This book scared my 10 year old son
on 7 January 2014
I was very excited to get this new Walliams book for my son. He was equally excited to begin reading it. We read the first few chapters together and I really enjoyed it, end though I thought it would definitely put kids off the dentist for life. He obviously liked the story as he then read on over the next few nights on his own however at 10pm late at night, he came rushing into my room crying saying the skeleton drawings scared him and that he couldn't get them out of his mind. He then spent the night in my bed because he was too scared to go back in his room. Since then, he has not touched the book and has been too scared to read it. This is a real shame. I must admit, even I think the pictures are dry scary. My advice would be, upon reflection, do not let your child read at night or if they have any aversion whatsoever to the dentist. I regret buying this as I think it may have put him off future books from the author.
