This is an engaging and amusing story, with copious very fetching illustrations by Martin Brown, who is well known for his HORRIBLE HISTORIES artwork... Children in the early stages of reading will get a lot of enjoyment from THE DRAGON'S DENTIST, and a justifiable sense of pride that they have read a chapter book. — Anne Harding, THE SCHOOL LIBRARIAN JOURNAL
