  • Mood:

be the best



Riding on the success of the DANGEROUS BOOK FOR BOYS are these two slim paperback volumes about how to be the best at everything. The disclaimer at the beginning of each book is almost reminiscent of the one that ran before the JACKASS series on MTV. In other words, don't try this at home, kiddos. Girls can learn how to predict the weather, grow a crystal, customize a T-shirt, and deal with bullies among other suggestions.




Boys, on the other hand, can learn to whistle with their fingers, read a compass, tie knots, and climb a rope. There is little in either volume, though, that is gender specific. So, boys can be best at many of the same things in the book for girls and vice versa. These will be fun to browse books for intermediate and middle school kids.
