The new jaw-achingly funny novel from David Walliams, the number one bestselling author!
Make your appointment if you dare...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...? Read this book and find out!

Review by BruceGargoyle
Quick synopsis:Scary dentist lady spreads fear, loathing and creepy-crawlies while terrorising the life of lovable protagonist Alfie and his girlfriend (sorry, girl friend) Gabz.For fans of Walliams, this will be another enjoyable escapade. Personally I feel he peaked with his first two books (The Boy in the Dress and Mr Stink) and all those since have been a little bland. Nevertheless, there is much here to appeal to the target middle-grade audience and the large print and quirky illustrations make this a great choice for a read-together or to spur on a reluctant young reader.
Review by celerydog
Wide appeal to EAL students drawn in by large font and Tony Ross's quirky illustrations. 9+ A must for Walliams' fans.
Review by martensgirl
I was disappointed with this book; I have read several of Walliams' other books and this was nowhere near as good. I don't know whether it's because I'm tired of his books about children with 'issues' or whether the gags are wearing thin, but this book was not very enjoyable.
