About this product
- DescriptionMost kids have pretty good instincts and stay safe on the streets. But even the most street-smart kid could benefit from reading this book. There may be dangers out there that you may t even have thought of! From cycling and skateboarding safely, to awareness around, dogs, strangers, building sites and public transport, these are just some of the things you should be aware of when you are out and about but the book covers a lot more besides. This book will help you stay safe because it is full of advice on what to do if you think you are in danger, and also how to avoid or minimise danger in the first place. An essential guide for any child. Full of sensible and relevant information for modern kids. Keeping Safe is a series of four books aimed at children aged 9+, dealing with the hot topics on staying safe in the modern world.
- Author BiographyI write short books for short children and longer books for longer people. I've been writing fiction and non-fiction for young people, and non-fiction since the last millennium - luckily, the end of the last millennium and I'm not even nearly 1000 years old. I particularly enjoy reading and writing stories with a bit of a twist and, for older readers, an element of horror. I definitely have a Gothic streak. Writers I really admire include Minnie Gray, Oliver Jeffers, Shaun Tan, Edward Gorey, Tove Jansson, Marcus Sedgwick, Siobhan Dowd and Melvin Burgess. I love being a writer because (a) it gives me the chance to be enthusiastic about things and share my enthusiasm with other people (b) I get paid for telling lies and (c) I don't have to do as I'm told, unlike people with a real job. I like to listen to music when I'm writing, and usually pick a few pieces of music that go with each book and listen to them again and again - most of them are opera. Although I spend most of my time writing, I also spend some helping other people with their own writing - mostly young people, who are doing a degree at university. This is great fun as I get to read lots of stories by writers who are just starting. I live in Cambridge, which is a very ancient city in the east of England with lots of ornate and pointy buildings. It's very flat in Cambridge, so it's easy to go everywhere by bicycle, but it's also rather wet. If I could live anywhere at all, it would probably be in Venice, which is also flat, ancient and full of pointy buildings. It's even wetter than Cambridge, and people go everywhere by boat.
