Doctor De Soto, mouse and expert dentist, does very good work, curing toothache in animals large and small. He and his able assistant, Mrs De Soto, usually refuse to treat any animals that have a taste for mouse, but one day a fox arrives at his office begging for relief from a rotten tooth. Will the kind-hearted De Sotos turn him away?





"I cannot imagine childhood without Steig: Sylvester, Pearl, Caleb, and now Doctor De Soto."--"The Dallas Morning News""""This is one of those picture books that are so good I'd just like to quote the whole thing."--"Philadelphia Inquirer""""Simple but sly, a mischievously imaginative rendition of the classic theme."--"Kirkus Reviews", Starred Review"Doctor De Soto is a mouse dentist who . . . operates a clinic open to all except animals threatening to mice. What to do, then, when a weeping and wailing fox shows up for treatment? . . . There is great wit and good fun in the illustrations."--"Booklist", Starred Review
