School Library Journal - 04/01/2015 K-Gr 2—Meet Buck, a beaver whose giant, single tooth often gets in the way. The story unfolds in simple chapters as readers discover how his "tooth ruined everything!" Buck must find a way to search for something that will showcase his talent for the upcoming show, even as one disaster unfolds after another. Buck's friends try to help him devise a plan for getting rid of his tooth, but in the end he learns that sometimes our flaws can unlock hidden talents. The use of picture boxes and full page spreads provide a balanced composition that conveys the story well, though it is a bit busy at times. VERDICT The comical story will appeal to reluctant readers and those searching for what makes them shine.—Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MI - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
