Danger Really is Everywhere: School of Danger by David O'Doherty

*SHORTLISTED FOR THE LAUGH OUT LOUD CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARDS 2016* The world's greatest (and only) DANGEROLOGIST is back to make YOU into a Level 3 DANGEROLOGIST in his new SCHOOL OF DANGER handbook. Following a mishap involving his DANGER MOBILE (shopping trolley) and the local school dinner lady, Docter Noel Zone joins the teaching staff to help out. WARNING! BEWARE! CAUTION! But any POD (Pupil of Dangerology) knows that schools are full of DANGER - from VAMPIRE teachers to HAUNTED BOOKS! And when bikes start to go missing from around school, to Docter Noel, it's never been clearer that DANGER REALLY IS EVERYWHERE Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets The Dangerous Book for Boys, DANGER REALLY IS EVERYWHERE is the third 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. Praise for the DANGER IS EVERYWHERE series: 'I dislocated my jaw laughing' Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl 'A brilliantly silly survival guide' Sunday Express 'A Joyful riposte to over-cautious parents ...well-paced and funny throughout.' Time Out London 'Imagine the Mighty Boosh crashed into the Wimpy Kid' The Times 'A surreal, daft and funny book ...A bracing satirical sideswipe at today's health-and-safety culture, aimed at kids who'll get the irony and relish the silliness.' Financial Times 'Brilliantly funny' Gransnet 'A brilliantly mapcap guide' ni4Kids.com 'Laugh-out-loud' TheSchoolRun.comcom.
