Danger is Everywhere
Author: David O'Doherty Illustrator: Chris Judge
Just like this book says, danger is everywhere. Even in places where you might not expect there to be danger. Like wherever you are sitting while reading this book review.
Don't worry, though, because Docter Noel Zone (yes, Docter) is an experienced Dangerologist and is here to help you.
In this handy handbook, he will show you how to answer important questions like: 'Is my teacher actually a vampire?' Or: 'Is my cat actually a tiger?' There are also lots of tips on avoiding danger in your daily life, such as when visiting the supermarket or having a birthday party (you definitely don't want to mess with the banana leopards, for example).
This is a fun and very funny book written in a graphic style, with lots of pictures and silly diagrams to help explain the dangers.
Oh, and by the way: beware the Page 9 scorpion…

I LOVED IT! So funny! My favourite part was how "Docter" Noel yes "Docter" not "Doctor" removed the water from a swimming pool to make it safe even though that would make it a walking pool which doesn't even exist . I love how the book doesn't drag on like most other books I know. if I could I would rate it ten out of five stars

I liked this book because it was very funny, quite short and had quite a lot of pictures, but the downfall of this book and the reason why I didn't give the book 5 stars was because it was a bit repetitive, but other than that the book was great and I recommend it to anyone of any age.

This book was not very intersesting as it does not have much comedy
Jared, London, 06 February 2018
I like this book because it's funny and engaging, it is enjoyable for people to understand. It is good for people who enjoy humorous books. I recommend it for people from ages 8 and over. Overall, I think it's a very good book that people can enjoy if they are into comedy books.
Nathan, HBAED, 06 February 2018
I thought the book was good because it is a comedy and at the same time it tells u dangers around life even though how to deal with it was funny and silly. I recommended this for people that like comedy books. This reminds me of diary of the wimpy kid because with all the pictures and the speech bubbles. I choose this because of the bright colours and the blurb interested me.
kingsley, London, 05 February 2018
This book is AMAZING for people all ages as it teaches people how to be safe and how everyday items can be used to injure/kill/hurt people, it also explains in full depth why you should be careful with nearly everything you can see or touch!
Amari, Harris Boys' Academy, 05 February 2018
This book is AMAZING. It helps you with everyday things except for the cabbage parts. Many people can relate to this book as many people's parents are overprotective and if the children give this to the parents it may open a new world for many people as they will have different ways to overcome obstacles and I believe David O'Doherty emphasises this very well. Overall, it is a very good book recommend this to all ages and you should read it.
Tomi, Harris Boys Academy, 05 February 2018
I have not read this book yet but from the cover it looks like a comedy book And the bright yellow does stand out to me and plus when I flicked through the page it looks like a diary of a wimpy kid or tom gates which I really like
Roman Francis, London, 01 February 2018
I really like this book, the main character docter noel zone is a total troll and goes crazy on safety over the smallest least dangerous things. I would recommend this book for kids between 8 and 13.
Daniel, harrisboys east dulwich, 01 February 2018
I chose this book because it looked like a interesting book. it was interesting because it was about how you stay out of danger and there was some funny parts also. the last part was because it looked nice on the front cover.
George, Harris Boys London, 01 February 2018
I LOVED it so funny my favourite part was how Docter Noel removed the water from a swimming pool to make it safe even though that would make it a walking pool which doesn't even exist the book doesn't drag on like most other boks I know and if I col I would rat ten out of five stars

This book was amazing and funny and Mr noel is the funniest person ever and I would recommend this the most people that I know
sky, london, 01 February 2018
This book was about how to escape danger and how to stay away from danger and how to prevent danger where pets and bikes can kill you! My favourite character was doctor Novel Zone I found it interesting that it was very funny and it go me entertained.
Ahmad, London Harris Boys Acadmey East Dulwich, 01 February 2018
This book was about how almost everything is dangerous and where pets and bikes can kill you! My favourite character in this book was Doctor Noel Zone as he leads you through this adventure as a dangeroligist. I liked this book because I was L.O.L all the time; I couldn't put it down! You should read this book because it can tell you about the unknown aspects of danger;) and it's extremely funny.
Kristiyan, East Barnet School, 29 January 2018
I liked the fact that it was funny and really ridiculous but it didn't have a story line or plot or anything. He just rambled on the entire time about danger and towards the end it got a bit dull because a lot of it was just talking about the same things. I personally wouldn't recommend this book but that is just my opinion.
Thomas, Hinchley Wood, 11 January 2018
This book is good for people about 10 or under but I felt it was too childish for me and the jokes in it got to a point where I was laughing about how bad they were. If you like funny books, then go ahead but I would choose something else.
Theo, Hinchley Wood School, 11 January 2018
wasn't anything special in my opinion as there was really much going on it was just telling you stuff . i would have enjoyed it a lot more if it had been more of a story. There was not gripping / exiting / emotional parts of the story so there wasn't any moments where i was like , wow this is exiting as it was dull, i feel like it would have been beater suited to younger children. it was way to childish for me and would have suited probably children under the age of 10
Jacques, Hinchley Wood School, 11 January 2018
I really enjoyed the book, I couldn't stop laughing while reading and I love the creativity
Anoop, Bishops Stortford, 03 January 2018
Danger is Everywhere is a great book. It can teach you A LOT about safety and is very funny. I suggest anyone aged 7 to 12 years should read this book.
Matthew, Hampshire, 18 December 2017
This is a really funny book and I can not stop reading it. Every page is a cliff hanger.
Jakub , Kingsthorpe College, 07 December 2017
