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!

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?
*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.
Shortlisted for the Laugh-Out-Loud Book Awards 2016, 9-13 years Category Dr Noel Zone is without doubt the world’s greatest dangerologist, and his books are required reading for anyone eager to avoid danger wherever it may lurk and, as we know from his first book, danger really is everywhere: toast, pets, birthday cake, bicycles EVERYTHING is a potential threat to wellbeing! Imagine the doctor’s horror therefore when danger is introduced into his house in the form of a yapping, shoe-chewing, pee-and-poop-doing havoc machine called Napkin (ie a small puppy belonging to his sister). This is another brilliantly funny survival guide, the kind of book readers carry around so that they can read favourite passages out loud to friends and family. Huge fun and great for dipping into. ~ Andrea Reece 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.
