Review:

I dislocated my jaw laughing -- Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl 228/10 - That's an understatement. -- William, age 10 Wicked illustrations that will help you tackle silly dangers. Made me laugh out loud and I know my friends at school will love it! -- Robyn, age 8 Awesome jokes that made me laugh out loud ... one of the funniest books I have read. -- Isla, age 9 I loved it because it is full of hilarious pictures . . . such as TEPOC - the Emergency Page Of Calm. Make a copy of this page and show it to your Mum when she is getting stressed! -- Ross, age 10 Loved it! Really enjoyed it - favourite chapter was the danger pets -- Jennifer, age 7 This book is very good for boys as it contains scary and rude things. . . ! -- Tomasz, age 9 Brilliantly silly * Sunday Express * A star turn that will amuse smart seven-year-olds, 17-year-olds, and, in our experience, 47-year olds . . . well-paced and funny throughout * Time Out London * A surreal, daft and funny book . . . A bracing satirical sideswipe at today's health-and-safety culture, aimed at kids who'll get the irony and relish the silliness. -- Financial Times Brilliantly funny * Gransnet.com * Laugh-out-loud * TheSchoolRun.com * Imagine the Mighty Boosh crashed into the Wimpy Kid * The Times *
