“Very addictive books that draw readers in like an action-packed movie! Engaging mix of imagery, humour, plot twists, all laced with a distinctive local flavour.”
—Chow Yian Ping, journalist, Lianhe Zaobao
“Expect the unexpected with Danger Dan as you join him on his adventures.”
—Susan Liang, History and Social Studies teacher, Pioneer Secondary School
“If Doctor Who were 11 years old and born in Singapore, he’d be a lot like Danger Dan. This time-travelling boy wonder romps through Temasek with a feisty female partner, offering a fun alternative to boring textbook versions of local history.”
—Clara Chow, journalist and parenting columnist
“Danger Dan cleverly weaves moments of history into an entertaining read. A page-turner!”
—Yao Lingyun, educator, Nanyang Girls’ High School
