The Danger Gang and the Pirates of Borneo!

Stephen Bramucci

Indiana Jones meets Lemony Snicket in this hilarious new series--fully illustrated by picture book talent Arree Chung--that's a must-have for all aspiring adventurers.

"The ride of a lifetime." --Matt de la Peña, Newbery Award-winning author

Ronald Zupan is a daring master adventurer! But he actually hasn't experienced any grand adventures . . . YET! When his world-traveling 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 and more dangerous, can Ronald and his companions muster enough courage to see this adventure through?
