    5-0 out of 5 stars He WILL read this book.... but you should too
    There's definitely no tip-toeing around in this book, which is exactly why boys will actually read it.Although I was a little shocked by the authors' candor at times, I also recognize the only way to really get through to adolescent boys is on their playing field.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Wish I Had this Growing Up...Every 13 year old Boy Needs this Book.
    I purchased this book for my friends son who is 13 years old and before giving it to her I read through it myself. All of the information is very important (12+ years old) and can help educate young boys to make decisions based on knowledge they obtained before there is a problem rather than after, like what I went through when I was growing up and I'm sure countless others have that did not have the benefit and knowledge in this book.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good info, a little too advanced
    The first third of this book contained good information for my 11-year-old son.It explains what happens to a boy's body in a way he was able to understand.The remainder of the book also has good information, but the topics of intercourse and STDs were more than my son was ready for. ...

    Editorial Review

    Young Jeremy Jacob is plucked from obscurity while innocently constructing a sand castle and is thrust into a brand-new life as a pirate. Captain Braid Beard and his crew recognize Jeremy as an exceptionally talented digger and they happen to be in desperate need of a digger to help them bury a treasure chest. Jeremy thinks a pirate life sounds like fun, as long as he’s back the next day in time for soccer practice, and so he goes along with the ragtag group of seafaring thugs (with hearts of gold, naturally). And while Jeremy adores the pirates’ lack of table manners and opposition to vegetables, he comes to realize that a life away from his parents lacks some of the niceties to which he’s become accustomed. Nobody tucks him in at night, for instance, and the only book available to read is a treasure map. Melinda Long’s story, narrated with a sense of boastful exaggeration by Jeremy, is full of a sense of high adventure that's lovingly evocative of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tales. David Shannon's illustrations, full of a goofy vibrancy, are a perfect accompaniment to the story. (Ages 4 to 8) Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars How I Became A Pirate
    Wonderful illustrations and a cute story with a message for children. Cleverly written in a way that prompts little would-be pirates to chime in!

    5-0 out of 5 stars My daughter, the pirate
    Vibrant pictures, plenty of opportunity to attempt the personage of a pirate, and touches on things near and dear to my daughter's heart: stories at bed time, table manners (not so much), soccer and brushing your teeth.She loves it so I love it, too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff, Good Stuff
    I read this book to my English Language Learner first graders and got rave reviews. The illustrations (by David Shannon of "No, David" fame... another winner) are dynamic and eye-catching, and the text is at once both comprehensible and exciting.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
    My son is actually reading and enjoying the book. As a teenager he has many questions but he is hesitant to ask. This book came handy it covers wide range of subjects and answers questions in a direct way.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Like a textbook
    My 12 year old son keeps this book in a stack by his bed, but finds it too clinical--like a textbook.He likes "What's Going on On There" better because it's has a more humorous approach.As time goes on, however, he may appreciate the deeper lever of detail and information provided here.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A helpful resource
    While no book on this subject is going to cover everything exactly the way you might prefer, this book does a very good job of covering a variety of topics related to sexual development.The material is presented in an easy-to-read, factual manner.After reviewing the book myself, I gave it to my 12 year old son, who looked at me as if to say "I know this stuff already".Yet the next day, he thanked me for giving him the book and said it had cleared up some misunderstandings he had.We were then able to talk about some of his questions and impressions from the book. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Okay stories
    Good book about growing up and some of the great stories you're expect from your grandfather. Could have used less information on the beatings headmasters used to give students.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Some are funny. Some are painful. Some are unpleaseant. Perhaps this is why I have remembered them so vividly. All are true.
    So says Roald Dahl in the introduction to his autobiogrophy,BOY. The book is a collection of his childhood memories, from the magical summers in Norway to the dreary days at St.Peters boarding school. As in all of Dahl's works the characters are quirky and memorable,but more fascinating here because they really existed. The auther recounts the adventures of his childhood with tenderness and dry humor.
    5-0 out of 5 stars delightful melodrama
    I'm a Dahl fan, a writerfor both adults and children. I think the key to his success as writer for children is that he doesn't think children are stupid or don't understand what they see. From my own experience, and now as a father, I know that children see, hear, think and make conclusions with their experiences.

They had started to ask me questions about different things they had heard at school from their friends, etc., and I decided to look for books they could read that would give them some correct, age appropriate information.

Anyways (again) It has everything a boy is will be likes and feelsyour son or you if your a boy reading this would love it buy it right now!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great birthday gift for 9+ year old boys
    We checked this book out of the library for my son after reading about it on one of their "recommended reading" lists for boys.After watching my son walk around day after day with it, and seeing him fold down every other page in the book, I had to get him his own copy.I ordered two extras for gifts.The first one he gave was a huge hit - the boy's mom told me that her son was also enthralled with it.The third copy never even made it to a birthday party - a friend came over with her two sons (8 and 10) and they were having so much fun reading through the book that I had to give them the last copy.Soon I'll be ordering more to stock up for upcoming parties - this is a sure hit for boys.Just in time too - once they hit 9 or so, it's hard to figure out what to give as gifts since toys are beginning to lose their luster.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Boy Stuff is Hot Stuff!
    For a 10-year old boys, summer and boredom could be synonymous.Not with the Big Book of Boy Stuff!Our son saw a classmate's book, brought often to school for free reading time, and could not bear the brief bits of time he was allowed to read his friend's.He had to have his own, to bring home, to read outside, to read in bed.This book is chock full of fascinating facts and fun activities that a boy can do on his own.10 is an age when independence rocks!This book keeps the boy and his parents happy for many long hours. ...

    I read about this book in EW and immediately went online to buy it.The topic sounded so refreshing.I tore through this book in about half the time it takes me to read a book of this length.I know this sounds cliche, but this was truely laugh out loud funny.I woke up my wife on numerous occasions laughing as I read long after she has fallen asleep in bed.
    4-0 out of 5 stars If you like Freaks and Geeks...
    A whimsical murder mystery wrapped up in a music-obsessed episode of Freaks and Geeks. Engaging, clever, and often very funny. You don't have to be part of the teen/young adult audience to enjoy it, either. (I'm 31). 4.25/5.

    5-0 out of 5 stars STUPENDOUS!!!
    A refreshing and brilliant coming of age novel.There are few books that have engrossed me as this one did. The protagonist is an introverted, awkward adolescent with a rampant imagination and extensive vocabulary who will quickly steal your heart and captivate your soul. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars No No No
    I am a huge fan of this series, and this really was disappointing. The writing bit was decent, but the illustrations didn't meet my standards whatsoever. i was thoroughly disappointed with a few of the drawings as they didn't even follow the author's descriptions. It was irritating reading a book in a series I enjoy immensly that was so dismal.

    2-0 out of 5 stars A cool idea, but it could have been much better.
    I picked this up in a bookstore the other day.I had almost purchased it once, but I am now very glad that I didn't.I looked at the pics. and they were pretty good. (although I do really prefer to view characters and scenes in my own head) I preceded to read the text, which I finished reading in about ten minutes!I'd say that this book was a really cool idea, but for a price around $7, I don't think that this is worth it.

    this book brings to life everything i imagined when reading the first several books. i know many people complained about this book not covering all of the territories. i am kind of glad it hasn't covered the books that have not yet been written. i would prefer to use my own imagination first. i believe there will be a follow-up to this book when the rest of the series is written. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Teenage Guy's Survival Guide
    This book is about dating, dumping and being dumped also how to deal with it. It is about puberty changes and how to deal with them and what to do. This book is about all you need to know to be a teenager. My favorite part of the book was the part the author talked about dating. This part of thee book informed me about how to approach a girl and how not to approach a girl. It also told me never to send a friend to ask someone out for you. It told me how to act when you dump someone or if you get dumped. It told me how to act on a date and what to do and what not to do. It also said what to do on a date and what not do on a date. This part of the book told me that a little cologne goes a long way so don't over does. I recommend this book because it was a great help. Now I know how to approach a girl the right way. I know how to have a good date and what to do on a date. Another reason I recommend this book is because I know how everything works puberty wise and that it happens to everybody. The last reason I recommend this book is because it tells you everything you need to know about being a teenager.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!
    I'm a thirteen year old boy and I reserved this book at the library to read some time ago. I found it answers a lot of questions about growing up and puberty, although the part about sex was pretty short.
    5-0 out of 5 stars More! More! More!
    I am a boy at age 12, and when i read this book i was amazed. I learned a lot. The stuff you cant talk about with your parents is in here. The truth is embarassing, but i loved it. The book is really funny, too. This book covers everything from your first date to masturbation. Not too much about sex, only one page. I reccomend this book for 11-16 year olds.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for kids with autistic siblings
    ...well, perhaps my title isn't entirely fair.This is a wonderful book, beautifully written, with a marvelous twist in the end.It deals with the discomforts of being different, of being related to someone who is really different. My son and my nephew BOTH loved this book, but only one of them has an autistic sister.Choldenko deserves huge kudos for writing about an autistic teenager with the compassion and knowledge that she does.But then, she herself grew up with an autistic sibling.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The family dynamics were easy to relate to and the angst of a middle school kid, new to a school is one all of us can relate to. I teach 8th grade and the reading level wouldn't be challenging for that grade level but the subject matter is engaging. I'd recommend it highly. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars SOMEBODY PLEASE RESCUE THIS BOOK FROM ITS AUTHOR
    This audio CD had me excited at first, at least until I actually played it. It's the most boring read of any story I've ever heard in my life. Golding's a great writer, but he ain't no reader. His own commentary in parts is distracting and irritating. His mouth noises unsettle me, and his slow, dull, expressionless rendering of this classaic grates on the spirit. Too bad an accomplished reader such as Roger Dressler or Garrick Hagon can't do this novel justice. It's just a damned shame is all.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Lord of the Flies
    I purchased the book on cds for my daughter's 8th grade class.They truly enjoyed having this book on cds so they can follow the reading in class.It was clear and the narrator was great.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Excellent story - not sure about the narrator...
    If I were scoring the story, it would have 5 stars. Unfortunately this reading my the author isn't all that great. For one, it's dated and the audio quality suffers from than. There is no consistency in the sound so one minute he sounds okay and the next as though he's stepped away from the microphone. Another annoying factor is the breathing and sighing while he's reading making the whole thing sound like a chore. It's a pity because this is an excellent story but the narration could use improvement. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not flat out amazing, but pretty decent
    For once, a school related book that did not bore me out of my misery.
    3-0 out of 5 stars not...COMPLETE...torture
    I love reading, especially historical fiction, but, I think this book would have been more interesting if it hadn't been first written so long ago. I found a lot of the dialog and wording very hard to understand, and I'm a straight "A" student. Most of the book was very dull and poorly written, but at least a third of it had some interesting "action" or something in it. I had to read this book for school, and it wasn't complete torture, but it was pretty bad. I wouldn't suggest buying this book or reading any other works of Conrad Richter.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Piece of American Literature
    Okay, first of all, people like MeeMoo who think historical fiction is boring, shouldn't read or report on it. I don't report on video games, which I think are stupid, so why is MeeMoo on my turf? Secondly, teachers should not force kids to read & report on literature written for adults - it's not fair to the kids, who are not developmentally or intellectually ready for this kind of novel, and it's not fair to the novel. So teachers, get your acts together!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ian Fleming is alive and well in Charlie Higson
    I consider myself a well read Bond person, even used the early Bond films in the classroom, and have had the opportunity to meet many of those connected with the films at various conventions and gatherings.Author Charlie Higson has done the impossible.He has restored the flavor that the better Ian Fleming books had, the special touch that made one read a Fleming novel more than once to recapture the joy.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Higgins hits another home-run
    Charlie Higgins has produced another winner in this second installment of his "Young James Bond" series. His grasp of the character and traditional style make these novels, arguably, the best Bond stories since Ian Fleming's death. Don't let the "young readers" tag fool you; these adventure yarns rank on a par with Harry Potter in terms of rollicking enjoyment for readers of all ages.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A real bona fide page-turner, the best 007 continuation novel for over 20 years
    With one of the most ardent critics of the Young Bond idea recently stating on a fan-run Web site that author Charlie Higson's second foray into the world of a teenage James Bond was so good that he read it twice. Higson certainly seems to have come a long way since the initial announcement of his assignment was received with an equalmixture of curiosity and horror by the fan community.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Code Talker
    What did Navajo Indians do in World War 2?The title of my book is Code Talker by Joseph Bruchac.The main character is Kii Yazhi.He is forced to go to boarding school.From boarding school he heads off to war.
    5-0 out of 5 stars code talker review
    my son asked me to pick out a relatively short book from the library for his 8th grade book report.Code talker was it.After he raved about it, and spoke of some specifics, i read it myself before returning to the library.It is a beautifully told tale that intertwines the 'simple' english translation of a navajo language filled with spirituality, respect, honor, and a mythological belief in how things came to be.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Code Talkers
    Code Talkers is a fantastic book. The author Joseph Bruchac really knows how to write a good book. When the main charector was growing up he was told he would be nothing. When he got out of boarding school he was on his way to being a big succes.

They all come from rich families and that`s where ALex`s adventure begins. Below I will list the good points and bad points of the book:

    4-0 out of 5 stars Cute pictures, very appropriate.
    I wanted a book that not only I could read to my son, but one that I would feel comfortable letting a baby sitter read to him. This gets the point across and doesn't go into a lot of detail about what body parts are named. I can read this as a regular story without my son even knowing I am "teacing" him. I like that.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love It!
    I had purchased the Potty Book for Girls for my now almost 6yo daughter.It was great.She loved it.Now its my boys turn.I have begun reading the book for them and they love it.It is just like the Girl one but blue with a boy.They like "reading" it themselves.The pages are coated and much more durable.Great tool to begin potty training.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Catchy, and Fun.
    We read this to our twin boys every time we sit them on the potty. It helps them relax, and get excited to go. I don't think this is useful as a guide to potty train your child, but it is a cute little book that will encourage them, and keep their interest. Both of my sons have learned to recite the book themselves they love it! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A very realistic book (coming from me)
    I have family members that have expierienced this adventure of "crossing the wire". It is not only hard but its also sad, sad because not only are you suffering but you see other people suffer and that ther can get really tough. This book goes in detaial what one person, Victore Flores had to do to cross. Now if whatever happend to him in the story affects you in any way, just think about all the people that are crossing just to see how it is like here, or even to get money for their family. I think they deserve a little simpathy. Overall this book is a great book to read, you'll get addicted i guarantee it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Loved it
    As an author, I was freaking out about how timely this book was, given all the talk of illegal immigration, etc. Then I read it, and was even more impressed. This is a terrific book, far more interesting than a lot of news stories I've read on the topic, from a master of the genre. I fear it won't get the attention it deserves, solely because it's a YA book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Read And You Might Learn Something
    Once again Will Hobbs has put together a boy's story that leads the reader not only on an adventure but also gives insight into ways of life in which most of us are unfimiliar. Overwhelmed in the knowledge that his mother and little brother will soon end up living on the streets the young lad of Crossing Jordan decides that he must sneak across the American border where there is hope he can make enough money to send home.The adventure is the telling of all the efforts, and failures, the boy must go through to accomplish such a feat.

    As a parent and a teacher, I would highly recommend these books for people of all ages. Even though this is a collection, one doesn't need to read the books in order to understand the vivid characters or lively plots. These books not only make you think about how you treat others, they make you laugh out loud while doing it. ... Read more
