El Doctor De Soto es un dentista que siempre hace buen trabajo. Con la ayuda de su capaz asistente, la Señora De Soto, el maneja los dolores de dientes de los animales grandes y pequeños. Su experiencia es tan grande que sus pacientes afortunados nunca sienten dolor alguno.

Al ser un ratón, el Doctor De Soto se rehúsa a tratar animales "peligrosos"—es decir, animales con un gusto por los ratones. Pero un día un zorro se aparece y ruega por algún alivio del dolor severo que siente en su diente. ¿Cómo pueden los De Sotos bondadosos rechazar al zorro? Pero, ¿cómo se pueden asegurar que el zorro no cederá a sus instintos básicos tan pronto su diente haya sido arreglado? Los listos De Sotos encontrarán la manera.

“Simple but sly, a mischievously imaginative rendition of the classic theme.” —Starred, Kirkus Reviews

“Doctor De Soto is a mouse dentist who...operates a clinic open to all except animals threatening to mice. What to do, then, when a weeping and wailing fox shows up for treatment?. . .There is great wit and good fun in the illustrations.” —Starred, Booklist
