While the authors aim to spark adventure, imagination and resourcefulness, they always maintain a tongue-in-cheek humor, echoing the tone of the boys' version. Buchanan and Peskowitz encourage girls to take on these challenges, but not to take them all too seriously. Isn't that what girlhood is all about?

Synopsis

The Daring Book for Girls is the manual for everything that girls need to know—and that doesn't mean sewing buttonholes! Whether it's female heroes in history, secret note-passing skills, science projects, friendship bracelets, double dutch, cats cradle, the perfect cartwheel or the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking, this book has it all. But it's not just a guide to giggling at sleepovers—although that's included, of course! Whether readers consider themselves tomboys, girly-girls, or a little bit of both, this book is every girl's invitation to adventure.

Clearly this book will not be on Insitut Villa Pierrefeu's required reading list. Which would be a shame, because Buchanan and Peskowitz certainly give girls of all ages (and their occasionally clueless dads) a fun, inspirational and inspired guidebook.
