Summary

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…?

A few cautions for parents of younger listeners

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No - but I would have appreciated knowing a bit more about it before we listened as a family

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

Better for children 9/10+

What three words best describe David Walliams’s voice?

Fun, fun, fun

Did Demon Dentist inspire you to do anything?

No

Any additional comments?

I've not read any other reviews of this book which forewarn listeners that the story of the tooth fairy may come up for rather more scrutiny than some might be ready for. The magic is reinstated but there's a wobble or two along the way - and I'm not just talking about wobbly teeth.
We listened in a car journey with children 5 and 8 - as a family we're huge fans of the various David Walliams audiobooks so were excited to listen to this one too. I'm not sure the children enjoyed it quite so much as others, and this is the first we've heard where DW does not do ALL the voices (Raj sounds a bit different in this one!). Some of the story is a bit dark and cranks up the scary atmosphere - parents, be aware and ready to provide reassurance (see first point on this also)
All in all - enjoyable but not our favourite of the DW books.

My favourite character is Alfie!

If you could sum up Demon Dentist in three words, what would they be?

Sad, Scary,Delightful

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.

What about David Walliams’s performance did you like?

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.

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........

Great but not ideal for bedtime!

My daughter tells me that it was a bit spooky and that the music was also a bit ominous! This aside she really enjoyed it. I thought the narration by David Williams was outstanding.
