Noel Goes Sweater Shopping: Lynn Egan
You know it´s going to be a long day when you come to work on the busiest shopping day of the year to find a dead body on the floor. Juniper Junction, Colorado, is not some gun-slinging Wild West outpost; it´s a tony resort town where people come to get away from it all. And as the President of the Chamber of Commerce, it´s Lilly Carlsen´s job to make sure that happens. But add two teenagers, a failing parent, and a deadbeat ex-husband to the mix, and Christmas is shaping up to be murder.
SHORTLISTED FOR THE LAUGH OUT LOUD CHILDREN´S BOOK AWARDS 2016 The world´s greatest (and only) DANGEROLOGIST is back to make YOU into a Level 3 DANGEROLOGIST in his new SCHOOL OF DANGER handbook. Following a mishap involving his DANGER MOBILE (shopping trolley) and the local school dinner lady, Docter Noel Zone joins the teaching staff to help out. WARNING! BEWARE! CAUTION! But any POD (Pupil of Dangerology) knows that schools are full of DANGER - from VAMPIRE teachers to HAUNTED BOOKS! And when bikes start to go missing from around school, to Docter Noel, it´s never been clearer that DANGER REALLY IS EVERYWHERE Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets The Dangerous Book for Boys, DANGER REALLY IS EVERYWHERE is the third brilliantly funny handbook for avoiding danger of all kinds that will have everyone from reluctant readers to bookworms laughing out loud (very safely) from start to finish. Praise for the DANGER IS EVERYWHERE series: ´I dislocated my jaw laughing´ Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl ´A brilliantly silly survival guide´ Sunday Express ´A Joyful riposte to over-cautious parents . . . well-paced and funny throughout.´ Time Out London ´Imagine the Mighty Boosh crashed into the Wimpy Kid´ The Times ´A surreal, daft and funny book . . .

Here is how things stand at the beginning of newly licensed driver Ruby Oliver´s junior year at Tate Prep: Kim: Not speaking. But far away in Tokyo.Cricket: Not speaking.Nora: Speaking - sort of. Chatted a couple times this summer when they bumped into each other outside of school - once shopping in the U District, and once in the Elliot Bay Bookstore. But she hadn´t called Ruby, or anything.Noel: Didn´t care what anyone thinks.Meghan: Didn´t have any other friends.Dr. Z: Speaking.And Jackson. The big one. Not speaking. But, by Winter Break, a new job, an unlikely but satisfying friend combo, additional entries to The Boy Book, and many difficult decisions help Ruby to see that there is, indeed, life outside the Tate Universe. 1.
