From School Library Journal:

ea. vol: illus. by Michael Charlton. unpaged. EDC. Oct. 1985. PS $3.95. LC number unavailable. PreSchool-Grade 2 As part of the recent proliferation of titles on doctors, dentists and the like, these small-format books rank just below average. The texts, while not misleading, are not particularly inspired or inspiring. More significantly, the writing suffers from several grammatical errors, most commonly in the form of unclear pronoun references. Charlton's illustrations, which occasionally hint of Jan Ormerod's, fare slightly better. Mandy and the Dentist depicts Mandy fearing the dentist for the very first time because she needs a filling. Predictably, the dentist allays Mandy's fears with calm explanation, and the cavity is filled without much discomfort. Mandy must be treated for a serious cut in Mandy and the Hospital . Her doctor in this British clinic, an Indian woman, surpasses even the dentist with her generosity of spirit. Indeed, the doctor's patienceand timeare unrealistic, given the story's setting. But the doctor, like the dentist, plays the admirable role of providing Mandy and readers with a behind-the-scenes look at a potentially frightening situation. The "Mandy" books serve a purpose, but they are worthwhile purchases only for those in desperate need of books on the subject matter. Anne E. Mulherkar, formerly at District of Columbia Public Library
