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?… (altro)

Dark, gruesome & quite scary, Walliams hits the spot again. ( )
  Stephen.Lawton | Aug 7, 2021 |
This is one of the funniest books I have read. Alfie takes care of his dad who can no longer work in the mines because of his health. It's just Alfie and Da. A dentist moves into town and comes to school for a lecture. She studies all the children's teeth. A social worker, Winnie, has been assigned to Alfie's family. She sees Alfie's teeth and makes an appointment with the new dentist. Alfie and his friend Gabz feel there is something wrong with this dentist and Alfie wants no part of dentistry (bad early experience.) And so the chase begins.

I laughed throughout the book. I loved the characters especially Winnie, Raj, and Alfie. Outrageous and mysterious, it is wonderful how Alfie and Gabz find out the truth. I loved Da. There is more to him than a sick old man. He's a hero.

This is a book for everyone. It brightened my day. ( )

Oh what fun. Some of this made me a little uncomfortable (it's a bit dark in places from an adult perspective and some the descriptions of the fat social worker make me wince) but overall it was a delight. Absolutely laugh out loud funny in places and full of creepiness galore. Plus knickers and fart jokes which are probably spot on for the intended age group ;) ( )

Narrated by David Williams, Jocelyn Jee Esien and Nitin Ganatra. The narrators are energetic in this humorous performance although I do wonder about stereotypical accents of West Indian Winnie and the South Asian news agent. Otherwise kids will glory in the gross horror and humor of a dentist gone mad. An entertaining and funny listen for the whole family--unless a parent is a dentist who won't appreciate the "scary dentist" angle. ( )

This book was terrifically funny but pretty creepy! The evil lady in it (of whom I won't give the name) seemed so real she would often come to life and I would be scared to put my letters under my pillow! Quite sad at points but very happy at others, this book was a brilliant novel and I can't wait to read Walliams' next ones.

Short twelve-year-old Alfie was an ordinary little boy who led an ordinary life. His father had been confined to a wheelchair after having coal pulled up in his lungs in his young job as a miner. Alfie had to look after him by himself, for his mother died when he was only a little baby.

One day, when Alfie was out at school, the school dentist, Mr Erstwhile, had 'apparently stabbed himself with his own equipment', and a new, rather creepy looking woman, Mr Root, had taken his place. She would have probably broken the World Record of the creepiest look and the shiniest teeth, for everybody was dazzled by them.

Alfie hadn't been to the dentist for six years, for when he had had tooth ache, Mr Erstwhile had indeed used all his force to pull out the tooth causing it. But was it the causing tooth? Oh no. He had pulled out the wrong one. And when Alfie realised this, he started hiding stacks of dentist letters up on the pantry shelf, where no one could find them.

When Miss Root saw his rotten teeth, she immediately order to pull them out. She did so, leaving Alfie in great, great pain, more pain than he had ever felt. But I cannot show any spoilers. Only a few more freakish hints before you read the book yourself..

..There was somebody replacing innocent kids' teeth with revolting stuff..
..An interfering old bag tries to send Alfie to the dentist again and again..
..And finally, something happens to Dad I must not tell of..
..Read the book to find out more.. ( )
