The Tooth Mouse
In this charming picture book from Susan Hood, the Tooth Mouse has called a meeting to announce her retirement. Sophie, an energetic and very tiny mouse, desperately wants the job. But the position of Tooth Mouse isn't just given to anyone, it must be earned in a challenging competition. Will Sophie beat the odds and win the job of her dreams?
In the style of a classic fable, this gentle yet inspiring story is sure to delight and captivate children. It provides an irresistibly uplifting message that size doesn't have to determine who succeeds in life. Award-winning artist Janice Nadeau's lovely illustrations in soft, muted colors add a delicate whimsy to the tale.
Sprinkled with French expressions and phrases throughout, it would make a terrific introduction to foreign languages.
