📖 Read Arthur’s Loose Tooth by Lillian Hoban

Read Arthur's Loose Tooth by Lillian Hoban (HarperCollins)
Arthur, afraid of pulling his loose tooth, and his little sister, Violet, learn something about being brave in the seventh adventure about two favorite chimps.
Not as solid as the Francis series, though this did have one or two nice moments. The illustrations were a bit too simplistic and much less realistic than they could have been.

How does a kid with only one tooth manage to loose it before he has more?!

I’m not sure which book I liked less, this or The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist. Though that one did have an entertaining set of pages which included an instrument that was colloquially called the “Yankers!”

Favorite quote:
“What!” said Arthur. “I am not scared to go upstairs in the dark!”
“I know,” said the baby-sitter. “But sometimes I think you are scared of a little soap and water.”

Read Arthur's Birthday Party by Lillian Hoban (HarperCollins)
Arthur is having a gymnastics party for his birthday, with prizes for balancing, tumbling, and rope climbing. Arthur is sure that he will win the prize for best all--around gymnast. But his little sister, Violet, and her friend Wilma have been practicing-and they may have a surprise in store....
Simple to read and a vaguely interesting plot. Not as good as the Francis series though. Nothing funny here.
