Also at the point when the witch removed her too white to be real teeth to reveal hideous fangs which had blood. The illustrations are FABULOUS from Tony Ross - they're SO full of life, enthusiasm, and in tune with each and every character - they could have been drawn by Walliams himself they seem so accurate and authentic to the personalities!

Even the characters that played a very small part had marked differences from each other and seemed real! There's also surprises; I thought for a long time that the social worker was in league with Miss Root! This last detail is the basis of the story and it may seem like an inconsequential nugget, but the brilliance of Williams's storycraft is how he manages to create a comedic situation from the rather dire circumstances of Alfie's life by focusing on this one area. It follows in the vein of Roald Dahl stories, with delightfully quirky illustrations (in the Kindle version, at least), to accompany the at-times alarming story of 12-year old Alfie.

He went to art school in Liverpool and has since worked as a typographer for design and advertising agencies. Tony Ross's illustrations work brilliantly with Walliams's text; there's plenty of fast-paced action; and the jokes are gleefully ghoulish (and often gross). So I decided to read his book and I wanna say what I said a million times(probably not) in this review. Enter Miss Root, the demon dentist, a ghastly-looking dame of undeterminable age (though decidedly ancient), with a vampiric (white, to break the stereotype) cat, who is on a sinister mission involving lots of children's teeth and thwarted tooth-fairy gifts, which are replaced by dad slugs, live spiders, and even old men's toe nails.

In 2008 David’s first children’s book The Boy in the Dress was published, illustrated by Quentin Blake.David's books have achieved unprecedented critical acclaim - and both RATBURGER and DEMON DENTIST won the National Book Awards Children's Book of the Year. Yet whilst this book is unlikely to dispel any dentist fears, there's enough humour in the mix to prevent it becoming too terrifying for the majority of young readers. David began his publishing career at HarperCollins in early 2008 with his debut novel, The Boy in the Dress, followed by Mr Stink in 2009, Billionaire Boy in 2010 and Gangsta Granny in 2011. The people who read this made their own decision to get ths book, if they are frightened by the demon dentist, it's their problem not anyone elses. This was SUCH a delightful book and SO enjoyable to read, I was SO sad to reach the end of it - I just wanted it to go on and on and on!
