What if you're first and best at everything — except losing your first tooth? Josie is the monkey-bars champion, the first one to read a whole book by herself, and the second-fastest runner in her class. But she's the worst at losing teeth — the only kid in her class who still has all her baby teeth!
One night, Josie finally feels a tooth wiggle, just a little, and she can't wait to show her best friend, Richard. But nothing makes the tooth fall out — not hanging upside down, chomping on an apple, or even pulling on the tooth with a string — until Josie trips and goes splat and the tooth is lost for good. Now what can she leave under her pillow for the tooth fairy? A sweet, relatable story about comparing yourself to others, losing teeth, and the value of good friends.
"A surprising gift reveals an understanding Tooth Fairy who boosts friendship over money. Mann’s rustic pencil-and-pastel illustrations so closely resemble a child’s drawings it’s as if Josie has chronicled her own story. The inclusion of the letters to and from the Tooth Fairy may very well inspire young writers.... Readers will feel assured that anxiety is short-lived and friendship endures." — Kirkus Reviews
