The story

Robey has an appointment with his dentist but is worried that his teeth are not white enough. His Granny comes to babysit and he notices that her teeth are brilliantly white! How can SHE have white teeth when she is SO old? Robey hatches a clever plan to fool the dentist. Will it work or will Granny's dog ruin it? What will the dentist say when he looks in Robey's mouth?

The Author

Edward Saunders wrote and illustrated 'The Dental Appointment' when he was just 11 years old. A happy, clever, handsome and fun-loving boy, he dreamed of one day publishing his own book. Tragically, at the age of 18 years, he died after contracting meningitis and was robbed of the opportunity to become an author. Determined to let Edward's dream come true, his parents and sister Emily have published this book in his memory. We hope you enjoy his humorous tale.

Get your name in the book

If you choose to be one of our top-bracket backers we will include your name on a thank you page in the printed book. We will also have an 'In memory of...' page, maybe you want to dedicate this project to a loved one you have lost. Once the project has finished, should it be successful, we will send out a short form for you to complete, telling us the names you would like printed in the book.

Risks and challenges

The challenge with this project has been producing it to a high standard, something that people will buy in the shops, but also keeping it true to Edward's original drawings, which we have added at the back of the book.

Printing and distributing the book is always the main challenge; we have tried to do this for as little cost as possible.
