Book Review: The Demon Dentist

It tells the story of a 12-year-old poor boy Alfie, whose teeth are totally rotten. When a strange new dentist comes to town, Alfie is suspicious and thinks something might be wrong.

THE DEMON DENTIST is a book by David Williams. It tells the story of a 12-year-old poor boy Alfie, whose teeth are totally rotten. When a strange new dentist comes to town, Alfie is suspicious and thinks something might be wrong. With his new friend Gabz, he investigates why the dentist, Miss Root is giving out free sweets and acidic toothpaste which can burn holes through the stone. He realizes he is in big trouble when she straps him onto the dentist’s chair and starts pulling out all his teeth.

It is a funny tale, inventive and original with fantastic illustrations. With plenty of silliness in the characters, they are extremely fun to read about. I liked this book because it was comic, a bit spooky and totally unbelievable. The made-up word alerts were fun too.

This book is suitable for children above 7 as there are some parts that may scare children from visiting the dentist’s clinic. It is grisly and also has dark humor.

The writer delivers the inside gripping with characters you care about and their usual hilarious flare. The characters are also well-drawn, in particular Alfie, who also takes care of his disabled dad. The end of this book is very exciting, heart-aching, and leaves you with a mix of emotions.

The moral of the book is that love is more important than anything and we should care for everyone. I strongly recommend this book to children above 7 because not only did I enjoy it but I learned a lot from it.
