"Doctor De Soto, the dentist, did very good work." With the aid of his able assistant, Mrs. De Soto, he copes with the toothaches of animals large and small. His expertise is so great that his fortunate patients never feel any pain.

Since he's a mouse, Doctor De Soto refuses to treat "dangerous" animals--that is, animals who have a taste for mice. But one day a fox shows up and begs for relief from the tooth that's killing him. How can the kindhearted De Sotos turn him away? But how can they make sure that the fox doesn't give in to his baser instincts once his tooth is fixed? Those clever De Sotos will find a way.

Doctor De Soto is a 1982 New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year and Outstanding Book of the Year, a 1983 Boston Globe - Horn Book Awards Honor Book for Picture Books, and a 1983 Newbery Honor Book.

Doctor De Soto is a mouse dentist, beloved by all his patients, with one policy: no predators welcome! When a fox with a terrible toothache needs his help, though, Dr. De Soto and his wife come up with a plan to help their new patient while living to tell the tale. This is a great play on the classic stories of tricksters and good outsmarting evil, perfect for older preschoolers and elementary school-aged kids.
