Description


Does every country have a tooth fairy? Well, in Spain and other Spanish- speaking countries, it happens to be a tooth mouse, and this is his story


Long ago, throughout the Spanish-speaking world, the tooth mouse brought children their permanent teeth, strong and straight as a mouse's. Tracing the tooth mouse's beginnings through to his descendants, this book artfully weaves the tooth mouse's changing habits as the world industrializes, with the growing independence of the child, as teeth fall out and the child learns to care for itself.

It's also a playful, thought-provoking history of our changing world--as even tooth mice and children must adapt their customs when faced with the culture-shifting forces of urbanization, migration, and capitalism...

Just remember, magic can always be recovered, and the real gift in losing baby teeth is growing up
