PreS-Gr. 1. Charley the crocodile feels a little nervous about his loose tooth when his mouse friend Maisy takes him to the dentist's office for his first visit. Maisy watches as Charley plays with the dentist's chair, opens his crocodilian mouth wide for Dr. Biteright, and hears the good news that his wobbly baby tooth will fall out and a new one will replace it. After an X-ray and a toothbrushing lesson, Charley waves good-bye. The story ends happily, and predictably, with a visit from the tooth fairy. Cousins' distinctive artwork, with its broad black lines and bold, flat colors, gives Maisy's fans reason enough to choose this brightly illustrated story. Leavened with a little visual humor and bolstered by a bit of information about tooth care, the book provides basic information about what happens at the dentist's office while offering reassurance to kids who are anxious about the experience.
