Meet Gabz from David Walliams’ DEMON DENTIST


Bestselling children’s author David Walliams has an exciting new book that’s just come out called Demon Dentist!

“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 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 is behind it…?”

To get ready for the read of your life, we’re introducing you to some of our favourite characters in the book!

Today we’re meeting a very clever girl called Gabz. Press play below to find out more…

Walliams-GabzGabz may be the shortest girl in school, but this 11-year-old is not to be messed with! Apart from Alfie, she’s the only one at school who’s noticed something odd about the new dentist.

Strange things have been happening in the dead of night. And it all started when Miss Root arrived in town. Now, along with Alfie (who is definitely NOT her boyfriend), Gabz is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery

But if Gabz is right and Miss Root is behind it all, how is the dentist doing it? What is she after? And most important of all… how can she be stopped?
