Cover for Grandfather Ratoncito Perez and the Apprentice Tooth Fairy!


Illustrator Fiona Hodgetts, Wolverhampton England, just completed the cover art for my latest mathematical adventure!

Teachers tell me they could use a picture book to help them teach children to count coins and the Hispanic tooth mouse Ratoncito Perez offered just the inspiration I needed. What would happen if an apprentice tooth fairy hadn’t learned her lessons well and her first “tooth exchange” turned into a disaster? You know coins can be heavy and Night Wind is a terrible bully! Grandfather Ratoncito Perez shares duties with tooth fairies in North America and such a fine, gentlemanly mouse will surely come to the young tooth fairy’s aide!





“Grandfather Ratoncito Perez and the Apprentice Tooth Fairy”, will be released in the spring of 2014.
