This nonfiction quiz book has a “dare to choose” theme that asks readers what they’d prefer in unpleasant and unexpected situations. Throughout the book, the page layout consists of wacky questions and quizzes that really push readers to think outside of the box and their comfort zones, such as: "If you were on a deserted island, would you prefer to be alone OR with an arch-enemy?" The questions also encourage groups of kids to become engaged by asking questions like: "You are with a group of friends walking through a deep, dark wood. There are monsters, lots of monsters. Do you take the lead and walk at the front of the line or bring up the rear?” This book is filled with silly questions and daring activities which will keep kids engaged and laughing while they decide what wacky choices they should make. Although Do You Dare? is a nonfiction title, there is no index or glossary, but, due to the work’s brevity and subject focus, an index/glossary is not needed.
