Book's Blurb: "MY TOOTH IS LOOSE" is the fifth in a series of anatomical rhymes by children's author Bill Kirk. This memory-filled children's picture book tells an age-old story of every child's experience with the struggle over how best to pull that first tooth and the resulting joy when it actually happens. From the first wiggle until the tooth comes out, this picture book will bring back memories of when you pulled your first tooth. Through Bill Kirk's story in rhyme, you can share the experience with your own children as they begin to wonder if it is now their time.

Author's Bio: Kirk's writing has been influenced by his travels on five continents and the every day inspiration from his grandchildren. In addition to stories written in rhyme, Kirk writes fiction and satire for local and national publications. Kirk also wrote news and features for two Sacramento newspapers in the mid-1990s, The Suttertown News and The Old City Guardian. His children's stories have appeared in Boys' Quest, Fun For Kidz, Grandparents, Wee Ones and Saplings magazines. His poems have also been published by North Dakota Horizons, Absolute Write and The Baseball Almanac.

Kirk says his goal for his children's stories is to challenge the imagination of his readers, young and old, by exploring everyday life, simply and profoundly, and having fun in the process. Bill and his wife, Rita (a clinical psychologist), married since 1969, have made Sacramento their home since 1985.
