THE TOOTH-FAIRY RAT

WHEN A LITTLE CHILD LOSES A TOOTH, THE WHITE RAT WILL COME IF HE
PUTS HIS TOOTH UNDER THE PILLOW. IF HES BEEN GOOD, THE WHITE RAT
WILL LEAVE HIM MONEY, OR A FIG, OR AN ORANGE. IF HE HASNT BEEN
GOOD, THE WHITE RAT WILL LEAVE HIM A LUMP OF COAL, OR A ROCK, OR
SOMETHING THAT'S USELESS. SO IF YOU ARE A SMART BAD KID, YOU WON'T
PUT YOUR TOOTH UNDER THE PILLOW.
