Anna and her friends are back, and this time Anna makes a bet with annoying class clown, Justin, that her loose tooth will come out before his does. If she wins, he will leave her, Sadie and Isabel alone, but if Justin wins, Anna must do a funky chicken dance in class! When the girls are discussing loose teeth, Anna realizes that Isabel still believes in the tooth fairy. Since she has an older brother, Chuck, she had been informed otherwise. She's not sure

I like this series a lot for transitional chapter book readers. It gives enough material to keep readers interested while being short enough makes it manageable for those working on their reading stamina.
And I love the illustrations by Meg Park.
Anna has a loose tooth and ends up making a bet with class clown Justin to see whose tooth will fall out first. Anna is hoping that her winning the bet will make her friend Isabel happy. See, Anna has spilled the beans about the tooth fairy to Isabel. O

I won this book on Goodreads.com. I actually enjoyed it. I thought it was well written for the elementary aged group. I liked the characters and the story line. Personally, I'd like to read the other series for myself.

My daughter is an elementary school teacher so I plan to donate it to her classroom to share with her students. I think they would enjoy it as well. Thanks, Anica.

Enjoyed the first 2 books of this series with my 8 year old. She was really looking forward to the 3rd but by the time we got to the end of the 2nd chapter she was in tears. The book just blurts out that the tooth fairy isn't real. And it's not just one sentence you can skip over. It makes a big deal about it and about worrying about kids thinking her friend that still believes is babyish.
The back of the book says it's for ages 6-10. Who puts that in a book for a 6 year old!
It's now only a matte

The Big-Mouth Bet is yet another strong title from the Anna, Banana series, though it involves Banana the dog even less than the previous books. The best thing about it is the way it handles the tooth fairy question. Some of the kids in the story believe, and some do not, and they each need to work out for themselves whether the tooth fairy is real or not, and whether they should try to convince their friends of the truth as they see it. There is enough evidence for both sides of the question th ...more

Anna is tired of Justin, the boy who sits behind her in class, bothering her and her friends, Sadie and Isabel. So when she overhears what she believes is Justin making fun of her and her loose tooth, she gets herself into hot water by making a bet over who is going to lose a tooth first. Anna with her friends' help does her best to get her tooth to come out, but what if Justin wins, what will she do then. Anna is a fun character and her interactions with her friends and teacher are refreshing. ...more

Anna finds herself standing up to the class clown in the third book of a charming illustrated chapter book series about the joys and challenges of elementary school friendships.

This series is always cute. In this particular book, both Anna and the class bully, Justin, have loose teeth. So, they make a bet about who will lose their tooth first. If Anna wins, Justin cannot bully her or her friends in any way, anymore. If Justin wins, Anna has to do the *Funky Chicken* dance in the middle of class.

Unfortunately, Anna loses the bet. But, the way she did her "punishment" was really tastefully done.

The Anna Banana books center on a third-grade girl named Anna who has an adorable little dog named Banana. Can I just say how much I LOVE the relationship between Anna and her dog? Mostly, however, the book is about friendship and the tricky navigation that comes with having two best friends at that age. I love this series and I can't wait to read book #4!
