Sasha and the Wiggly Tooth

Sasha and the Wiggly Tooth


Written by Rhea Tregebov and Illustrated by Hélne Desputeaux


Sasha is the last of all of his friends to still have his baby teeth. So when one tooth becomes wiggly, he is excited, curious and also a little bit worried. After politely dismissing all efforts to help the tooth fall out, Sasha is astounded when he swallows the tooth accidentally. With humor and sensitivity, this beautifully illustrated picture book deals with a universal rite of passage experienced by all children.
