Demon Dentist by David Walliams review and giveaway

I enjoyed reading this book and can see how entertaining it would be to children aged 9 upwards. I did read aloud carefully selected extracts to my four year old (he loves dark comedy and all things scary!) which he loved - especially the bit about a motorcycle display team jumping over a bus! We laughed and giggled together throughout the book - it's very funny!

There's been comparisons to Roald Dahl and I have to say being a huge Dahl fan, I was a bit skeptical at first. However, the comparisons have been made with good reason, the story would appeal to any Dahl fan and the illustrator, Tony Ross (Horrid Henry) has done a fantastic job!

This book is awesome, it's the first Walliams book I've read and now I want to read the rest!

... oh and you get a free pair of false teeth too ;-)

I'm lucky enough to have a copy to give away to one of my wonderful readers, see below. 

DEMON DENTIST for aged 9+
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...?

The long-awaited fantastically funny new children's novel from The King of Comedy, David Walliams! Continuing their perfect partnership, this novel will be illustrated by Tony RossDavid Walliams goes from strength to strength as thefastest growing children’s author in the UK.
