Danger is Everywhere

danger is everywhereAugust's kids' book of the month, Danger is Everywhere, is a brilliantly funny survival handbook for avoiding danger. This book, published by Puffin, will be loved by fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and The Dangerous Book for Boys.

Taken from the notebooks of the enigmatic and ultra-cautious 'dangerologist' Doctor Noel Zone, Danger is Everywhere teaches you how to avoid danger of all kinds, with hilarious illustrations and laugh-out-loud anecdotes. 

Author of Artemis Fowl, Eoin Colfer, says "I dislocated my jaw laughing."

The book's illustrator, Chris Judge, is the award-winning author/illustrator of The Lonely Beast and a number of other picture books for children. His recent work includes "a week spent in a cafe painting breadboards with pictures of animals that may never have existed."

Its author, David O'Doherty, is a comedian, writer and regular guest on televisions show like QI and Have I Got News For You? Although the book has been written with children aged 8+ in mind, its humour will definitely have a crossover appeal for adults too.

"There is now 88% more danger in the world than I when I was a kid, when there was just the odd bit of lightning and an oocasional escaped zoo animal. Chris and I, via the delusions of the world's premier (only) dangerologist Doctor Noel Zone, are  delighted to terrify children with tales of awful made-up things that could happen. I mean, are you completely sure that your cat isn't a baby dinosaur?" says the author.
