Boys love dangerous animals. This NO, DAVID!-inspired adventure features the wild-adventure approach of "Crocodile Hunter," as a boy encounters the deadliest and most fascinating animals on Earth.

This energetic new book from talented artist Robert Florczak will have readers immediately hooked! A young boy who appears to be on safari is pictured on each spread, alongside the world's most fearsome and exotic creatures--cobras, gorillas, and crocodiles, oh my! On every spread, a simple caption ("Yikes!", "Look out!") explains the true danger he's in. But at the story's end, readers are in for a surprise: a spread showing the boy, now home, sitting under a tree, reading a book. Did he really have a wild adventure? Readers can decide for themselves.

Florczak occasionally pushes the hallucinatory feel over the top (a bat cave rendered in fluorescent lavenders looks like a black-light poster), but not without a purpose: the final spread shows the boy asleep, holding a book about dangerous animals.
