Review Text

This companion to The Boys' Book (September 2007) gives advice on how to do things from the ridiculous to the sublime. The boy's version tells how to escape quicksand, build a raft and fly helicopters. The girls' version teaches them how to do magic tricks, science experiments, garden and solve the popular Sudoku puzzles. They can also learn how to survive alien invasions (follow what movie characters have done), to annoy people in an elevator (meow occasionally), and how to cope after a zombie attack (just avoid getting bitten). This eclectic collection of both useful and silly advice will likely afford plenty of giggles along with handy tips. Illustrations demonstrating specific steps for making kites, doing origami and doing one's hair in a French braid are clear and concise. A fun book for a rainy day or sleepover even if the topics reinforce gender stereotypes. (Nonfiction. 8-12) (Kirkus Reviews)show more
