In this charming picture book written by Susan Hood, the Tooth Mouse (who replaces the Tooth Fairy in French-speaking countries) has called a meeting to announce her retirement. “I am not as spry as I used to be ... I have decided it is time to name my successor!” she tells the surprised crowd. Sophie, an energetic and very tiny mouse, desperately wants the job. “C'est moi!” Sophie thinks. “Choose me! Choose me!” But the position of Tooth Mouse --- or La Petite Souris --- isn't just given to anyone; it must be earned by participating in a difficult and dangerous three-part contest to determine which of all the mouse applicants is the most brave, honest and wise. Will Sophie, the smallest and daintiest of the aspirants, manage to beat the odds and win the challenging competition for her dream job? In the style of a classic fable, this gentle yet inspiring story is sure to captivate young children with the delightful idea of a small mouse making her way under the pillows of sleeping children at night instead of the Tooth Fairy. It also provides an irresistible and uplifting message that size doesn't have to determine who succeeds in life. Award-winning artist Janice Nadeau's lovely illustrations in soft, muted colors add a delicate whimsy to the tale. This book would be a fantastic read-aloud for any storytime. Sprinkled with French expressions and phrases throughout, it would make a terrific introduction to foreign languages as well.

Susan Hood is the author of more than 200 children's books, including several other Pup and Hound titles for Kids Can Press. She was most recently the Children's Content Director for Nick Jr. Magazine. Susan lives in Fairfield, Connecticut.

Janice Nadeau studied graphic design and illustration at the Université du Québec à Montréal and at the École supérieure des arts décoratifs de Strasbourg (France). She likes to explore different applications of her medium, whether it's illustrating books or designing textile. Janice is a three-time recipient of the Governor General's Award for Illustration, Canada's most prestigious literary prize.

Publishers Weekly

Those who've believed in the Tooth Fairy will happily make a place for the Tooth Mouse.
Booklist, Starred Review

With a nod to classic titles of years past, this provides a fresh, modern take on an itty-bitty heroine's achievement of her seemingly impossible goal.
