Overview Djeveltanna

A good thrill for children who are staring to loose their teeth, and everyone else. A juicy and lushly disgusting book about life underground. Never before have you read a tooth-pulling story like this one!

This book is filled with slimy and disgusting details about beings that creep and crawls, and about big and small devils. It's also very much about loosing teeth, about horrible mothers and understanding grandmothers, slightly feeble dads and terrible older brothers. And not least about the dream of a soft, soft pillow to rest your head on, such a pillow that legend says that humans have. We people who read this book get to know a lot of strange things about what really moves under our feet, deep down there in the narrow, sulphur-smelling passages of the underground. But if you are very afraid of going to the dentist, you should probably stay away from this book. Unless you're looking for a good thrill!
