Pérez Mouse arrived in Ballyglunin / El Ratoncito Pérez llegó a Ballyglunin

Two children, Antonio Jimenez and Christian Berrio lost a tooth yesterday in the Cliffs of Moher and as it is tradition in Spain Pérez Mouse arrived.

This is the story of Pérez Mouse:

The Ratoncito Pérez or Ratón Pérez (Pérez Mouse in English) is a figure popular in Spanish and Hispanic American cultures, originating in Madrid in 1894. As is traditional in some English-speaking countries, when a child loses a tooth it is customary for him or her to place it under the pillow, so that Ratoncito Pérez will exchange it for a gift. The tradition is almost universal in Spanish cultures, but takes different forms in different areas. He is known as "La petite souris" in France, "Topolino" , "Topino" or "Fatina" in Italy and in english spoken countries is known as "Tooth Fairy".

A dos niños, Antonio Jimenez y Christian Berrio se les cayó un diente ayer en los acantilados de Moher.

Esta es la historia del Ratoncito Pérez:

El Ratoncito Pérez es una figura popular española y culturas hispano hablantes, comenzando en Madrid en 1894. Como es tradición en paises hispano-hablantes, cuando a un niño se le cae un diente es costumbre que lo coloque bajo la almohada y el Ratoncito Pérez se lo cambia por un regalo.
En Francia se le llama "Ratoncito" (la petite souris), en Italia se le conoce como "Topolino", "Topino" (Ratoncito) o "Fatina" (Hadita) y en los países anglosajones este papel lo encarna el "Hada de los dientes" (Tooth Fairy).
