    Emil and the Bad Tooth

    1976 Björn Berg

    Lina, the maid at Katthult, had a terrible toothache.
    “You’d better go to Sme-Pelle”, said Alfred. Sme-Pelle is the name they gave the local blacksmith. He used to extract aching teeth with his gruesome pair of tongs. “How much does he charge for one tooth?” asked Lina. “Fifty öre per hour”, said Alfred.
