Great Stuff, Whizzo,
This review is from: The Dangerous Book for Boys (Hardcover)
I must have missed something along the way regarding the title of the book, and I certainly do not think it is the best choice, but that aside the book is a wealth of vital information for boys, young and old.
It is the type of book that William Brown (Just William) and his gang would have had hidden under the bed, or under a pile of dry leaves in the den.
It is full of vital information, stories of incredible courage, acts of bravery, the best places to capture your very own pirate. How to make a camera, even information about girls. There is information about dinosaurs, fishing (an essential pastime), even how to make crystals. All the things a young man needs to know about.
If you once owned a penknife with a special tool to take stones out of horses hooves, then this book is essential for you. And if you didn't well read it anyway, you will have lots of fun doing so.
