 When Rosie, the appealing little rabbit introduced in Rosie Runs Away (1990), loses her first tooth, admires it so much that she's reluctant to part with it. Her friend Sid is definite: she has to give it to the tooth fairy. Fortunately, Dad is more tactful and accepting--as is the Tooth Fairy, who produces a chain so that Rosie can wear the tooth. The simple dialogue here is amusing and unusually perceptive; Sweet's pleasing watercolors reflect the warmth of this nice bunny family and extend the story's good humor.
