"My students just love the energy and fun of Danger Dan and Gadget Girl, with all her cool tools. We cannot keep the books on the shelves as our students voraciously read through the series!"
—Nadine Bailey, Teacher Librarian, Canadian International School
"A brilliantly written book about adventure and creativity, set in futuristic Singapore. My students were enthralled as they travelled to Gadget Girl’s world with Danger Dan. They rolled on the floor laughing, enjoying every moment with Power Paws."
—Gracie Abadesco, Year 3 teacher, Chatsworth International School
"Reading Danger Dan is like reading about my ten-year-old son. Dan is so real that I expect him to step out of the pages and befriend my boy. Yet, amidst all the rollicking fun that's typical of a schoolboy's life, I am warmed by his courageous heart and his friendship with Gadget Girl. The story of Danger Dan is more than science fiction--it is a call to wake the superhero in all of us."
—Pauline Loh, author of Not in the Stars, runner-up for the Scholastic Asian Book Award 2012
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.
