Doctor de Soto, a dentist who also happens to be a mouse, is the best dentist in town. He treats animals of all shapes and sizes - that is, except for "cats and other dangerous animals".

This modern classic is full of mischief, warmth and humour.
In the further adventures of the hero from the Newbery Honor-winning Doctor De Soto, the diminutive dentist is summoned by cablegram to Africa to aid Mudambo, an elephant with an unbearable toothache. Children's Choices for 1993 (IRA/CBC)
