This is one of the most incredible kids picture book that I have ever read. Is the mouse dentist Doctor de Soto a fool for treating a fox? Is he kind for breaking his rule of not treating a predator? Does he have a tremendous work ethic.."once I start a job, I finish it." While we root (no pun intended) for Doctor De Soto, he turns out to be not only kind, ethical, but also skeptical, practical and very wise.

Somewhere in here is a subtle mix of some bleeding heart kindness with an anti- politically correct message. Works well! Although it looks like a book for very little kids, it is worthy of discussion with kids of all ages.. I'm thinking it would be great reading for a family with kids of a variety of ages to share together.

The drawings are as evocative as the text.
