The Toothless Puppy is an excellent tale of sharing our differences and how each one of us are unique. Being different is the one thing that unites us all.

Saturday, May 20th @ 2:00pm

Show Description - Campbell the golden retriever is as happy as a dog can be. She has a caring family, an adventurous life, and a lot of great friends. But when she notices she is missing one of her teeth, Campbell becomes sad and worried. Where did the tooth go? What will everyone think of her now? Campbell leaves home and sets off in search of her missing tooth. Instead, she finds a wide range of friends as unique as she is, from a tailless sheepdog to a group of flightless penguins. As the animals show her the things that make them special, Campbell begins to realize that being different might not be so bad after all. "The Toothless Puppy: A Live Reading+Talk Back" is an interactive reading, where the authors will share their story, allowing YOU and other audience members to experience the page on the screen. Additionally, there will be a talk back after the reading, where the authors will go through their story-boarding process and what it was like to be self-published.
Ticket proceeds will be donated to Mary's Place!
