In this story, Dr. Jekyll, Orthodontist, there is a kid named Zack. He is ten years old. Weird things happen to him all the time. If a weird thing happens to someone, it always happens to him. In this story he goes to an orthodontist named Dr. Jekyll and something really weird happened. Read this book to find out what it is.

I like this book because the illustrations look so realistic and almost 3-D. There are only about seven pictures. I don’t like Dr. Jekyll the Orthodontist because he does weird stuff. For example, he lets kids drink Miracle Mouth Wash that he says is “yum-dilly-icious.” I also like this book because it is funny. One time Zack said “When we are done you can go get a little plastic dinosaur from the toy bin” to Dr. Jekyll in monster form. I thought that was funny.

I recommend this book for 7-9 year olds or for people who like weird things or mysteries. I like this book because it is funny and scary.
