Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Brown's forte is amusing and educating small fry on dealing with emergencies. Every boy and girl who has suffered the indignity of a stubborn baby tooth will feel for poor Arthur. Alone among his animals friends, he can't force his first tooth to fall. Neither steak, corn on the cob, peanut brittle nor any stern measure works on the thing. And here's Muffy with a whole jar of teeth at show-and-tell time; she's collected two dollars for each! Arthur mopes as his peers show off the gaps in their mouths. But in the end, he can smile as widely as the other kids. Thanks to an encounter with mean Francine, Arthur winds up with the tooth in his paw, ready for the fairy to trade something of value for it. Brightly colored cartoons of the active anthropomorphs illustrate the story, sure to be enjoyed as much as its nine predecessors.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3 Arthur faces the same kind of physical dilemma solved in Arthur's Eyes (1979) and Arthur's Nose (1976, both Atlantic: Little). This time he is the only one in his class who hasn't lost a baby tooth. (Arthur and the others are back in Mr. Marco's room, and they obviously are younger than they have been in recent adventures.) Despite his attempts to wiggle his front tooth loose, Arthur is unsuccessfuldespite suggestions from Buster, Sue Ellen, Binky Barnes and other familiar characters. A reassuring visit to the dentist followed by some accidental help from Francine solve the problem. Brown's droll humor helps reassure those who find themselves in Arthur's predicament. The illustrations are bright and lively, contributing to a book certain to please Arthur's many fans. Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, Minn.

Arthur's Tooth by Marc Brown is a book that any kid that's about to loose a tooth would enjoy. In this story Arthur is the last to loose a tooth. He feels behind and awkward for it. Everyone tries to help him loose it, but nothing ever succeeds. Finally, Francine, the bully of the group, that hassles Arthur for not loosing a tooth yet, jabs Arthur in the mouth, and knocks his tooth right out!
Arthur was my favorite character in this story. Arthur felt embarrassed that he had never lost a tooth before, and while everyone else was loosing their baby teeth, his was just getting loose. Poor, innocent Arthur. But at the end he shows them that he's no different. Read the book to find out the details!

Another great book from the Arthur series. The book is about Arthur, the last student in the class to lose his first baby tooth. Some of the other students in the class make fun of Arthur, because he still has all his baby teeth. Other students try to help Arthur's tooth fall out, but nothing works. Finally an accident causes Arthur to lose his tooth. This book teaches children to be patient and to help their friends. It also teaches them that everyone is different. I really like this book.

We are first grade students at the Anna Merritt Elementary School. Our teacher did a Marc Brown author study. She read Arthur's Tooth to us and we loved the book. Javeon and Cory liked the part when Arthur wanted to pull out his tooth with his hand. Nicholas and Jacob liked the part when Arthur lost his tooth. Marissa liked the part when Francine knocked Arthur's tooth out. We hope Marc Brown writes a lot more Arthur stories!

Arthur's Tooth Aug. 11 2014
By Olivia Stabler - Published on Amazon.com

I've loved the Artur book series since I was a child and I love sharing my old favorites with my daughter, including this one. What I love about the Arthur series is that they are so relateable to kids and teach an important lesson in each one. In Arthur's Tooth, Arthur is the last one in his class to lose a tooth and he's embarrassed as other kids make fun of him, so he tries everything he can, like eating tough foods and tying a string to his tooth and closing the door. Nothing works, but an accident on the playground helps him in that regard.

What I love about this story is the message behind it: that we are all different and changes happen in our bodies, including teeth at different times and that's ok because it's part of what makes you unique. This is a nicely illustrated book as well and highly recommended, especially for kids who are at the age of losing teeth!
Don't cry over lost teeth Oct. 5 2006
By Paper Pen - Published on Amazon.com
Even though it happens to everyone, losing a tooth for the first time can make kids a little nervous or apprehensive. "Arthur's Tooth" offers a funny story that helps make the loss of baby teeth less scary. It shows kids that they are not alone in losing their teeth, while also telling a story that is silly enough to keep kids engaged (I like The Brain's tooth odd-looking extraction contraption.)

The book even manages to pass a long a few educational bits, such as "Between the ages of four and seven, everyone begins to lose their deciduous, or baby, teeth."
