Look inside the book

Synopsis
InĀ Secrets of Singapore: Changi Airportļ»æ,Ā Danger Dan and Gadget Girl take to the skies!

The two superheroes find out that thereā€™s more to Changi Airport than just planes and passengers. They reveal intriguing secrets in places like the taxiways (which have nothing to do with taxis), the runways (which have nothing to do with running) and the apron (which has nothing to do with cooking). Jewel is a real gem, though.

Thatā€™s not all!

Danger Dan and Gadget Girl also discover that video game devices are used to screen baggage, that someone once lost a pet hamster in the airport and why food tastes like cardboard in a plane (hint: itā€™s not because the chefā€™s a dud).

Join Danger Dan and Gadget Girl as they clear the air by solving all the mysteries shrouding Changi Airport!Ā

They have spoken at many schools and festivals because they love meeting Danger Dan fans.
