Meet Miss Root from David Walliams’ DEMON DENTIST

Demon-Dentist-webDavid Walliams has an exciting new book that’s just come out called Demon Dentist!

“Strange things are happening in the dead of night. Children 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 or hundreds of earwigs creeping and crawling beneath their pillow!

Evil is clearly at work, but who or what is behind it?”

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

Today we’re meeting Miss Root, the suspicious new dentist in town! Press play below to find out more…


Walliams-DemonDentist-CharacterMiss Root appears to be just like any other dentist – she has perfect teeth, wears a white lab coat and gives children sugar-free sweets.

On the other hand, her own brand of toothpaste burns through stone like acid. Her specially made toothbrush scratches your teeth away rather than cleans them. Worst of all, she insists on all her patients calling her… Mummy?!

This dentist has something mysterious about her. Of course, Alfie isn’t a fan of any dentist – but this one might be worse than even he ever imagined!
