Avoid Climbing Mount Everest! Paperback
by Ian Graham
Illustrated by David Antram
Part of the The Danger Zone series
As an enthusiastic climber, you are delighted when you receive the call to climb the most intimidating peak, the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest!
But the team must plan ahead, as many have died climbing Everest and their bodies are still there. Or are they? Many mysteries still surround this formidable mountain, including the Yeti and the missing body of Mallory.
But whatever you do, make sure you take a camera in case you reach the top!
The Danger Zone is a constantly-growing library of over 50 exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history.
The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes (or sandals or army boots or cloth sacks) of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived - from pyramid builders to viking explorers, from medieval knights to the crew of the Titanic.
This approach encourages readers to get emotionally involved with the story and characters, aiding their understanding of some of the most important periods in history.
Humourous cartoon-style illustrations and speech bubbles bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events. Each spread comes complete with a Handy Hint box, offering a clever tip on how to survive whatever ghastly situation you've found yourself in.
A complete glossary and index featured in every title makes The Danger Zone an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
