We liked this book because it stuck to one idea. The illustrations really complimented the words. The drawings reminded us of a cartoon. Our favorite part of the book was when Doctor DeSoto put gases up the fox's nose and when he painted his teeth together. The fox changed his mind and he decided he would wait a day to eat Doctor DeSoto. The unique part of the book is that the mouse tricked the fox. It reminded me of when I got my tonsils out because it was hard to eat and talk. It reminded me of the dentist office because most of the story took place there.
We recommend this book to people who like books with good illustrations and who would enjoy a story that you can picture in your mind. We also recommend this book to people who like going to the dentist. We think this book is good for all grades because it is a Newbery Honor book.
