Great For: Cautious Kids; Alert Adults; Lovers of Random Comedy of All Ages
This fully illustrated, totally wacky handbook is about an everyman who is afraid of everything! Dr. Noel Zone, the greatest (and only) dangerologist in the world, is ready to teach readers how to avoid danger at all costs--from sneaky snakes posing as toothbrushes, to sharks hiding in toilets, to robots disguised as kindly grandmas. After all, DANGER IS EVERYWHERE, and we need to be prepared!
With art on every page, this hilarious and truly creative handbook will have readers laughing out loud (very safely) from start to finish.
