Since uploading their first ever videos as teenagers, Dan and Phil have become two of the world's biggest YouTube stars.

Here's just a small sample of the fun surprises readers can look forward to:

* The inside story of that time they met One Direction.
* Excerpts from Phil's teenage diary.
* Reasons why Dan's a fail (so far).
* How to draw the perfect cat whiskers.
* Reasons why Phil was such a weird kid (back then).
* Quizzes! Which of their dining room chairs represents you emotionally?
* What really happened in Vegas. . . .

In The Amazing Book Is Not on Fire, Dan and Phil are candid, heartfelt, and hilarious. Their struggles and success haven't changed their strong friendship or their core belief that it's okay to be weird. The cat whiskers come from within!

This full-color book is bursting with unseen photographs and drawings, making it an ideal gift for that hard-to-shop-for teen.
