Danger! presents page after page of information on things that are dangerous in this world and out of this world. These things exist in nature, our environment, space, science, our own bodies and much, much more.

This is a very cool book! It's similar to other books published by DK in that each 2-page spread tackles a different subject with using eye-catching designs, colourful and interesting graphics/illustrations, as well as informative text. Even though it's written for 10-17 year-olds, I l

The parasite Wuchereria bancrofti is a roundworm that is injected into your blood by a mosquito. They then travel to the lymph vessels and grow to an enormous size, blocking the vessel and causing elephantiasis in the leg.

With that being said, I decided to twin this book up with the graphic novel Lost Boy. Both these book have a darker side to them presented in comic book form. The main character, Nate, goes on an ...more

In Danger!, turning the page is like stumbling across a new website; each is filled with freaky, petrifying factoids from science, nature, and history. Perfect for fact-seeking youngsters ages 8 to 12.
