Do you have a little one who is loosing teeth? My Kindergartner has fallen in love with this book as his very first tooth has just recently become 'loose' ... but T.B. Wiggly is no ordinary tooth! He is 'on the loose' and wanted by the Tooth Fairy. Why is he wanted? Because he's "gonna leave a hole in you!"
Young children will be enthralled with Wiggly in this story, as they await their own loose teeth and the visits from the 'tooth fairy'. It features nice narration (although it does not highlight along with the voice-over) and a clear, easy-to-read font, along with simple page turn by arrows. No page guide is available, which would be a nice addition to a future update. There is also one small extra, a series of three coloring pages taken from images in the story, along with a blank page for creative drawing.
Overall this is a well-made digital app with simple settings and a fun story. It has very limited animation and interactivity, too, giving young readers just enough enhancement to keep them engaged without distracting from the plot. If you have a young one who is about to lose a tooth, this is a great book app. Recommended.

Sheriff Tex introduces this book ... telling readers about a "little fella you all know." He goes by the name T.B. Wiggly. T.B. stand for "Tooth Be" of course. As in Tooth Be Wiggly! And this T.B. Wiggly is elusive ... many have seen him however. Perhaps you've seen him in your own mouth or that of a 'pal'?
The thing that makes Wiggly different from your other teeth is that he's 'on the loose.' He's wiggly and ready to jump out of your mouth. "His days are numbered. His time is up," because he's 'wanted'! Why? Because he's about to leave a big hole in your mouth!
There is even a big reward for T.B. So if you find him in your mouth, wiggling about, let your parents know and they'll be sure to turn him over to the 'authorities' ... the Tooth Fairy!
