About this deal

This is one of the VERY, VERY ,VERY best and FUNNIEST books I've ever read, and I've been reading a number of books for young adults and children lately, and as I haven't been well, this has been more than a real TONIC for me!

I'm not rudely dissagreeing with the reviewer, but personally this book is sutable for children over 7, as littler children get more scared, including that there is some words they won't get.

Children would put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, but in the morning they would wake up to find. Secondly , I would recommend this to everyone because the story is so well written and the imagination is nuts. From the amusing `KNICKERGATE' encountered with Miss Hare; the mere sight of Winnie crawling through a hole and losing her clothes on the way to reveal a bright orange bra that would hold footballs - and large pink knickers that would house kids in a small tent - to the speeding of the social worker on her moped through the school corridors during the big chase - to hearing Winnie: 'Oh my word - look at the boy's teet' - Alfie: 'my teet? They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. When I first started the book, I really believed that with what seems rather a substantial read, could not possibly have maintained the same momentum throughout; I really felt it would have to slow down and the humour diminish somewhat with its progress - how wrong I was!

I thought this book was scary first when they have to close there eyes in assembly for a dentist it was really scary and i loved to because you showed how they really felt and their actions! 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. He has gone on to take the children’s literary world by storm, dominating sales charts and twice winning the National Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year. Alfie and Gabz are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery - but no-one could have dreamed what they'll discover when they come face to face with the demon dentist herself, in this hilarious and thrilling story! If people are getting scared by a flipping book, then they're obviously soft and need to get a grip.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. 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! 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. 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. With just a hint of modern technology, (not over done) this story could be set in any era - which is really the secret and type of stuff that makes classics that can be enjoyed for generations!

He took up swimming in his youth because he was overweight, and has subsequently completed long distance swims of the English Channel, the Strait of Gibraltar and the River Thames, raising millions of pounds for charity!

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! Join Alfie and Gabz on this fabulous adventure, as they investigate the strange events happening in their home town! Children are leaving their teeth for the tooth fairy and waking up to find odd things under their pillows! Gangsta Granny went straight to number 1 in the children’s book charts and globally his books have been translated into no fewer than 25 languages. Walliams has been turning out since 2008, then long may it continue - and long may he reign for giving so much laughter to kids of all ages - even ones like myself in their sixth decade!
