There are just some books out there that appeal to you no matter what your age is. My Milk Toof is one of those books. A quick synposis:
When two baby teeth came knocking at her door, artist Inhae Lee did what anyone would do: she invited them to live with her and started photographing their hilarious, miniature antics. The resulting blog phenomenon has captivated legions of devoted fans with its refreshingly sweet sentiment and hip appeal. Featuring brand-new stories alongside classic adventures, My Milk Toof follows two baby teeth named ickle and Lardee as they navigate the pleasures and perils of being very small in a very big world. With perfect comedic timing, the photographic tales in this book explore the world from the tiny perspective of a baby tooth (or milk toof), from taking a bath to exploring the outside world. Showcasing the intricate handcrafted universe that Lee has created, My Milk Toof has a quirky appeal that speaks to all ages. Whether they’re baking a cake or spending a day at the pool, these two little guys are achingly sweet but without the cavities.
This book is funny. My kids giggle as they turn each page. The story itself is easy enough for my seven year old. However, the pictures themselves tell the story. My 3 year old doesn’t need to be able to read to know what’s going on. As an adult, I think this book is cute and pretty funny too. My daughter loves My Milk Toof so much that she brought it to school to show her teacher! I’ll be honest — I hope there are few more Ickle and Lardee books, because we loves this one so much!
