Danger is Still Everywhere: Beware of the Dog! Will Docter Noel Zone's second book tell you how to combat a Crocumm? Yes. And reveal the secrets of the world's greatest (and only) Dangerologist? That Too. Has he written it yet? No. Is it because he's hiding in a wardrobe? Maybe. Docter Noel is facing his most terrifying situation Ever - a little dog called Napkin has come to stay. That may not sound particularly dangerous, but every POD (Pupil of Dangerology) knows the only safe pet is a pet rock. So now Docter Noel is hiding in a wardrobe while Napkin wreaks havoc around the Dangerzone. And all the while Docter Noel is supposed to be writing his new Very Important handbook on Dangerology (Level 2). That is until the Pet of the Year (POTY) contest is announced and Docter Noel hatches a plan. There's only one problem. Serial safety-flouter Max WURST is the judge...For Docter Noel, it's never been clearer that Danger is Still Everywhere: A crocodile that looks like a vacuum cleaner that lives under the stairs. Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets The Dangerous Book for Boys, Danger is Still Everywhere is the second 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.
