Stieg also published thirteen collections of drawings for adults, including The Lonely Ones, Male/Female, and Our Miserable Life.

Reviews

"I cannot imagine childhood without Steig: Sylvester, Pearl, Caleb, and now Doctor De Soto." --The Dallas Morning News

"This is one of those picture books that are so good I'd just like to quote the whole thing." --Philadelphia Inquirer

"Simple but sly, a mischievously imaginative rendition of the classic theme." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"Doctor De Soto is a mouse dentist who . . . operates a clinic open to all except animals threatening to mice. What to do, then, when a weeping and wailing fox shows up for treatment? . . . There is great wit and good fun in the illustrations." --Booklist, Starred Review
