Literature, tradition and cinema have left us famous mice that have become part of our cultural heritage, such as these:
-Perez mouse. This, also called Ratoncito Pérez, is a legendary character who is considered to be in charge of giving children a gift when a tooth falls out. Thus, the little ones must place the fallen tooth under the pillow before going to sleep, so that, in this way, while they sleep, the singular animal takes that one away and leaves them some trinkets, a story or some coins.
-Geronimo Stilton. This is a nice journalist mouse who has become the protagonist of the children’s literary saga created by the Italian writer Elisabetta Dami.
