In "Arthur's Tooth", by Marc Brown, Arthur watches all his friends get visits from the tooth fairy, while his own loose baby tooth just will not fall out!
Most kids know the frustration that comes with that stubborn baby tooth that just won’t fall out! In Arthur’s Tooth, by Marc Brown, everyone’s favourite aardvark Arthur suffers through watching as all his friends’ baby teeth fall out while his remains stubbornly in place.
No matter what he tries, from steak and corn on the cob, to peanut brittle and increasingly desperate measures, his baby tooth just refuses to budge.
Meanwhile, more and more of his friends are proudly showing off their gap-toothed smiles, and Muffy even brings a whole jar of teeth in for show and tell (worth $2 each from the tooth fairy).
