about

Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets The Dangerous Book for Boys, DANGER IS EVERYWHERE is a brilliantly funny handbook for avoiding danger of all kinds that will have everyone from reluctant readers to bookworms laughing out loud (very safely) from start to finish.

DOES IT WARN YOU ABOUT WHAT TO DO IF A SHARK COMES UP OUT OF THE LOO WHILE YOU ARE SITTING ON IT?
Yes it does.

AND HOW TO FIND OUT IF YOUR GRANNY IS A ROBOT?
That too.

AND WHAT TO DO IF A VOLCANO ERUPTS UNDERNEATH YOUR HOUSE?
After you've made sure it's not a neighbour's barbecue, this book will let you know exactly how to deal with it.

'I dislocated my jaw laughing' Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl
