along the way.

This is the hugely anticipated follow-up to Little Beaver and the Echo, which is published in over 20 languages around the world and has won awards in the Netherlands, Great Britain and the US. This sweet, gentle tale is complemented, once more, by Fox-Davies' softly glowing landscapes and winsome furry characters.

Things you didn't know about Amy Macdonald

1. I will do almost anything for chocolate.

2. I love all animals. When I was little, I once saved a frog from being swallowed by a snake. I also raised a family of baby mice that had made a nest in my sleeping bag.

3. I can whistle through my fingers and wiggle just one ear.

4. Most people don’t know that my real name is Margaret. No one has ever, ever called me that.

5. As a little girl I refused to hold my mother’s hand when crossing the street. I always insisted on “holding my own hand”.

6. I played ice hockey on a women’s college team – even though I didn’t go to that college. I just showed up at practice one day. I wore figure skates because I didn’t own any hockey skates.

7. In one of my picture books most of the characters are named after my favourite children’s book editors.

8. My favourite sound is the noise rain makes on the roof when you are falling asleep.

9. I have a Border Collie who is smarter than most people I know.

10. The thing I miss most about not living in England is having milk delivered to my door.
