caries.meC. Skjott's 'The incomparable Caries'

A novel account of the caries process from the perspective of none other than ‘Caries’ himself! The story depicts a young boy named Ollie who through frequent sugar consumption and a lackadaisical approach to oral hygiene finds himself the canvas for the artist Caries and his aptly named friends; Lac’, St’, and Nei’ to create their masterpieces – tooth cavities.

I believe this book would appeal to a variety of children, the bright illustrations appealing to younger children and the inclusion of simple tooth anatomy and more complex language to a slightly older age group; although some concepts such as the bacterial origins of Caries’ friends’ names may not be understood. I feel this book would make a valuable teaching aid for the delivery of oral hygiene in a classroom setting or as an addition to any reading list, and whilst it may not fully comply with the Department of Health guidelines it still makes for an interesting read.

I shall leave you with Caries’ chilling message to take care of your teeth or he will!
