Wednesday 19th November 2pm GMT

Get ready with these curriculum linked lesson plans and chapter extracts!

Join top comedian David O’Doherty and award-winning illustrator Chris Judge for a side-splitting show introducing their new book: Danger Is Everywhere!

Hosted by former Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton, this event will give pupils lots of opportunity to engage with the book's hilarious text and illustrations and have everyone from reluctant readers to bookworms giggling (very safely) from start to finish.

There will be laugh-out-loud videos, a live Q+A and draw-along. Never has reading for pleasure been this much fun!

Will you find out how to tell if your teacher is a vampire? YES YOU WILL.

And what to do if your granny is a robot? THAT TOO.

Suitable for 7+

You can download an extract from Danger Is Everywhere here to find out what it’s all about and don’t forget to check back in October for lesson plans and activity sheets.
