“A Brit-flavored romp that combines moments of intense terror and bracing courage with biting satire.”
— Kirkus Reviews
“A Dahl-esque mix of humor and horror that will appeal to fans of both.”
— Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“A goofy, gory, outlandish tale of deep evil and terrible tooth-rot—and sweetness of heart. Kids who enjoy humorous gross-out horror will definitely want to book an appointment of their own with the Demon Dentist.”
