The Daring Book for Girls by Andrea J. BuchananWhen Andrea Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz saw that HarperCollins published an "old-fashioned" and "politically incorrect" tome called The Dangerous Book For Boys , the ladies contacted the publishing company and asked whether a version for girls was in the works. There wasn't; the women pitched one, and the Daring Book For Girls was born. The book was first published in October. But unlike the boy version, which is full of outdoorsy stuff like chipping flint arrowheads and skinning rabbits, Philadelphia magazine's Sandy Hingston notes that the Girls book has pages on knotting friendship bracelets, a diagram of how to do a cartwheel, and recipes for shortbread and fudge. Uh, is that what one calls daring?

My home acquired a copy of The Daring Book for Girls last week and it was an instant hit. Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz. I know nothing about either author, but I think they did a great job. And to be honest, I was a little worried I might not like it. Would it be too pc? Would it be too girly and assume girls mostly like to groom?
