Synopsis

Lollipop and Grandpa and the Wobbly Tooth by Penelope Harper

Grandpa has really lost the plot this time...Lollipop has her first wobbly tooth: a wibbly-wobbly, bibbly-bobbly tooth that's coming loose. It wibbles and wobbles, but it just won't come out. Luckily, Grandpa has come up with several ingenious ideas for sorting out wobbly teeth. But when his plans involve a tug-of-war match, a grumpy woodpecker and a hoovering elephant, even Lollipop has to admit that Grandpa might have lost the plot this time...REVIEWS: I love this series for its evocation of the wonderful relationship that can exist between grandfather and grandchild. If you are a grandparent, get a copy and share it with your grandchild. When Lollipop finds her first wobbly tooth, mischievous Grandpa is full of good ideas to help get it out...a tug-of-war, a woodpacker and an elephant. What is Grandpa thinking of? Great fun and Cate James' illustrations depict the relationship beautifully. -- PARENTS IN TOUCH. Cate James' cartoon illustrations...are perfect for this light-hearted look at tooth worries, and the view of the dentist's hairy nose as he examines Lollipop will amuse children.There is a lot of differentiated text for emphasis, and some sound effects, and this will be great fun to read aloud. -- THE SCHOOL LIBRARIAN

About the Author

Penelope Harper

Penelope Harper is a freelance writer and editor, and a former radio presenter and school librarian. The Lollipop and Grandpa series are her first children’s books, inspired by her relationship with her own grandfather.

Penelope read American Studies at Hull University and then lived in Seattle for a year. She did a postgrad diploma in broadcast journalism at Falmouth in Cornwall and became a radio journalist working as a breakfast show presenter for Mix96 in Aylesbury for many years; highlights of her journalism career include wing-walking and being sawn in half live on air. She left the UK twice for Australia, the first time taking up a temporary contract in New South Wales to broadcast from a tin shed. Returning to the UK she realised that her heart wasn’t in journalism any more and decided to take a chance and start writing about her childhood adventures with her Grandpa.
