About the Book

This New York Times bestseller from David Walliams, the UK’s #1 bestselling children’s author and “the heir to Roald Dahl” (The Spectator), launched his books stateside in a big way!

Walliams makes going to the dentist a wacky adventure with his signature humor—this is one dentist appointment you don’t want to miss.

Something strange is happening in Alfie's town. Instead of shiny coins from the Tooth Fairy, kids are waking up to dead slugs, live spiders, and other dreadfully icky things under their pillows.

Who would do something so horrific? Alfie is sure that Miss Root, the creepy new dentist in town, is behind it all. There's nothing Alfie hates more than going to the dentist, but to solve this mystery, he may have to book a dreaded appointment….

Critical Praise

PRAISE IN THE USA FOR DEMON DENTIST:
“A Brit-flavored romp that combines moments of intense terror and bracing courage with biting satire.” - Kirkus Reviews

“A Dahl-esque mix of humor and horror that will appeal to fans of both.” - Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Dahl-esque in the extreme…Frenetic humor for middle grade fans of the funny and fearsome.” - School Library Journal
