(My copy of the limited edition “Ickle and Lardee’s Grand Adventure”, debuting in this blog together with my newly set up 5-foot Christmas tree. I almost gave up finding a fine tree for this season in the Gulf).
If I am to name the coolest and cutest blog ever, it is going to be Milk Toof. I learned about it through oodlesofgoodles several months ago. Since then, I’ve been following the teeth’s adventure. The blog is authored by Inhae Lee, an artist working in Berkeley, California. On the stars of her blog, she wrote (and it also appears on the back cover of the book):
When I was young, I placed my baby teeth under my pillow and when I woke up I’d find a shiny new quarter. But whatever happened to those little teeth? Where did they go? Would I ever see them again?
Many years later, a little tooth was standing at my door. It looked familiar. Welcome home, my milk toof!
The books were sold out few days after its release. Lucky me to have ordered it on time. The 80-page book tells the story of Ickle and Lardee on the day they went out to find a turtle, got lost, met a snail and other creatures until they found their way home again. That’s equivalent to 80 groovy photos with charming little captions on each. I read it thrice already and as always I carefully flip each page, as if I’m holding a prized possession. 😉
Enclosed in the package sent to me are three photocards. What a bonus! They originally came in a 3R size. But I decided to play with the layout for an added coolness. 😉
There’s no plan yet to reprint the book. But the blog alone is more than sufficient to entertain you. Check out what’s happening with the adventurous teeth as they prep up for the holidays.

It looks cute. Hindi ko pa nadadalaw ung blog nya, but rest assured that I will.
Honestly, are the characters ‘teeth’? That’s cool.
.-= Nebz´s last blog ..I work here =-.
Yes, the teeth are the main characters and they have names. The “teeth” are made up of clay, though.
you’re so lucky to have bought a copy! it sold out in a blink of an eye!
