The Daring Book for Girls: One Slight Problem

November 4, 2007 @ 10:39 pm | Filed under:

I’m supposed to be posting a review of The Daring Book for Girls here tomorrow. The problem is, I haven’t read it yet because I cannot get it away from my daughters.

Jane just may have to be the one to review it. She snatched it up the moment it arrived, and that’s the last I saw of it.

Come to think of it, I haven’t seen much of her either. She surfaced briefly, brandishing a roll of packing tape, to ask if we had any old newspapers she could use to make a waterproof cushion for sitting on out-of-doors.

"It’s from the book," she explained.

She’s asleep right now…maybe I can sneak into her room and snatch the book from her bedside table. Because that’s the kind of daring girl I am.

    I was wondering about this book. Can’t wait to hear your review although Jane’s actions speak for themselves. Now I think I know what to get my niece for Christmas.

    Is this the girls version of “The Dangerous Book for Boys” by Iggulden??? The cover looks very similar.

    Oh, I want that book! But I’m afraid that if I get it for me my kids will snatch it away.

    Since I only have boys, we have the Dangerous Book for BOys and love it. I may have to buy this one for ME!!

    What better recommendation can a book receive? I love the one for boys. My boys would recommend it, too…as soon as they stop telling me about ancient Kings of Great Britain. I expect it could happen anytime in the next three years.
