Doctor de Sotoby William Steig
Synopses & Reviews
"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.
A collection of eight large-format, charming picture books illustrated by award-winning artists such as David McKee, Maurice Sendak, and Rosemary Wells.The funny and witty stories, suitable for reading aloud and young readers, deal with theme such as self-steem, family life, and imagination. Includes an original counting book -Cuando los borregos no pueden dormir. Doctor De Soto is a mouse dentist who, with his wife, 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? Great wit and good fun. 1983 Newbery Medal Honor.
A Newbery Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, "Doctor De Soto" tells the story of a mouse who's also a dentist, written by the creator of "Shrek." Full color.
From the incomparable William Steig, a story that proves even a fox can be out-foxed by a clever mouse.
