"Essential for all boys (and tomboys)"
5 stars"

This book is crammed full of the most interesting info any child could want. It encourages children to get off the couch and go exploring and creating and dreaming of adventures. In today's world of video games, computers and couch potatoes, this book is a must-buy for parents and godparents, aunts and uncles or anyone who has a young male to buy for. They will need a fairly high reading ability – suggest 8–12yo.

This book is a must for boys of all ages. My 70 year old husband is thoroughly enjoying reading through the lines and we bought the book for our grandson!

My 9 and 11 year old nephews love this book


The bestselling book for every boy from eight to eighty, covering essential boyhood skills such as building tree houses, learning how to fish, finding true north, and even answering the age old question of what the big deal with girls is. The international publishing phenomenon has been adapted for Kiwi boys of all ages, with the addition of our own plants, animals, historical tragedies triumphs heroes and unique Southern hemisphere perspective.

The original won Book of the Year 2007 at the British Book awards, and this includes everything that worked so well in the English original and much much more - as well as a foreword by John Campbell, writing both as a Kiwi boy and the father of a beloved son.

If ever there was a book to make you switch off your television set, "The Dangerous Book for Boys" is it. This book recaptures Sunday afternoons, stimulates curiosity, and makes for great father-son activities. The brothers Conn and Hal have put together a wonderful collection of things that make being young or young at heart fun for boys -like making tripwires or a paper water bomb, table football, identifying insects and spiders and flying the world's best paper airplanes.

"The Dangerous Book for Boys" also gives you facts and figures at your fingertips - swot up on the solar system, learn about famous battles and read inspiring stories of incredible courage and bravery. Teach your old dog new tricks. Make a pinhole camera. There's a whole world out there: with this book, anyone can get out and explore it.

"The Dangerous Book for Boys" is written with the verve and passion that readers of Conn Iggulden's number one bestselling novels have come to expect. This book, his first non-fiction work, has been written with his brother as a celebration of the long summers of their youth and as a compendium of information so vital to men of all ages. Lavishly designed and fully illustrated in color and black and white throughout, it's a perfect gift for boys and men of all ages.

Accolades for the original UK version:

Winner of British Book Awards: Book of the Year 2007.
Shortlisted for Independent Booksellers' Book of the Year Award: Adults 2007.
