I like the book. The main character is Madlenka. She wants to tell everyone that her tooth is wiggly. One of the characters is Mr. Ciao and he is from Italy. He works as an ice cream man. And Madlenka tells him, "My tooth is wiggly!" The girl imagines that she goes around the world telling everyone her tooth is wiggly. She finds people from all around the world in her neighborhood.

I picked this book because I think Madlenka is like me because when I was six years old my tooth was wiggly. I told my friend Nealy my tooth was wiggly. I feel like I'm traveling with her. I think the pictures are cool.

I know that my best friend named Isabella would like to read this book because she would like the pictures, and she would like the cover.
