    Psst! Pay attention: eleven-year-old Danny is about to start his secret life. And you are not allowed to tell anyone, or who knows what will happen? A mysterious time warp is already messing Singapore up. Big time. But don’t worry. Danny is about to transform into Danger Dan–the only boy superhero who can save us all! In Danger Dan Confronts the Merlion Mastermind, Danger Dan has to race against time to ensure the merlion doesn’t end up with orchids around its head! Sounds easy? Not when you see the odds he’s facing…

    Written by a mother-and-daughter duo, this fun new series for eight- to 12-year-olds mixes local history, comic book-style action and funky illustrations...In each book, they travel back in time to prevent Singapore's history from being written very differently - fancy a Merlion with orchids around its head?”
    —Akshita Nanda, The Sunday Times

  • Lesley-Anne and Monica Lim are a mother-and-daughter writing team. They sometimes argue, like all mothers and daughters do, but they are able to work together because they have many thing in common – such as their love for writing, eating and sleeping (not necessarily in that order). They have spoken at many schools and festivals because they love meeting Danger Dan fans.

    James Tan is an illustrator from Singapore. He likes to create comics and draw stuff, especially animals. He also enjoys doing traditional illustrations using ink and watercolor as there is something more tactile to these media, just like holding a book in your hand. He likes to draw things from his experiences as well as books he read. He enjoys travelling and drawing the new sights and sounds he sees around the world.
