Synopsis

Deadly Peril And How to Avoid it by Tracey Turner

From the author of 101 Things You Need to Know comes THE must-have Christmas gift of 2009. An enlightening and utterly compelling index of the world's deadliest Perils, how they might kill you, and how to evade them. Each Peril has its own 'report' - featuring a Peril rating out of 10, the worst possible outcome you might suffer, Peril avoidance tactics and a fact file. Four-colour throughout, fully designed, with illustrations and diagrams, the book will be divided into eight key areas of Peril, including 'Menace from the Deep', 'Small But Lethal' and 'Unexpected Perils'. An indispensable survival guide to help you deal with Perils of all kinds, even those you least expect, such as meteorites, frozen toilet waste falling from the sky, etc. The tone will be light, the details juicy, and the facts thoroughly researched. Aimed at ALL readers aged 8 to 80 who may find themselves in the path of Peril.

Reviews

'Once the covers have been opened (and which youngster would not open a red chest with a black skull and crossbones on it?) one cannot help dipping in and out of the treasure compulsively'
