Description

Every afternoon, Uncle Farley takes a three-hour nap. And every afternoon, he pops his false teeth out of his mouth and into a glass of water. One day, Morgan decides she’ll steal them to show her friends. But while they’re on the wharf oohing and ahhing, Morgan accidentally drops Uncle Farley’s teeth into the ocean! She thinks they’re gone forever until she sees a fabulous fish...with a fabulous set of teeth in its mouth.

Morgan and her friends pool their resources to get the teeth back—Ian’s dad is a fisherman, Zakia’s mom is a dentist, Markee’s dad is a police officer—but the fabulous fish just won’t spit them out. Will Morgan be able wrangle Uncle Farley’s false teeth back before he wakes up? Originally published in 1998, this new edition features updated text and illustrations from the artist behind Canadian classics like The Paperbag Princess and Thomas’s Snowsuit.
