The surprise bestseller of 2006 - now fully revised to include dangerous Australian content.
The book which became an international phenomenon, Conn and Hal IGGULDEN'S Dangerous Book For Boys, now comes with a stunning green and gold cover - and a foreword by John Doyle (Rampaging Roy Slaven).
In addition to all the information which made it such a hit - how to make the perfect water bomb, how to read codes, what are the rules of cricket, who were the Kings and Queens of Europe, what are the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World - and just how do you deal with girls? - this gorgeous new edition is crammed with new Australian content.
Now you can read about local heroes like General John Monash at Gallipoli and the battles of Somme, find how to skin a kangaroo, get the lowdown on creatures that crawl, bite, sting and sometimes kill (and learn the first aid which can save you from them), have a quick reference guide to the Prime Ministers, learn how Australian football is played - and lots more...
With beautiful accompanying photographs, this is an indispensible book for all Australian boys, from eight to eighty.
