Review, School Library Journal:
"When Miguelito hides his lost tooth under his pillow, he has no idea that he is setting off a power struggle between the English-speaking world’s Tooth Fairy and her Spanish-speaking counterpart, El Ratón Pérez.... Young readers may not consciously recognize this tale as a metaphor for growing up in two cultures, but the story does model how to successfully negotiate a bicultural life... An excellent selection for libraries serving bicultural families."
"A marvelous story merging cultures seamlessly and with great humor. Adults will enjoy this read-aloud just as much as kids." —Sandra Cisneros, award-winning author of The House on Mango Street
