We can’t wait to welcome Steve Bramucci and Arree Chung and be introduced to The Danger Gang, their new book full of adventure, suspense, humor and heart that Mac Barnett (The Terrible Two) said read like a "A fast-paced, comic update of a classic swashbuckler!" 

"Readers everywhere will devour the hilarious, action-packed adventures of Ronald Zupan. In this dazzling debut, Steve Bramucci takes us on the ride of a lifetime. Warning: devilish traps and ferocious pirates ahead!" Matt de la Peña (Last Stop on Market Street) 

Meet Ronald Zupan, a daring master adventurer who actually hasn't experienced any grand adventures . . . YET! When his parents are kidnapped on his twelfth birthday, Ronald seizes the chance to prove himself with a dazzling, danger-defying rescue operation. Teaming up with his trusty butler Jeeves, his quick-witted fencing nemesis Julianne Sato, and his pet cobra Carter, Ronald sets course for the jungle of Borneo where his parents were last sighted. If they can crash-land a plane and outrun a hungry snow leopard, surely they can find the secret lair of Zeetan Z, the world's most ruthless pirate! But as their adventure becomes more dangerous, can they muster enough courage to see this adventure through?

Stephen Bramucci is an award-winning travel writer and adventurer. He's rowed down the Mekong Delta, crossed the Australian outback in a car powered by French fry oil, and explored ancient pirate islands in Madagascar. A lifelong animal lover, Steve's encounters with endangered species often come up in his presentations. 

Arree Chung is the author and illustrator of Ninja!,  Ninja! Attack of the Clan, and Out! as well as the illustrator of How to Pee: Potty Training for Boys/Girls. Prior to writing and illustrating picture books, Arree worked at Pixar.
