"A goofy, gory, outlandish tale of deep evil and terrible
tooth-rot-and sweetness of heart. Kids who enjoy humorous gross-out
horror will definitely want to book an appointment of their own
with the Demon Dentist."--Wall Street Journal
"Ross's energetic drawings and some playful use of typography bring additional drama and humor to the story. The story's comedy is nicely counterbalanced by the poignant bond between Jack and Grandpa."--Publishers Weekly
PRAISE IN THE USA FOR DEMON DENTIST: "A Brit-flavored romp that combines moments of intense terror and bracing courage with biting satire."--Kirkus Reviews
PRAISE IN THE USA FOR GRANDPA'S GREAT ESCAPE: "A realistic and touching relationship. Ample illustrations from the always splendid Ross will keep the pages in this plump volume turning. A Dahl-esque tale."--Kirkus Reviews
