With a bright red cover entitled “Danger!” and the warning, “Open with Extreme Caution!” kids are almost certain to grab this book and open it enthusiastically at breakneck speed. Then, they’re quite likely to become lost in it for a long time.
What sort of “dangerous” content is included in this absorbing 192-page children’s book? The first chapter, “Nature’s Nasties,” enters into the world of sharks and other killer animals, animals that sting or feed on human blood, “monsters” which live in the deep sea, predators, and poisonous plants. Subsequent chapters include the themes usually of great interest to kids: explosives, Frankenstein (and other frightening monsters in literature and history), medical horrors, alien encounters, biological dangers, the science behind car crashes, and other gruesome topics in medicine and other sciences, history and geography.
The colourful illustrations and the astounding information will thoroughly captivate readers as young as nine or 10 years of age (although the Dorling Kindersley website states that the book is targeted at ages 12 years and up). Danger! is a book that readers can easily pick up, put down and pick up again – although it’s doubtful that they will want to put it down even for a second.
