# Every time you lose a tooth
# There's a pair of fearless mice

# To bring you all a nice surprise
# So go to bed and close your eyes. #
Helping your grandma to sew can be fun.
But when you haven't got a thimble, there's bound to be tears.
Are you all right, Mary?
Yes, Nanny. I just keep pricking my finger.
Here. Take this.
Mary needed a bigger thumb... or a smaller thimble.
The answer lay in the Kingdom of the Tooth Mice with Queen Elisa.
-Little Mary Wood has just lost her first milk tooth.
Quiet! Her mother's dead, poor child.
She helps her grandmother sew dresses. They're very poor.
-But she can't cope - it's too much for her.
What she needs is a magic thimble.
-No buts. I want it delivered tonight.
Magic tales, magic teddies, magic terrapins... Oh, no!
I knew it! No magic thimbles! They're all gone.
Can't we get one from somewhere else?
Let's see who had the last one. ..My, my!
The last magic thimble was given to Margaret Wood.
That's the girl's poor dead mother!
-Come on, Martin. It'll be in Mary's house.
-And HOW will we find it?!
It's probably in the attic, with all her mother's things.
-The attic? That's where Joshua lives!
Joshua was a tough old bird.
It was a brave Tooth Mouse who strayed into his attic.
He was short-tempered and short-sighted.
Gisele and Martin searched the attic from top to bottom.
-And that's when
Arthur! You gave me a fright.
Don't worry - Arthur's got it all under control.
We won't see Joshua. Owls go out hunting at night.
We'll NEVER find it amongst all this mess.
We've been looking for an hour already.
-Look in the chest of drawers.
-Get it open!
I can see a child's sewing box. The thimble must be in there!
I can't quite do it.
Wait - I've an idea.
Give us a hand, me dearies.
Hiding from Joshua SHOULD have been easy.
JOSHUA: I need new glasses...
So...owls hunt at night, do they(?)
-The thimble - did you find the thimble?
We wouldn't be seeing Joshua for a while, and he wouldn't be seeing us.
Gisele swapped the tooth for a thimble.
Mary was delighted with it.
And Grandma was delighted with Mary.
Mary? Finished. Oh...but how?
