The new jaw-achingly funny novel from David Walliams, the number one bestselling author! Make your appointment if you dare...
Darkness had come to the town. Strange things were happening in the dead of night. Children would put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, but in the morning they would wake up to find... a dead slug; a live spider; hundreds of earwigs creeping and crawling beneath their pillow.
Evil was at work. But who or what was behind it...?

This book by David Walliams is slightly darker than some of his other ones.  I found it to be quite scary and gruesome.  There is a very scary Dentist, and her cat Fang, who wants rip every child's entire mouthful of teeth out, and she leaves vile 'gifts' under their pillow as a treat. My boys found it hilarious but I'm sure some younger readers would find it scary.  There are lots of illustrations in this tale and they are quite sinister yet humorous at the same time.  I would highly recommend this book to reluctant readers.

I really enjoyed this book, I found the storyline very interesting. The characters are amazing, especially Alfie. He is very curious and funny. I also like his Dad who is kind and courageous even if he is disabled.

David Walliams is an extremely talented writer. This book revolves around Alfie, a young boy that detests going to the dentist. He lives with his dad, whose lungs are damaged from working in a coal mine. His school is visited by the new dentist in the area, a woman with mind-boggingly white teeth called Miss Root. Everyone loves her, but Alfie thinks that she isn't who she seems. He isn't alone in his theory; Gabz, a shy girl in his year believes exactly the same thing. Alfie discovers that the toothpaste she has given everyone to use contains acid, and can eat away at even metal. Also, kids in the area, that are putting teeth underneath their pillow to get a coin, are finding all sorts of horrors under their pillows instead, such as a bat's wing or a dead slug! At home, things are looking bleak for Alfie too, with his dad hiring a social worker called Winnie. Winnie feels that Alfie is a poor troubled child lost in his world of imagination, whereas Alfie is annoyed by the fact that no one believes his theory about Mrs Root. 

A book with a sensational plot-twist and an ending that will leave your eyes welling up in tears. I would definitely recommend it.

My daughter and I loved this story. It would be our bedtime story.... Every night we would be excited to snuggle up and fall into the world of Alfie. What a touching story about Alfie life, a character everyone will adore. The demon dentist was describe amazingly and we could imagine the pristine white jacket and her tall thin figure.
What a fun story packed with adventure for the whole family to enjoy!

Another great book by David Walliams. The children in my year 2 class are loving his books currently as they are really getting into reading longer books. These books keep them engaged and laughing all the way.

Review written by 13 year old boy...
The book is based around the main character being Alfie, a 12 year old boy whose teeth are basically rotten,When a strange new dentist comes to town Alfie is suspicious and thinks something might be wrong.
This book is yet again another jaw breaking favourite of David Walliams and has me cracking up from start to finish.
It’s a comedy fiction based book and all that read it will love it, I look forward to watching the TV adaptation version of this book

This book was very funny. My TA at school didn't want me to read it because she said it was scary, but I knew it was just a story. The dentist is not nice and doesn't like children, but David Walliams writes things in a funny way, so it makes you laugh.

I really liked this book and have read it at least 3 times! It is an amazing story about a boy that no one believes. He has to go to extraordinary measures to protect every child from the demon dentist. I would recommend this book to anyone, unless you have a severe phobia of dentists!

I loved this book by David walliams (the author) because it has a great story line and it teaches kids to brush their teeth because if you don't brush your teeth the demon dentist will get you. My favourite character was the Demon dentist because she is so detailed and a fun character. If i could describe this book in two words i would say brilliant and outstanding. This book made me feel like everything was real because this book just takes away whats around you and takes you into the book.

This was a good book but less entertaining then some of the others that David Williams had written. If you like this I would highly recommend Gangsta Granny, Grandpa’s great escape or Billionaire Boy.

I thought this book worth 448 pages was OK. Not the best but it was OK. I like  Bad Dad best. I have now gone off David Walliams'  books so I am going to give them to my brother. I used to read this book every night until I finished. It kid of freaked me out near the end though. If I tell you I will spoil the book.
