The Tooth Fairy Meets El Raton Perez
Why I'm excited: I love intercultural books! Okay, that sounds boring. I'm excited about this book because it looks like a really cool addition to our multicultural collection. A little Mexican-American boy loses a tooth. He lives in America, where the tooth fairy picks up teeth, but his parents and grandparents are from Mexico, where teeth are collected by a mouse named Perez. What happens when the Tooth Fairy and El Raton Perez both show up to claim Miguel's tooth? Doesn't that sound like a terrific book?
