Bill was a dog with a toothache. In drawings suggestive of Bemelmans-reproduced in line and flat yellow and black, the effect is of gay pictures for a spirited rhymed text. Bill, accompanied by the whole farmyard and some humans as well, goes to the dentist and finds that there ""was nothing to it"". The tooth, proudly displayed on a ribbon is the hero's mark. Attractive merchandise, if you can keep it clean!
