Laughed from beginning to end!

Demon Dentist is a mix of horror fantasy and comedy. I love the writing style and I love how it made me laugh so much! Most of his books are really hilarious but, this one is more on the horror side. Sometimes the book can get dark in many ways and because of this quick change between funny and scary it may convince younger children to put the book down. 11 and up is a good age but if your child is extremely sensitive to either scary or gory books/movies it might be best for 13+. But it's still an outstanding book!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
