Danger is Everywhere: A Handbook for Avoiding Danger

Price £7.99
Publisher Puffin

A comic compendium full of quirky instructions and warnings on how to avoid danger and become a dangerologist. Purportedly written by Docter (definitely not Doctor) Noel Zone with help from his neighbours who are better known as a comedian and an illustrator. The format of a handbook could encourage children to create their own on a subject that appeals to them, using a humorous tone as in this book or a more seriously factual one! The layout of short chunks of text interspersed with black and white drawings enables readers, including those who are less confident, to dip in and out.
