At school, Francine loses her tooth and jumps up and down because she is excited. Mr. Marco asks the class who has lost a tooth. All of the kids except Arthur have lost a tooth and they make fun of him. His mom says his tooth will come out when it's the right time. Arthur tells his dad to make corn and peanut brittle so he can bite into them and lose his tooth. At the end of the story, Francine pushes Arthur and he falls down and loses a tooth. Nobody teases him anymore.
Our favorite part of the story is when Arthur spends most of the time in the bathroom because it was funny. Our least favorite character is Francine because she was teasing Arthur since he hadn't lost a tooth yet. This story relates to our lives because we have lost teeth too. The pictures help tell what's going on.
We think other people should read this story because there are many people out there who haven't lost any teeth.
