The Adventures of Danny is a new series for 7-11 year-olds by popular author Pat Flynn. Each book comprises five or more entertaining stories about Dan – a typical boy who finds himself in mostly action-based dilemmas of his own making. Flynn uses his trademark humour to wrap gentle life lessons in layers of fun. Great to read aloud and discuss afterwards, as well as for attracting reluctant readers.

In the first of Dan's adventures he faces mean mutts, bumbling bees and mad magpies. It's a tough world out there in the Aussie suburbs, especially when you're squeezed between a bossy big brother and an irritating little sister. And it's even tougher when the animals are out to get you . . .
