The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Lovereading4Kids 'Debut of the Year 2011' selection.

3+. Billy hates toothbrushes. He’s tried all kinds but refuses to use any of them! But then he loses a tooth and the tooth fairy leaves him something to make sure the rest of his teeth are never so dirty! How Billy comes to love his tooth sparkler – and to clean his teeth – is vividly captured in stylish, vibrant illustrations.

Synopsis

The Boy Who Hated Toothbrushes by Zehra Hicks

Billy never cleans his teeth - not when there's so much else to do. But Billy's never seen a Funtastic Toothsparkler before. There are so many cool things he can do with it! But the big question is ...will one of them be brushing his teeth?
