The Tooth Journey (When Bella Lost a Tooth)/Tandresan – Eller när Bella tappade en tand

Bella loses a tooth, and it’s almost magical. She’s a big girl now, says Aunt Persson. So big that she can probably ride the bus all by herself, Bella thinks. She pays with her teeth when she, Gustav and little brother Herbert take the bus to grandma’s. But how strange it looks at grandma’s, has she changed the wallpaper and furniture? Have Bella, Gustav and Herbert really ended up at the right place? What if they’ve ended up at a witch’s house instead?

A wonderful story about how far a loose tooth can take you. And that most things work out in the end. The book was originally published 40 years ago. The year after the first book about Bella and Gustav came out.
