Doing good with books, books which bring good into the world. These thoughts came into my mind when I came across a delightful children’s book called Robey and the Dentist.
Robey is a small boy worried that his dentist will think his teeth aren’t white enough – but learns that clean teeth are more important than white teeth. It’s not surprising that the book has been welcomed by the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry.
Robey and the Dentist was written by Edward Saunders when he was aged eleven. When he was eighteen Edward died from a violent strain of meningitis just a few hours after being taken ill. The book, crowdfunded and launched earlier this week, has been published in his memory, and is available on a dedicated website – http://www.robeyandthedentist.co.uk

Robey and the Dentist – the lasting legacy of a family and the special boy whose early death didn’t stop him giving something good to others.
