Both the Tooth Fairy and Ratón Pérez are pulling and pushing the tooth. Then they lose it, and when they find it by the book shelf neither one of them can get to it.
Author’s purpose: Entertain.
I love how the author brought together two totally different cultures, and traditions into a beautiful children’s story book. Both the Tooth Fairy, and El Ratón Pérez are claiming Miguelito’s tooth; and the author does an excellent job in conveying a message of acceptance through their differences and similarities. The illustrations are beautiful, and cartoonish which makes it fun to look at; and the story line although in English has words in Spanish as well.
I would highly recommend this book as a multicultural addition to any home library.
