Description

Vera's back and on the run again-this time from the dentist!-in this playful addition to an ever-charming series.

"Open, please," said Dr. Knoll.

Vera opened her mouth again. Suddenly she saw a whirring machine on a long handle coming closer and closer. It sputtered pink flecks.

Vera shut her mouth tightly.

When Vera goes to the dentist for a checkup, she wears her favorite cowgirl skirt since it always makes her feel brave. But not even her special skirt prepares her for the whir of the tooth-cleaning machine, and Vera's off and running before Dr. Knoll knows what's happened!

A trip to the dentist can often be scary for young children. With charm and subtlety, Vera Rosenberry takes the fear out of this new experience and proves that a little reassurance goes a long way.
