This New York Times bestseller from David Walliams, the UK's #1 bestselling children's author and "the heir to Roald Dahl" (The Spectator), launched his books stateside in a big way!

Walliams makes going to the dentist a wacky adventure with his signature humor--this is one dentist appointment you don't want to miss.

Something strange is happening in Alfie's town. Instead of shiny coins from the Tooth Fairy, kids are waking up to dead slugs, live spiders, and other dreadfully icky things under their pillows.

Who would do something so horrific? Alfie is sure that Miss Root, the creepy new dentist in town, is behind it all. There's nothing Alfie hates more than going to the dentist, but to solve this mystery, he may have to book a dreaded appointment....

This is a horror story.

With quite a lot of made-up words.

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 . . . ?

Book your appointment with the Demon Dentist

Don't worry, it won't hurt a bit.

"No one has any business being as talented as David Walliams. He is the heir to Roald Dahl--and that's saying a lot." -- The Spectator

"[Walliams's books] will become classics."-- The Guardian
