Excerpt: ...86 "Yes," said Polly. "That was fun. But I know a better way now. I will show it to you." She took a flatiron. She tied a string to it. She set it on the kitchen table. Then she tied the other end of the string to Peter's loose tooth. She said, "This string is too short to reach the floor. You push the flatiron off the table. It will fall down and jerk out your tooth." "Shall I now?" asked Peter. "Yes, now." So Peter pushed the flatiron. But Polly had not been right. The string was too long. It reached to the floor. Down went the flatiron, bang! It landed on the edge of Peter's boot. It landed on the edge of Peter's toe, too. It hurt him, but not much. And the tooth did not come out. "Oh! Oh!" cried Peter.

I will leave you there." "Oh, goody, goody!" cried Polly. "Oh, goody, goody!" cried Peter. "You are to stay to dinner. I shall have my dinner at Large Village. Run and get ready." "Oh, oh, oh!" cried both children at once. Farmer Brown lived two and one half miles away. You must follow the road past Mr. Howe's store to find his house. Peter and Polly liked to go there.
