Summary of the Story TOM LOSES A TOOTH:

This is a story of a boy who does childlike pranks. For the young boys and girls, there is a general aversion to school. School is a compulsory purgatory for them as there they have mental and physical punishment . Here Tom’s imagination produces a lot of laughter. Waking up from sleep, Tom first thinks how he will avoid going to school. Naturally seniors do not give any value to such a useless demand. They think that the children will be spoiled unless they go to school.

So Tom must have to find out some serious cause to serve his purpose. He starts to search for some physical distress or ailment. Initially he thinks about his stomach trouble. But that is not a grave problem. So, he thinks about his loose tooth. But he has to drop this plan also, thinking that Aunt Polly may pull his tooth out. So, he starts pretending that he suffers from a sore toe. He starts to groan.

Ultimately it drags his Aunt upstairs. She gives little importance to the sore toe. Then Tom tells her about the tooth. She then and there tries to pull the loose tooth out to solve this problem. By this time the case has gone beyond Tom’s grip. Even after admitting the truth he is unable to make himself free from his Aunt’s clutches. Ultimately he loses the tooth, creating a gap in his upper row of teeth. Thus this hilarious episode comes to an end.
