  About The Book

When Puddle's little cousin, Opal, comes to visit Woodcock Pocket, they discover that she has a loose tooth! After retrieving the tooth from the bottom of the pond she lost it in, Opal carefully places it under her pillow in the hopes that the tooth fairy will bring her a nice shiny quarter. Worried that the tooth fairy won't be able to find Woodcock Pocket, Puddle puts on a homemade costume so that Opal won't be disappointed. But will the real tooth fairy show up?

Losing a tooth is a landmark moment in a child's life. Holly Hobbie's adorable story about two friends caring for their cousin during this difficult time will surely be read with care each time a child loses a tooth.
