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.
