Book Review: Harry Rides The Danger by Lancelot Schaubert

Harry woke at night: in his doorway stood THE DANGER. Harry learns first to face and follow Danger, then to court Danger. Harry takes the Danger out for chocolate cake, for jumping over mountains, for leaping over pits of snakes. Then he wields Danger to save lives, homes, and worlds from a world-ending fire.

Beautifully illustrated children’s book inspired by the historic Joplin tornado. In HARRY RIDES THE DANGER, the concept of courage is abstractly explained. Throughout the narrative, a boy discovers how to face and ride along with his fear. The danger is portrayed as a wolf.

This book is impressive with immaculate manga illustrations and emotive prose. The manga elements are entertaining to read and cleverly highlight the importance of imagination in times of adversity. a compelling narrative that is both heartwarming and thought-provoking.
