Madlenka/ by Peter Sis
A story about a young girl who is happy to share her "loose tooth" experience with all the neighborhood where she lives. "Hey, everyone... my tooth is loose!" - she proudly announces.
Mdlenka then shares her joy with Mr. Gaston, the French baker; Mr. Eduardi, the greencgrocer; Mrs Kham who is from Asia ( Asia is so big! Could the author be more specific?) and other people who know Madlenka.
The story is beautifully illustrated, with many details to notice only after reading the book for several times. Cut-out windows invite children to peek into the world of Madlenka's friends filled with magic and the excitement of far-off lands.
