Curious George Visits the Dentist

When George bites into a shiny apple made of wax, his tooth begins to hurt. The next morning George shows his wiggly tooth to the man with the yellow hat, who takes him to the dentist. George is nervous about his first visit to the dentist, but overcomes his fear and learns about better dental hygiene—with a little good-natured mayhem on the side!

With art in the style of H. A. Rey, this engaging story will teach young readers that there is nothing scary about the dentist or wobbly teeth—and adds some tooth fairy fun for good measure!
