Doctor DeSoto is an excellent dentist. He's also a mouse, which comes in handy when he treats big animals like horses and cows, where he can climb right inside their mouths and take care of their teeth. However, he and his wife are very careful not to let dangerous animals that eat mice into the office.

But one day a fox with a terrible toothache needs their help and convinces the doctor to pull his tooth. The next day, when the fox returns to get his replacement tooth, he has a sneaky plan in place. Can Doctor DeSoto and his wife come up with a way to outfox the fox and install the new tooth without becoming a meal?

Bestselling author/illustrator William Steig, creator of the Shrek character, won the Newbery Honor for this colorful, witty, and highly original picture book that captures imaginations again and again.
