Ill. by Mitch Vane. ABC Books, 2015. ISBN 9780733333330
(Age: 7-10) Like one of Danny Best's wild racing tracks in the yard, this book is full of movement, sound, smells and fun.
Danny Best is the self appointed leader of a group of friends and he and his mates enjoy a variety of adventures from playing cops and robbers, building their hair raising bike track to a scary camping night out.
Along with human friends, his animal company include Pugsley, the dog who is famous for his many aromas and Doctor Hook the aggressive cat.
Each page is a wild mixture of text, illustrations, and quips. It's a lot to take in but very amusing. Both Jen Storer and Mitch Vane have successfully blended their work into pages and pages of zany fun.
Every chapter is followed by a test to see how accurately the reader can answer questions about the story.
Danny Best, will be enjoyed by newly independent readers who want to read lengthier text or any child who enjoys reading humour.
A crazy, comical book for students aged 7 to 10 years old.
Jane Moore
