Demon Dentist by David Walliams

Demon Dentist by David Walliams

Young Alfie’s rotting teeth are in desperate need, but he’s terrified of the town’s new dentist. He thinks Miss Root is pure evil…and he’s right.  Waking up after his visit, he finds she’s pulled ALL of his teeth!  To save others from the same fate (or worse), he pairs with friend Gabz to end Root’s shockingly (yet kid-pleasing) grotesque behavior. With evil adults, plucky children, minimal adult involvement (save Alfie’s dad and social worker) – and black and white illustrations reminiscent of Quentin Blake – this Dahl-ish read is a huge UK hit. (Ages 8-13)
