Butler Bookshelf

This week on the Butler Bookshelf, we’re reimagining the Tooth Fairy myth in Tyler Clark Burke’s The Last Loose Tooth. In Burke’s new picture book, Lou is the last baby tooth in the mouth, crowded out by the adult teeth. When it’s his time to leave and join his fellow baby teeth friends, he connects with the Tooth Fairy so he can make his way to the Land of Teeth. For more great reads, check out the list below!
