Author information

Guy Macdonald was born in 1972. He grew up in a rambling old house surrounded by huge yew trees that he became very good at climbing. Across the fields was a river where he fished with string from a bamboo cane and made campfires. His greatest achievements of all time are: ripping a telephone directory in half, holding his breath for nearly two minutes underwater and whistling through a blade of grass. He has also co-written a series of children's fiction books called An Awfully Beastly Business about a werewolf boy who climbs trees, makes campfires and, given the chance, could almost certainly fold a single piece of paper at least seven times

By Third Oak 23 Apr 2013 3

I was keen to give this book to a young friend, that is, until I received it in the mail. I was disappointed to find that unlike the books such as "A Dangerous Book for Boys"; in THIS book the sketches/artwork were what I would call grotesque and unappealing.
Also I found some of the projects were not things that I would be encouraging my son/boys to do ... as several were far from noble. A few examples are:
"How to insult someone and get away with it" or
"How to annoy your Brothers and Sisters" or
"How to spook your family" etc.
I wish I hadn't spent money on this book. Though there ARE some lovely and good ideas throughout, yet it didn't outweigh the negatives for me.
