Publisher's Summary

The new jaw-achingly funny novel from David Walliams, the number-one best-selling 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…? Listen to this book and find out!

Buyer beware!

Would you consider the audio edition of Demon Dentist to be better than the print version?

Not read print version, so no idea.


Would you recommend Demon Dentist to your friends? Why or why not?

Only for children aged 9 or over, and not of a nervous disposition!


Any additional comments?

Very very dark. We didn't find it as funny as the previous books. I find it amusing that reviews I read before buying, only warned of the disclosure that the tooth fairy is not real. Presumably these people think that the main character having all their teeth removed without anaesthetic, and then later being dangled over a vat of acid designed to strip the flesh from their bones is OK? My 9 year old children found it quite disturbing, and went decidedly pale at times. That being said, they didn't want to turn it off........

What other book might you compare Demon Dentist to, and why?

Billionaire Boy. It is similar because it made me laugh as much as Demon Dentist.

I liked Raj's accent.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Any additional comments?

I think you will enjoy it because when David Walliams tells the story he uses adjectives and connectives.
