Trevor's Wiggly-Wobbly Tooth

Lester L. Laminack

Trevor, the only one in his class not yet a member of the Missing Tooth Club, finally has a wiggly tooth. But how exactly can he pull it out?

The time has finally come for one of Trevor's teeth to fall out, and he's never been more excited! Each day he proudly shows his friends how it wiggles more and more.

But each friend in turn cautions him about the scary ways a loose tooth can be pulled out--from fingers to string to pliers. Trevor wants his tooth to come out, but he doesn't want someone to yank it out. When Grandma Sally shows his class how to make old-fashioned taffy, Trevor learns there are also fun ways to pull a tooth!

With a delightful twist at the end, Lester L. Laminack's humorous story captures the anxious joy that each child experiences with his or her first loose tooth. Kathi Gary McCord's whimsical illustrations bring Trevor and his classmates to life.
