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?
