What a beautiful and magical book! It’s a very cute and simple story of a Tooth Mouse that delivers coins to children in exchange for their baby teeth. But when she gets old, she needs to select a successor. So she calls all the mice to the cathedral and gives them three tasks – the one who succeeds will become the new Tooth Mouse. Susan Hood mixes in a few French words for children to learn. And the ending? Loved it. So smart. The pictures by Janice Nadeau are so very beautiful, old-fashioned, and tasteful. I was inspired to buy a copy to give as a birthday gift. (submitted by MB)

The Tooth Mouse is a French fable, their version of the tooth fairy. The tale is simple, yet stresses several important qualities like honesty, and includes some examples of French culture, like the cathedral the mice live in. Some words are in French, but they are easily understood within the context of the story for anyone who doesn't speak the language.
