Stranger Danger: The Internet by Mr. Mark A. Anderson is a book for both parents and children that speaks about the dangers of the Internet. Mary Lewis is sad that her parents won't let her get an account on social media. She is twelve and all her friends are on it. Mary's friend Josephine decides to set up an account for her when she is visiting. Mary's parents don't monitor her while she uses the internet as they think, since they use filters, she won't be going to any bad sites. Mary, on the other hand, is having fun on social media. She starts talking to Michael and develops a crush on him. The book speaks about the hazards of the Internet and the problems it can cause if not used in the right way.

It's a good book for parents and children who are on the Internet to use it safely without revealing too much information about their personal lives. The illustrations are colorful; they make the concept clear and breathe life into the scenes and characters. The author covers a relevant topic and it is educational and informative to both parents and children alike. The instances in the story teach young readers not to trust strangers and to be alert when they are on the Internet. Many times children tend to give away a lot of information to online friends. This book speaks about the dangers of trusting the so-called, unknown online "friends" who hide behind the screen of a computer. A good book for both parents and children alike that tells them about the dangers of the Internet.
