The Lovereading4Kids comment

August 2014 Book of the Month This book lets you know exactly how to avoid all sorts of dangers of the most unlikely kind. It is a brilliantly funny handbook that will have boys and girls with enquiring minds completely hooked.Dangerologist Doctor Noel Zone shares his danger notebooks with all comers! A great believer that risks are everywhere his attitude to dangers of all kinds - even the most extreme ones - is hilarious. Whatever the risk and whatever the danger, Chris Judge illustrates them all brilliantly. A hilarious handbook for all those who love The Diary of A Wimpy Kid!

A message from the author, David O'Doherty:

There is now 88% more danger in the world than when I was a kid, when there was just the odd bit of lightning and an occasional escaped zoo animal. Chris and I, via the delusions of the world's premier (only) dangerologist Docter Noel Zone, are delighted to get this opportunity from Puffin 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?
