Mr Dunfilling, a clever and famous dentist, with a very high forehead because of his large brains, must be one of the most attractive new heroes of recent books. He and his assistant, Ricky, romp through this who-dunnit in great style. The ghastly jokes of his friend, Mr Pinkbottom of Pink Bottom Underwear, have spawned yet another joke craze that as a teacher I love ... and dread! The adventure, revolving around terrible jokes about dentists, false teeth and gangs of robbers, is guaranteed to appeal to children who are venturing out on their own with 'chapter books'. The quirky illustrations support the text but also give the story an additional wry twist. Everyone is pressing to read the sequel - wait for it - Mr Dunfilling and the Cavity of Doom (0 7500 1843 7, £3.50 pbk).
