Demon Dentist

Roald Dahl meets Sweeney Todd in this dentist’s chair. Make your appointment if you dare… Darkness has come to the town. Strange things are happening in the dead of night. Children put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, but in the morning they wake up to find… a dead slug; a live spider; hundreds of earwigs creeping and crawling beneath their pillow. Evil is at work. But who or what is behind it…? Find out in this jaw-aching treat by your favourite TV funnyman!

  • Delightfully Devious, Brilliantly blood thirsty, Tantalisingly tooth taker. I’d say his best book yet it was scary but in a funny way. WARNING…MOST DENTISTS ARE NICE

    I remember getting this for christmas last year, and I absolutely loved it!! David Walliams is a hilarious author, and probably one of the most popular in the childrens’ book world.

    Children are waking up to slugs, spiders, all different sorts of creepy crawlies, but how? Alfie is booked in with an appointment to see the Demon Dentist herself, and he soon finds out…

    Although this wasn’t as good as David Walliam’s newest book, Awful Auntie, I still enjoyed it so much! David Walliams isn’t as good as Roald Dahl, but in my opinion better!!

    I will now be buying the rest of the books by this author ASAP, as I think I have found a favourite author.
