Synopsis

Agapanthus Hum is growing up, and she's finally lost her first tooth. But this is no ordinary lost tooth! Now her trademark humming has turned into a special sound that good little Daddy calls an angel hoot.

When Major Bark joins in howling, they take their show on the road to perform their "hoot-and-howl" act for the whole class, leaving everyone clapping and clamoring for lost teeth, too.

Agapanthus is whizzier and dizzier than ever in this irresistible book that will have its readers hooting and howling 'til the very end.
