Fang Challenged? Don't Let Fang Envy Stop You

Grow Your Own Pair . . . 

 . . . of Fangs, I mean.

It’s come to my attention that the term “Fang up!” is causing consternation.

i'M TOO SHY TO SHOW MY FANGS! And I've never been to a neighborhood library...

i'M TOO SHY TO SHOW MY FANGS! And I've never been to a neighborhood library...

LOTS OF FOLKS, it seems, are all excited about the Vampire Baby Free Books Giveaway. They are thrilled to share it, tweet it, like it on Facebook, but they can’t bring themselves to ENTER IT . . . 

Seems, along with all the other issues plaguing us, we’re having major FANG Trouble.  

The trouble with Fangs is:

Some don’t have fangs, as in there seems to be a flat out fang shortage.

Others have fangs, but . . . not Fangs long or sharp enough to mention.

Others are worried about what folks might say if they do flash their fangs and Vampire Up!   

Phooey I say! There are FREE books waiting to be scooped up! 40 hardback, full-color picture books, retail price about $16.95 + +  including, Dance, Y’all, Dance, One Day I Went Rambling, Your Daddy Was Just Like You!, Your Mommy Was Just Like You!, Dad & Pop. & Not Norman

And, of course, Vampire Baby

Don’t let Fang issues keep you from playing.

Or, as Will Shakespeare so would have said, had he written 13th Night as planned:

Some are born fanged, some achieve fangs, and some have fangs thrust upon them.
— Will Shakespeare so would have said it—if he’d been writing 13th Night

In the interest of fairness I’d like to level the contest-playing field by offering several solutions to this FANG Trouble. Facts first, Joe Friday:

SOME ARE BORN FANGED:

I have it on GOOD AUTHORITY: Baby teeth appear in any order (so don't be scared . . . ). Most times a baby’s bottom two front teeth appear first. Sometimes, it’s the top two incisors. Rarely, molars break through first. And occasionally, a baby sprouts FANGS!

That’s human babies! Other species are a whole different, er . . .  animal.

SOME ACHIEVE FANGS:

“If you can find a dentist who'll do it, you can have your front teeth shortened and your canines filed.

"File incisors to a point and file down your other front teeth so the fangs will be more prominent."

Yank Your Incisors: Definitely NOT recommended but…

Finally...5 years and 12 revisions and I-don't-even-want-to-try-to-count how many Vampire movies, books, blogs after that fabulous title popped into my head Vampire Baby has arrived! Thanks to all of you who laughed when I said the title.) Paul Meisel's art makes it! Available from Candlewick Press and booksellers everywhere!

Here's the blurb:

It happens overnight: "little sister Tootie goes from cuddly, ga-ga-goo-goo, I-want-my-ba-ba baby to...vampire baby." Now she’s sinking her pointy fangs into everything -- furniture, toys, and especially her big brother ("Youch, Tootie! No bite!"). Mom insists that it’s just a phase, but Tootie’s brother knows better. Just look at her hairline! Or the fact that all her favorite foods are bloodred! With perfect comic timing, Kelly Bennett and Paul Meisel give a fresh slant to the new-baby story, proving that even monstrous little arrivals have a funny way of staking their siblings’ affections.

When Tootie gets her first teeth, it’s clear to her big brother that she’s no ordinary baby. But how to convince Mom and Dad?

Warning: VAMPIRE BABY is coming . . .

Tootie has fangs! And she knows how to use them...
